Well it was yesterday and I had to watch my daughter from my office PC.

Runs again late tomorrow afternoon. Probably head out in the morning and spend the next couple of days there.

Back home Friday for dirtbike race on Saturday.

Had a rough one with the first houseboat adventure in awhile. Docking the boat in a cove and the anchor line starboard breaks loose rear go left, over correct, line under boat, wraps in prop, tension on rear cleat,, breaks gimble housing. First time in lake havasu houseboat history. WINNING! LOL. making the best of shitty situation. This is before we got towed in. Was great while it lasted! Props to Gary and Chad very legit and treating us awesome in a bad sitch.

Just when I thought I've heard them all!!! That's a bummer and like I said never in over 40 years of working on them had I heard that before!! Damn

Working on another board, this board is actually going for sale on RDP when I finish it.

Word of mouth got around and now there's a waiting list. I'm actually out of wood, so I have to goto the lumber store to restock. That's where all of the work happens, I have to physically mill all of the wood down. Hopefully the lumber store has stocked up on some of the other types of wood I want to use. I want to start using purple heart, and some other exotics, but they haven't been able to get it.

Don’t know how you do it. That’s a brutal flight. Here’s the last 30 seconds of our “warning” yesterday. Basically the gate agent warning if you don’t have your mask on correctly during boarding they’ll pull you aside and wait til the end. Southwest used to be so good. They’re a bunch of dicks now. Look for every opportunity not to serve drinks/snacks. Snipe at you before and during the flight.

Today’s flight was the best that I have had in a year. I had a few things that I do to make it better. M&Ms, beef jerky and water, I always sit in a few seats only and within a row of the lav. I drink so much liquid that I am in the lav every 45 minutes. That way I am able to lower my mask. That is a crazy video of your flight. Next time I see you I will give you my discussion with the flight attendant about the mask that I had. Ended up have a gate agent come on and talk to me about my frame of mind. LOL

Currently working at Tokyo stadium in Japan bringing team USA on to the field for the opening ceremonies for the 2021 Olympic Games. My buddy and I shot the whole entrance on the field. It was pretty gnarly. You can see it Friday evening when it airs. I’m a camera tech and I’m at the very bottom left in this pic. I’ll be working the games over the next couple of weeks.

What a great sunset. How do you like being out on the Westside? How do you spend your day? Do you hang at the lagoons all day or do you go drive everywhere?I always wonder since it is so far from everything and the general area is not so much tourist oriented..
We love it here because it is much less touristy than other places. We did skip up to North Shore the other day for some lunch, drinks, and shopping, but have been spending our time mostly just hanging out here and relaxing. We've done all the touristy stuff over the many years that we've been coming here, so there isn't much desire to do all of that again. Lazy mornings with a late brunch on the lanai, walk to the coves to swim and chill, and then happy hour cocktails have been the schedule that works for us. A much needed break from our typical busy life 😊

That is great that you know the difference and like it. I always wonder who it is that likes it out there. I’d hate to hear that someone didn’t know and went out there and hated it.

Doin your typical redneck in mizzoura stuff. Headed to the river to meet up with my river family at the sand bar. Catching a ride in the boat I bought my buddy for a wedding present. Water is WAY down right now

Cool little camper. What is it? Don’t think I’ve ever seen one. Is it on an Astro chassis? Hard to tell from the angle of the picture. Thanks
Good eye, yup on an Astro chassis alright..... a neighbor found it somewhere and takes his kids up to mountains camping. He's a teacher and during covid while teaching classes remotely "Lil Debbie" was his quiet study away from noise of young kids at home. Things got just about everything he needs for overnights with family.
