Terry - I could even load a Gold Wing on those ramps. That makes the loading very inviting. The angle you have should reduce the torque on the rubber so the glue may be enough to hold it.

Terry,
Like I said just food for thought. One problem with the jack stands is that if you are not on level ground you could have trouble leveling to your satisfaction easily.

Terry - Looking great brother. Thats purdy. Good to see you back in the swing. Nice weather is a motivator no? I can't wait until I get to see your work in person. Moreover I look forward to sitting around the fire with you and the misses telling stories.

A minor highjack here, I'm so excited I wanted to share. Looks like the shop and the farm will be built this summer/fall in OK. Come early spring we will be in DFW area for about 4-6 weeks setting up the first farm for vets, then Ohio, then Iowa, then Richland WA. More firm dates later this year but would love to have any of you CLACers join in the fun and of course you will all be welcome to come by the place and use the shop for anything you need and stay as long as you like. Someone will always be there even if we are not.

Good Afternoon, Gordon, I tried to make the break over at the top of the ramp as smooth as possible, I think I succeeded. Frank, That's one of the things that I have to look over, and maybe plan for. Jay, no problem, glad that your plans are coming together for the farms, sounds exciting. The warm weather is certainly is a welcome addition. DT39 might be right about the storm shelter. Been working on the wall separating the garage and cabin and glad to say the luan is up, and the switches are in.

Terry,


Must be exciting every time you go out there. What color does Eleanor plan to paint the living area? With every step you make, it gets closer and closer. When you put the last thing up and you think, "that's it, it's done" (for now at least) I think will be great for you.


Looks good, Lynne

Good Morning, Lynne, It is very relaxing for me to be working on the TH, thinking about what needs to be done and how to do it, if I didn't have it to do I would be doing something else, just like most people here, so many projects so little time. Eleanor, has decided on a light tan with high lights in the paint like she did in the garage section. The big thing for me is to learn to slow down, I get in my head to do something and I have to complete it almost at all cost, today I am a little stiff and sore from yesterday so have to back away a little till I can get going. I forgot to include the rear clearance lights that I installed last night. Have a great day all.

Good Morning Terry,
Looks good, now its Eleanor's turn to work her magic with the paint. I agree with the slow down and quit trying to get everything done at once. I have finally almost got there, but still not quite, lol.
Frank

Looking reall good Terry... Have you condidered bathroom safe wallpapers? They come in a variety of subtle patterns and would hang onto that Luan pretty well... Otherwise you may find yourself using Killz primer for a couple of coats.. I have found that there are dyes and adhesives in Luan that tend to bleed through paint..
But that might just have been the stuff I was working with..
I do tend to use a good high-end paint from Behr or Sherwin Williams store..

Frank, my biggest problem is I worked two jobs most of my life, then would come home and do stuff in the shop here, now that I retired all I have is the stuff to do here, but body wise, (mine) it just isn't up to speed. Yup, I got Eleanor thinking about getting in there and finishing up the garage area paint, then I can do the ceiling panels, and the big stuff in the garage will be done. still will have to build cabinets ect. Randy, I know very little about wallpaper ect. I leave that up to Eleanor, but I know she has been experimenting with different paint and "stuff". Early on she was thinking about wallpaper and changed her mind, not sure why, but the base paint she has been using has primer in it already and it has seemed to work. of course she uses several layers of texture so maybe that does it? We have got our paint from Home Depot.

Terry,
I understand about the body not being up for the rigors like it used to be. I too worked 2 and 3 jobs and then come home and do things. The hard part is to do what the body allows and then take a rest before going back at it. I am getting better at it, but still forget sometimes when I have a project going on.
Frank

Frank, getting this knee replaced is teaching me to take breaks, at least some short ones, I come inside set down, check my emails ect. then go back at it.

There you go, I learned when I broke my wrist, had to work one handed, and it was a bear, but taught me how to be patient and take it slow and easy.

What is patience? Unfamiliar with that word.
