cool, maybe those bums that took over my table Saturday can have their own....

Just kidding, a few extra tables will come in handy.

Forest, you and Jenny can get rid of that school desk and sit at the big table.

Does anyone remember when Robert is due back?

All,

I too am enjoying the sun and fun of Thailand.... NOT,

18hr days + 1 hr transit each way, sleep is at a premium and connectivity at the site is not an option...

that being said,

Yes they did drop off the old armory tables, they mentioned this when I spoke with them on Monday.. and again on tuesday. glad to see they made it to the site alongwith the additional barrels.

The last of the parts/bolts were to be delivered today to the Brig..so I will try to follow up tomorrow.

All I will ask is that you all keep in mind that the tand is being built, I have not forgotten about it or you all.

we are dependent on others that we have no direct control over. these same people are doing this as a favor, so other projects that are operational in nature may/ will take priority..

it was mentioned that we could take the tables, place them together and use them as a temporary stand..... just be careful, the last thing we need is someone doing a header...

please ensure the track stays clean and organized and we all follow the rules posted on the first page of this thread...

the track is ours, but can be taken away/closed in a heartbeat if it becomes an eyesore or safety hazard....

R

The tables are large 4x8, looks like they need some work, I'll bring up some tools Sat afternoon to salvage what we can.

Think we have enough barrels...I'll cut off the tops and let 'em fill up with water...

Genny is there ready to go with gas. She just needs a good pull with the choke and then she purrs like a kitten at run setting. Change the oil and cleaned the tank out and put a new fuel filter on. Make sure the silver toggle switch is in the on (toward the back) position before starting. When done put the yellow trailer back on top to keep the water out....

thanks for all the work on the genny, Jon "you da man"

Let's look at cutting a couple of barrels down, flipping them over as steps up to the tables. If we can get a 2 or 3 of them stable. Or maybe use the barrels to sturdy up the tables.

Yeah, this weather is crap, but on a brighter note, take a look at this:
