Anyone that knows me, knows that I am a Vintage Airstream Podcast super fan. I have been honored with being on the show numerous times. I had a hard drive crash a few months ago and lost everything including the old shows on my I Tunes. Tim Shepard had to drop the first 50 shows from the server due to the tremendous band width it was taking up. So the first 50 episodes were lost to me. But now Tim, Rob, and Colin have put the first 30 on disc. There are 10 episodes per disc and each disc is a measly $10 donation. I suggest donating double per disc to mess up the whole system.
To get your own set go to www.thevap.com. Make a donation and they will come to you promptly. Like I said, buck the system and donate a double contribution per disc. Maybe Tim will be kind enough to release the next set sooner that way. He has put these out in super high sound quality, and they are actually better than the original podcasts were. Seriously folks, this is a must have item. You don't have to donate double(but should). Just make a donation and get your own.
Now for something totally different... A year ago there was a mountain of mulch between Anna and the road.
I had to spread it before any work could begin. Well this year here is the mountain.
Okay, okay, it is not a mountain, but it is about a cord of rock maple, and I spent the entire day yesterday cutting and splitting it. I have been splitting wood by hand like this for years. As a younger man I was able to produce three times this much in a day. This is a part of life most people down South have no concept of. Cutting, splitting, and stacking of firewood to keep warm. Between my house and shop, I burn about five cords per season. For those unfamiliar, a cord is 4 x 4 x 8. What you see here is very prime burning. It should keep us warm for about a month.
Dummying up a dummy knob - Door was originally drilled for a Kwik-set knob Baldwin has a different definition. A few more shims with glue and we'll be all set.
