    There was a bit of a cool breeze out there today so I stopped by the pond to warm up in the sun on these rocks like an old reptile...or something. :lol3

    It felt good to get out in the sunshine for a little while after having a cold wet week at work.

    Cool pics of the old mill.

    At first, I was confused by the G-town reference, since I had never seen that mill in Greenville. Then I realized that there's a G-town closer to you.

    The clue was in the closeup of the tower.

    Thanks! :wave

    That mill is one of the largest by square footage under one roof in the US, in the 70s and 80s it was run by Firestone,I spotted rail cars at that place which ment shoving them 3 blocks down the middle of a road,across a 6 lane highway a through the back yards of a couple of houses without snatching the laundry off the cloth line, that happened to often. Guess who got to ride the end of the first car? Hated that place.

    :wave Thanks all!
    Sorry for any bad memories!:lol3

    Lady D...Lycan? as in Werewolf kinda critter? :huh (I didn't notice him...he could have got me! :uhoh)

    Crappy weather this 'weekend' (today and tomorrow) and too cold and damp to feel like working in the shed. Guess I'll just drink some more coffee and get all wired up. [​IMG]


    I recently picked up one of those little video cameras that look like a keychain remote. Need some nicer weather so I can try mounting it atop a helmet or something....have already tried a few silly things like the brim of a baseball cap, atop an rc car, air rifle scope and even a home made glider....but I won't bore you with those here. :rofl

    ...well maybe just one short flight....

    Well the rain dissipated for the afternoon so I got a couple of helmetcam tests in after all. :ricky

    Took a couple of tries to get it aimed half way right and it still needs some tweaking. Here's a short clip of a gravel loop within a mile of my house...
