Don't have the time anymore to fuss over my car and take it to the Carshows like I use to, but I do try to make it to closer ones on my bike and check them out. Here'* me with an original 1st year Bonneville. I seriously offered the guy $20k for it to my wifes squeal. She was a bit relieved when he replied, "Offer me 50 and I'll try to act interested" The car is all matching numbers, totally rebuilt.

I'm also a Structural Firefighter and Rescue Tech with my town'* Fire Dept. I don't ever have my cam when we "work" but did take it once this year for a controlled burn of an old house. Just happened to be a Dirt Bike Track next door and got a couple extra shots.



















Always find the time to make it to all the County Fairs in a 100 mile radius, Nothing like washing the diesel grit out of your throat with an ice cold beer, Nothin.

Couple more things that take alot of my time. I cut all my all my own firewood from trees on and around my property. One of my favorite things is to drop a 1001-150 foot high tree thats got disease and bring it home. Sheer awesomeness watching i come down crashing and often bounce off the ground.








I hunt all I can in the fall/winter, here'* my partner in crime... Wild Bill. My favorite weapons are a new Browning .243 Lever Action and a very old original White Tail II Compound bow. They make them alot slicker these days, but mine kills them dead just as good today as it did new 25 years ago.




Our version of a tree stand.



Now this is a "Mancave" Our hunting cabin.

LOL, I have 4 of my own, 9 more through remarrying a couple times that included kids, and about 2 dozen more here around the Lake. All the kids like to go play with "Pappa John".

Stealth, you better change that to just work, work. By the looks of the time, and times you are logged in, you ain't working that hard Bud.

Ya, I wander away and leave alot up and running. I never allow hibernate anymore. Sometimes it doesn't wake up smoothly and I hate to just power off to reload the OS.
