    The KBC sticker on the fridge says you have good taste in beer, the beer in the fridge says otherwise.

    We're between Exmoor and Dartmore, near Great Torrington. I've registered the domain for the campsite but it'll be a little while before anything is up and running. Probably have a blog at the address over the next year as we get the place sorted out and then hope to open for Summer 2014.

    Look forward to seeing you, there'll be discounts for Tossers and ADVriders :)

    :rofl I was waiting for a comment like that. Surprised it took this long. It's a cheaper way to serve the masses. And you would be surprised how many people will not drink real beer.

    Now if you could please deliver a 1/2 barrel of Old Ore Dock down to southern Michigan I would appreciate it. :deal

    Forget that nonsense if your friends complain about what type of FREE BEER you provide then its time to find some new friends :freaky. But on the other hand you don't want your friends drinking all of your good beer... hmmm

    All these pics are giving me serious shop envy. I'm becoming a homeowner for the first time at the end of this month and I'm really looking forward to moving out of my ramshackle rental garage and into my 21x20 concrete block palace. Not huge, but it'll be all miiiiine. Well, except for the half that's earmarked for the better half's car... :ear

    How I made the gate? You give me way too much credit. I hired a fence company. They did a great job, nice fence, good looking, solid construction. One of their guys welded it up in the backyard.

    I know you asked about that before - I promise I'll go get some closeup pics to give you an idea about how it was done. I went out there once to do that and couldn't get meaningful shots, but I'll give it another go.

    I almost forgot - the piece de resistance.

    See the hole in the unfinished board in the wall behind the GS, just above and to the right of the mirror?

    Living 3 blocks from there is the only way I could deal with the longer winters you put up with. :D If you ever come down to southern Michigan I might take you up on the offer. It is to bad they do not distribute by the barrel down here. We can only get a few varieties in the cans.


    I have perfect friends. They chip in for the kegs but will not drink the good stuff. :lol3

    The old-school ice axe is a nice touch.
