Rod, seems to me Chris has the beer supply logistics worked out.
Think red shirts, man - starched red shirts & deal him cards he doesn't already hold. Besides that, there's no telling how far this hurricane damage is going to drive up the price of beer.

I grind all the tracks out, BECAUSE I can't burn the slag out.


Now thats something I agree with I hate grinding also. In my test we could grind the root only. The hot pass to cap we used a power brush only.

I'm also a lazy SOB Rod. Cutter is right, I have a refrigerator in the garage that is full, (most of the time), of different flavors of hops and barley.

If you make a trip out here, I'll let my superintendent know that I have an apprentice that wants to learn. All of his jobs right now are plastic, and I'm melting the stuff together. I used to have hair that ran down my back until this spring. I took some clippers to it myself, and gave myself a military buzz. Don't know if I can get rid of the bibs though.

Never give up the bibs! I use to catch a lot of sheet for wearing the white Carhart bibs. Hey they were cheaper than the others, and what difference does it make what color they are, with all the grease we put up with! In the summer I would go through 3-pairs a week . We had to have 2-separate washing machines and dryers. That hammer grease will wreak havoc on anything it touches . Can’t tell in this picture that I’m wearing bibs, because of the life jacket, but they are bibs .

I never said that I haven't worn starched shirts, just that I don't currently do it.
