when I was young

When I was in college I was accepted into the peace corps. I was going to south America to work with building and figuring out irrigation systems.

I was always handy .. (my father started me off with projects). Some thing I'm hoping to pass down to my son. My wife's father fixed everything with a hammer and if that didn't work..he would find a bigger hammer. Not a solution to every fix.

Passing the knowledge along. I have always asked a lot of questions to learn from others. I just left the welder to make a barn door rail for me. The retail was $400 at the stores. This one is going to cost me $100 and I get to prime / paint or I could heat it up and dip it in oil .. and shine it up.

I haven't done much of the building .. but a MC is something you leave behind for you kids.

I have projects planned .. and I figure 2 per year. What am I going to do with all these rebuilt projects. Keep some, sell some .. look at them brag about them and ride them.
