Amen, Bob.  Its why I've talked to my kids like they were adults since they were about 4-5 years old.  I remember when my oldest brought home "celebrate China week" materials from school when she was about 6.  I said, lets talk about china.  Forced prison labor, communism, forced abortion, currency manipulation, human rights and environmental violations...

Wife about had a  coronary over that discussion....

Glad you made it home safe and enjoyed the trip!  :likebutton:
Is that the mileage you expected?  That was about what I averaged with my dually until I deleted it..

Glad you had a good trip.

Actually we are commanded to obey the law of man up to the point until it conflicts with God?s law. And then we are to disobey and deal with the consequences

Not sure The Lord wants us to light fireworks in disobedience to the law. :wink

Charles, you need your own page. "Texas Resort Retreat" would be a lot better page name than having it posted inside the hide site page.

Bob it?s like most things in life.  When women get involved, things get a lot more complicated.  And expensive.

Love sodium. We got to play with it in organize chemistry lab.

A tight container with a few small holes in it.  About a pound of sodium and toss it in a koi pond and walk away.  Some kids are such hoodlums.

Got the casita swept out and ready and built my end wall in the container.


 

Ordered a mini split for the shipping container. Fredrich 9000 btu. About double what it needs but hard to find a 6000.  The variable speed should make it workable

Then it?s on to running electrical to the container. Led lights , outlets , cat 6,

I?ll weld up the end doors so the only way in is through the man door.

Polite neighbors would obey the law and not lit fireworks where it?s not legal. That aggravates me to no end. Along with riding four wheelers on city streets. One more reason to go to the country. I guess if I?m not there it won?t aggravate me. How does one raise their kids to obey the law if they selectively decide which ones to obey?  I guess it?s kind of like politicians.

So after a day of hot hard work in the shop I get a call at 7:30 from the insulator that he?s freed up and coming at 8 am tomorrow.  Great, had to go do some clean up and a bit of work to get ready. Will get up at first light and finish.

Well. In the shop in 96 degree heat and finished compounding the dually and then put a coat of wax on it.

That is a lot of real estate to work.

But the result is pretty nice.  On to the interior tomorrow. Of course it?s raining and predicted to rain all weekend.

Guess it stays in the shop for a while.

Bob I not only follow the law I respect my neighbors. We are in the country and it?s entirely legal. And we were done by 10pm. 

But just in case there were stray dogs or other nefarious creatures I was carrying my G23 and an extra mag.

Armed neighbors are polite neighbors.

So official update.

Foam insulation guy came Friday for an estimate.  Now I?m on the schedule in about 2 weeks. This house and shipping container will be tight. Fortunately I?ll be running mini splits that can dehumidify

Open cell inside and a 2 inch layer of closed cell underneath

Then I?ll work on the AC and pause the guest house project and finish the inside of the shipping container.  Gotta get all my reloading equipment from my BIL and off load some long term storage stuff from the main house.

Got gravel delivered and spread in anticipation of heavy rain... and then it passed us by.




Last night met up with a buddy from Kansas who had picked up a LB7 motor I plan to rebuild.

Nothing says red neck like a lifted old red truck with a motor in the back and a ton of fireworks in the back seat

I remember when she called me to argue for the installation of a theater room! (A FREAKIN THEATER ROOM!!!)
All the while I was living in a broom closet, or more accurately, some stinky, dusty, hot helicopter cockpit somewhere.

So I rolled on it and we had a theater theng installed.
That?s cause the missus wanted to watch Tom cruise in top gun and dream she married a fighter pilot.....

You know, a sequel is in the making

Happy Independence Day. Think about that next April 15th

Ken. I walked along side the belly dump as he rolled forward and was able to work the external control for the bottom gate to release the amount of material I wanted.  I wound up with a  nice mound of material about 200 ft long.  That allowed me to work the FEL back dragging with the floating bucket to spread it. Back and to the left and back and to the right and I was able to make a fairly neat job of it.  Have a few thin spots I?ll get with the next load and finish on out to the road.

Bobby. I now know why they charge so much to detail. I?m working a few panels at a time and it?s taking forever.

Nate if that?s a ?man bun?, ask my daughters what I think of those. Told them if they ever brought home a guy with a man bun I?d cut it off.

Koot, looks like you need a little more clay bar lube. Seems to be leaving a little behind.

Well here?s the first load. 24 tons limestone.

Half ton not getting much love. Had to take it back to the clear bra shop to have the bumper redone as the area around the fog light was peeling up. He was so cool about it he clayed, polished and ceramic coated the paint for free.

It?s sitting at the house while the other two are at the weekend place.

When I?m done wit the dually I have nano coatings for the glass, rubber, fabric and leather to put on it.

Well started claying the dually. OMG was it in dire need. Clay was sticking and it felt like sandpaper.  The clay I?m using is white and it looked black/grey when done. Clayed one rear quarter and a door and a couple of windows before taking a break for pool time and a whiskey. It?s going to look awesome when finished.  My wife bet me that I would not want to sell it when I get done. LOL.

I need a bigger shop so I can park a dozen trucks.  Did I mention I love trucks??  I don?t think I?ll ever drive a car again.

Mike, what was the exact pill you took?

Dave/Ken, I will likely get rid of it in the next few months.  Plan to clay/polish and wax and replace the windsheild as there is a large impact damage spot and re balance the front tires.

I already have 2 peoples in line and the line will likly get longer, but going rate with all the mods seems to be $43K

If not, then that gives me an excuse to keep it.....
