Wondered just the other day where you were hanging out lately. Hadn't heard, but was hoping all ok.

Doing the same job in CO, or get one of those higher up responsibilities?

Different job, same pay - maybe a little bit more.  Only been here three weeks so still figuring it all out.  Love the house and area, seen two big bucks locking horns this morning right off the deck.  Four bucks and about 10 does in the group - they seem to come through every other day (but they were here yesterday too..  Had about 50 elk just down the road, still in the neighborhood too this morning; had about 3" of snow overnight so they seem to be pretty active today.  Got one doe with floppy ears, dangdest thing I ever seen.  Looks like a cross between a mule deer and a goat.  I have some pictures of it so will try and post soon.

Howdy y'all. I have been disappeared for quite a while now. I am glad to see a lot of the same group of folks are still around. I haven't done a lot in the woods or at the mill in a couple of years. I dug the mill out of the  mothballs the other day when someone asked me to saw a bunch of board and batten siding. Once a few folks found out the mill was running again, I started getting calls for lumber. I am looking forward to participating in the forum again. This has always been such a great place and a great bunch of folks.

Well...been gone awhile, I forget when it was I dropped off here, but it has been awhile. I retired from the Navy in 2011, wound up 60 percent disabled, started a tree service, developed bad tendonitis and could not run a chainsaw for more than a few minutes, much less climb...shut the business down and went broke for awhile, got a job in a shipyard, and have not touched the sawmill for a year or two. (that is the part that sucks.)
Couple years ago, my family got involved with a local equine program, and I dicovered a talent for training horses, so now my big pastime is taking care of horses, and teaching young kids and adults to ride and train wild horses.
We have a little bluegrass band that is part of the program, so in January I started picking banjo..I wind up on stage a couple times a month now..
And that is where it reboots a little..been missing the mill, and dropping trees anyhow....

I nagged my wife to start playing mandolin for the band..she took to it like a duck to water...few weeks later, "Honey, would you build me a steam box?"
Umm..what for?
"I want to build a mandolin."
ooooook...
That led to ordering a bunch of books on how to not ever get around to building an instrument.

soo..I am about halfway done with a banjo built with wood sawed from hurricane Irene...
yesterday I was aked by two different people within an hour to make them instruments...

Fired up the chainsaw last week and dropped a pine in the front yard...

Was eyeballing the mill yesterday...

I see WM has made some interesting new log dogs for the lt-15...I might have to have a set...

Good to see you back on the forum, Zopi.

Looks like you have enough to keep yourself busy.

Sure sounds like you're having fun, or at least staying very busy trying to.  Any pictures of the instrument builds, or did I miss them some where else?

I will have to upload some pictures..the banjo is a work in progress, but it is getting to the rubber meets the road stage. Probably going try a dulcimer before I tackle a mandolin.

I am definitely busy.

I really like the sounds that a banjo and a dulcimer produce.

I watch shows like "The Waltons" once in a while and ever so often someone will play the dulcimer.
