Actually Rusty...I didn't want to tell you...but I got sucked up into a tornado a week ago....and I landed a couple days later in a tree in tennessee. But luckily I found a bottle of jack daniels whiskey nearby and drank the whole I'm ok.

checking in for the day

HELLO Mike well did you fine your way over towards Dorthys and the rest of the gang;-)

Glad your still hanging around the boards. I have to amit I realy thought we were history with this one. ALot of the guys has gone elestwear. Maybe they will come back later?

OK here has been my latest projects. On one of my projects some are not happy but that is ok with me everbody is wellcome to what they think and I dont have a problem. About 3 weeks ago I decided I wanted my FFG back that I sold a few years ago. Have allways regetted that one . So I decided to convert my USCG Hamilton to the FFG for the most part it is the same hull. So that is my personal build for now.

The next one was a case that I just got done building for that LST that I did last month and added crew members for him. He is on Vacation and will be back in june . So he brought the ship over to me last week and ask if I could take care of it . So it is done and put way.
Sorry I dont have pictues of it with plactic sides I left the protective flym over it . BUT I did take pictures of it befor I put all of it on. So here is what it looks like . Later I am sure I will have pictures of it with the ship and on display at his home or whear it is going to be. So when I get them I will be sure to post on the board.

I am doing ok for the most part my knee is starting to act up like I did a few months go but at least I know what may be going on. GOOD old aritice Getting old is not fun sometimes;-)

I am suppose to be involve in 2 different meets this weeken both rc related. ONE tank meet for I have a soft shooter 1/16th scale tank that the tank club found out about and now have ask me to join them for the day at a larger show. So if things go as plan I will be at that one on Saturday and suppose be run with the boat club on Sunday. BUT right now I am not about any of it with what is going on with me for the last couple of days.

ONE thing for sure Diane will have a weeken to herself for I will be gone so it will be her and cat and her rambler;-)
Diane is going good working all of the time and racing when she can or has the time .
She allready ask for the tuck for in 2 week for she is going to a track that she like real well and She wants the truck not a big deal to me .

So that is the up dates on us and weather has been grate maybe for few days we may get our Summer ?

OK lets keep this board going if we can

Hey Rusty, I went to to the track on saturday. There was about thirty different people there during the day. My new car has a problem with the carburetor....wants to run wide open fast while the throttle is mostly closed.....very mysterious......but I have a new idea to try on it.

So I ran my old standby and got pummeled and beat up by bigger cars crashing into me at 40 MPH.....but I had some good laps and fun too. The amazing thing was...after one car hit me hard and smashed my pipe and knocked my carburetor loose.....I was able to fix it and went back out for many more fun laps and watched while other guys had some bad wrecks, failures, and setbacks for a change. Some guys were really out for blood it seemed.....but they ended up wrecked themselves.

The track is so perfectly groomed now with high banks on the curves and green grass between the lanes. Super nice main track on one side.....then a really big oval track on the other side of the drivers stand. They rented big lights and ran till after midnite. I left at 11pm.

HEY there sounds like your having fun now since you have found a track to run at. Diane is off now for a wile and during all of the time she was working the weather was nice . NOW she is off and wating for her next job to come up though her temp office she wants to go out and play on the our side track . So guess what has happen Good Old Oregon rain came back in ;-) just her luck again. She may go to the indoor track on wed to play and maybe the out side track on saturday to play or race. That track is Daves rc in wood burn oregon go check it out on there web you would like for it has a nice off road track and big oval.

Myself I was able to get the new one in the pond for a little wile this weeken got a 3 hour brake so the club called me and I went down . She ran good still working on it also took the LST down she did grate.
So that is what is going on ..Looks like were the only 2 left on this board.;-(( Lost track of cave man have not heard much from him in a wile Stamp and the others I have not a clue. OK IF you stay on I will do the same Rusty.
