I gotcha. Maybe some interior fit out?

Is your trip planned for the Spring?

No trips planned. Just gonna keep working on it until done.

Interior fitout is winter work. Have to get the heater installed first.

Cool to see the pieces all together, very shiny, too. I bet you were glad to see the pieces fit properly!

I made 8" drift bolts so the cabin would lower onto the bolt holes in the beams correctly. They worked well and the guys understood how they were to work. A little scary for hands to get crushed is all. I think I will revise them and make them all about 2" different, so we make the first one, then the next.

Sorry to hear about the recurring pains; I remember that you had a brush with (might have been) Covid. Look after yourself.

Dan congratulations that she is finally together. Take it easy and don't work to hard as to aggravate your back. One step at a time and you will get her done. :D :D :D

Signing off to fish for a week with an old man.

My uncle Jim bought my mama shoes when she was 16. This is his payback. He is 93 and a general pain in the ass. But he likes fishin and so do I.

Here is some porn for you guys.
