That's just wrong.

Wrong, wrong, wrong.

Monday Ride?

I have to run up to Graves Mountain Lodge on Monday to do a quick range evaluation and take a few pics.

I was thinking about leaving there and heading up to Big Meadows Lodge, and then down the Skyline Drive to Afton before heading back home to Powhatan, via Rt 6.

Anybody interested in coming along for the ride? I will likely hit the road by 7am at the latest, and plan on being back to Powhatan by 3 or 4.

(If the line of thunderstorms come in as it looks like they may, I will not ride.)

Garage Floor Pictures

Hey Jimmy.. Finally got some pictures of my epoxy coating I put on the floor. I'm real happy with it but if you plan on doing any heavy work (ie. motor/transmission installs, old car rebuilds, ect ect..) I don't believe this would hold up. But for what I am going to use it for I think it will work out real well.

That looks really good Graham.

I'm told that to get epoxy that will hold up under the load of rebuilds, that you must go to the really high end stuff. I'm not willing to pay that price. I think I'm just going to leave it as it is.

Once I get my next shop built (a few years out), I'll race deck or put a laminate over this one.

I know.. the color looks.. well not so good. My wife was helping and the color sample was darker. I may end up painting over it. It does help to brighten things up since there aren't any windows.

It will look better too once I get a bunch of junk in there, some neons on the wall, and well a sweet looking GS.

Awesome looking floor for sure!

After my tractor spilled its guts on my newly built detached garage floor I decided (well it decided-the garage that is) that the floor would take on the look of something seen at the Museum of Contemporary Art...

hey those williamsburg ppl are playing tag

I just saw that there is now a williamsburg tag-o-rama ripped off from our now comatose tag. They even admit it since many of the players seem to be ones that frequented our very own TOR.

Well, best wishes to them. Should we warn them though?

--Edit-- Oh wait, MOB already found them. --Edit--
