@Nordie that is money! What are the dimensions?

Y’all ever heard of a board game called Biñho? Met one of the owners a while back and picked up a board for fun. local company too.

This board is pretty large its rough dimensions are 12" by 21" and 1" thick. I don't really dimension my boards, what they end up is what they end up. I guess I could, but I try to make them as large as I can.

Fack this thing is badass! You had a chance to run it hard yet? If so did the changes make it faster?
Yeah we got after it pretty good about a month ago in Parker. Throttle response is much better than before. Pulls really hard on the big end.

My favorite fishing spot (that I am willing to discuss, at least) is in that picture! Down there by the island, far right in the picture.

This peach of a Brown was pulled out right there.
What lake?

Colorado River! Horseshoe Bend/Lee's Ferry, specifically. You can see the island more clearly here. Pretty amazing stretch of fly fishing water! Actually right below Glen Canyon Dam, which holds up Lake Powell.

Actually, I mean that it's horrible fishing! Waste of time! 👍🏼 No trophy fish to be found there. I actually don't mind telling people that there's good fishing to be had here. It takes a lot of work! And very remote. So, anyone that would be willing to put in the work to get there and fish it, likely already knows about it. 🤷🏽‍♂️

These sculptures are made with various chain saws ? Damn, those are amazing 👍 👍 👍 Where's this event ?
Yes all done with chainsaws. It is in Reedsport, Or. Used to go every years with my dad on father's day until he passed. Havent been in probably 8yrs. We took my wife's dad today. I didn't get any pics of them working as they were all finishing up today. It's a 4 day event.

I'd be afraid to go there, I know I'd end up spending some $$$ and driving home with a bed full of sculptures. Thanks for sharing 👍

We bought these turtles there 8yrs ago. At the auction they do the end of each day. They have a speed competition everyday and they get 2 hours to carve something and then they auction them off at the end of the day.

The wife wanted this from the auction today. Our top price was going to be $350, her dad offered that he wanted to buy it for her. We had to make him stop bidding at $850 it sold $900.

Chainsaw festival in Reedsport???? It was a yearly outing for our Corvette club. Have three or four carvings from the show down here now and NONE are bears.
Yep!! Was always a yearly thing for us too till my dad passed. First I've been in 8yrs and they have sure stepped their game up.

The crab won. It's about 5' tall and 10' wide and the detail is amazing. Sold yesterday for $8000

Water truck is low on power. Found the problem. That's not red dye. That's dirt, rust, and water.
