Guy! If this picture is any indication, it was indeed you that we saw on Friday, Westbound on 64.

I thought that was you in your pickup... a couple of bikes loaded in the back.

Yes??

Edit: If you honked, my apologies for not waving, i.e., saluting - earplugs. But when the truck passed by, I thought, "That looks like Pete."

Congrats on finishing the 500 without incident. The doc will never know.........

I'm not sure if Lacy's is a pay and take or not. I know they used to allow it. NOt sure about it anymore.

If you call Chesterfield, ask for Aubrey. He's semi-retired, but he is "da man!"

If you call Lacy... you already know who to ask for!

Wire about pulled all the way to the compressor. Have about 15 more studs to drill through and we're there. Do need to pick up a 6-pack of 3/4" boring bits. Keep hitting siding nails that are buried in the studs. The bits don't last too long once you hit one.

There is a new one (1 yr old) up in Massaponax, VA, think it's call Pick and Pay, they charge $3 to get in, it used to be Bank's Junk Yard, but when the old man died the kids decided they could make more money in the illeagal smokes business (buy in NC & VA and sell in NYC). The Federalies caught them 2 yrs ago and they are spending 15 - 20 yrs in the big house

Get a 3/4" x 16" long augar bit, leave them paddle bits alone. A 3/4" augar bit being driven by a good size 1/2" drill will pull the nails out rather than dulling the bit and they are eazy to sharpen and last forever. This is coming from an old Romex monkey before I started getting lazy and started counting cinder blocks, bending pipe on the ground and throwing it up to my helpers on the scaffold.

Thought about that, but didn't feel like spending the bux for a 1/2" drill..... today.

You know, when it's below 50* your jacket is much warmer with the vents zipped closed.



Yeah, I was only about 10 miles from home before I finally realized they were open.



It was nice to get out for awhile today. Weather was nice once I closed the vents. Traffic wasn't too bad on the back roads of Powhatan, Goochland, Hanover and Louisa.
