Has to be some outside influence to Skrogg's warped sense of humour.
No evidence of it in that pic tho.
Just sniffing glue like the rest of us I guess.
LOL! what are you tryn to say? and the room looks worse now that I have all my planes in there.
I did throw out all that CAT cable and most of the wings.

Oh and coo I pawned my bong for beer and lottery tickets.

Hot, humid Central Georgia, not a problem. I did put a thermostat controled exaust fan in the window of the back wall. It still gets hot out there, but nowhere near hot enough to do any damage.

Best Regards,
Nut

I actually built a room onto my house for the purpose of my hobbies. Now I didnt have much choice when she decided to bring her hobby out there but I could say mine was staying in the house.

Oh yea, my wife gave me 10k to build the additional garage/work shop so she could park her car in the garage on the house. Our 19th anniversery is today.

My Radios, Charges, and batteries will stay in the house. I'm not worried about the winter months.

Should I put my foot down and keep my airplanes in the house and sleep on the couch.

David
Yes definitely put your foot down. I never understand why men have to let their wives run them, are we not men anymore?

Well Doc you are either not married or have not been married very long. I would rather not put my foot down and be upset for a short time than put my foot down and her be upset for a long time.

Upset for a long time will be about right. Wifes never forget anything. "Honey do you remember when you messed up in 1987"

No kidding. I think it's a genetic trait of the female. She still reminds me of what I did 8 years ago - and I don't even remember what it was!

David,

Just down the road from you in Gilbert (as you know). Had my planes in my garage all summer so far, no problems. And I have it all, GWS foamies, EPP, FFF, solite covered balsa, etc. The trick is to keep them from being exposed directly to sunlight. My garage has no windows, so no problem there.

I've climbed into the van that is parked in there, and had the temp read as high as 110* (yes guys, that's 110* not only in the shade, but also inside an enclosure with only 2 sides directly exposed to the heat!).

Pat I was hoping someone replied to me from my neck of the woods. BTW I live on Higley and Williams field road.

Ok guys putting my foot down to my wife is not an option. I will be moving my airplanes in the Garage tonight. A happy wife is a happy home.
