Update

Jayson is looking to be production ready by January. The new and improved Spud will have an aluminum frame.
I'm first on the "to get" list. I will be contacting all who have PMed and emailed me and be collecting contact info from those who want to be on "The List". I will update Spud 3's progress here and on Facebook (Tim Mazac) and give a unit price as soon as we figure it out. Jayson's full sized teardrops are SWEET, so I'm confident the new and improved Spud will shine.

Faceless gimp

Seems my patent lawyer has immortalized me as the faceless gimp in my NPU patent application.

Cool wet bar. I don't entertain much, so a burger and brew will do.

Sometimes things "retro" can be improved upon.



I remember this place, over fifty years back. Dad bought a cut and polished thunder-egg here and proudly shared it with Uncle Loyd, chief of police in Burns. Loyd laughed at dad's paying five bucks for a rock and said he could take us to where they could be dug up like spuds. The next day we spent a couple hours bouncing along and eating dust in a Willys Overland. We brought back a half filled ash can of golf to soft ball sized geodes. When we got home to Cal., dad bought a rock saw and started cutting. When he found some with agate or amethyst inside he was hooked, became a rock-hound. It was great. He bought a jeep. Every other weekend we would grind out onto the Mojave following a hand drawn map picked up at a rock-swap-meet or printed in a rock-hound publication and hunt treasure. As he wasted away in bed out at the VA hospital years later, he was still working stone, chipping bits of the fire from precious opals and dropping them into little glass bulbs filled with glycerin, making earrings.

Mom married a jerk afterwards. We moved to Florida, but before we left I had all dads rocks, that were to be left behind, hauled over to my best friend's house; 1/4 ton of childhood treasures. We spread them through his pop's well manicured flowerbeds and around his fish pond. I kept all the petrified sharks's teeth and arrowheads.

dude,I was reading about your rock quest with your dad,man I love hearin them old stories from back then.I wish I was not born so late as I feel i really missed out on what America once was.

Yes, trailrider383, this is still on. Sorry for the late reply, hadn't visited back to this thread in a long time. Having not experienced bringing a new product in to production, Jason and I were a bit optimistic with our projections. Again, sorry.

Things always seem to take more time. On the forth of July I met a most remarkable man from Australia who has worked six years at enabling his wife, paralyzed from the chest down in a motorcycle accident, to ride again. She rode up with her feet strapped to a KTM with two front wheels that track with the rear wheel. Just like riding a bike. He developed a switch-activated means of locking the cantilevering front end to turn the hybrid into a trike when stopped so that one can take their hands off the bars.

Here is their trip thread:.




I met this remarkable couple because I'm listed here on tent space. If you're a bit of a recluse, like me, it's a cool way to meet new fellow riders in the comfortable surroundings of your own home.
