The trip is probably off for me now. Have daughters wedding in July, and getting natural gas hooked up to my house might be back on line, but need to come up with some $$ for that. Figure that will pay off in the future when my body is too abused to cut firewood for the outside wood boiler.

Looks like it’s set for the third weekend in May, if anyone is still interested in coming.


Bump for Shade.

Have a neighbor who is on the Board of Directors of a electric coop.

He showed me a few pictures of standby "quick start" (up and running with 15 minutes when needed) generators. Natural gas, V12 with twin turbo chargers of which each were 4 1/2 feet tall. Plenty big engines.

May the 17,18, and 19.

Work has had me pretty wrapped up until now. Got some breathing room now as some big projects are clearing. Whew.

Got plenty of room for camping or if you want to bring a camper I have a couple spots for hookups.

I’m starting to clean out the shop so we might have some room.
