    First dinner, at the end of a LONG day, to start an epic trip.

    I left NC this morning on a trip that’s going to take me through central WA, SLC, LV, and back home some time in the middle of November- 22 states in total, in six weeks. I’ve got to be in Fon Du Lac, WI tomorrow, and probably should have cut the drive somewhere in IN, but I had the opportunity...

    Scragglebeard hit my truck.

    So, I was heading into Charlotte, coming up from the south, this morning, and saw a stoppage ahead. The funneling of slowed traffic put me into the far left lane, and finally at a complete stop. A second or two after I stopped, somebody behind me failed to fully complete the complicated...

    Can you tell what’s going on here...

    I just snapped this pic on my back deck, and I find it fascinating.

    Goat Ballz!!

    Buddy slaughtered some goats today, and he sent me home with a freezer full of meat. Over the beers and blood, we talked ourselves into saving the testicles, and I’m running guinea pig on cooking one. The other cut is a hunk of back strap, in case the testicle is terrible. Report to follow.

    Ryobi ONE+ Tool Price Hack

    Ryobi is running a deal where, if you buy a 2x 3Ah battery kit for $99 (normally $149), you get a free tool. The eligible free tool list is damned near the entire catalog (including bigger batteries). I’m pretty good on batteries, but the bearings are going in my 13 year old 6” circular saw. I...

    "Unsweet" Tea

    A twofer rant: Why do I have to order "un sweet tea"? Tea is tea. Tea with ice is iced tea. Tea with sugar is sweet tea. Why do I have to order my drink, specifying that it not have something that it doesn't have anyway? If you order a Gibson, do you have to order a "Fender logo-less Gibson"...

    Eugene Stoner: Inventor of the Wormhole, or “Patient Zero”?

    So, crazy thing; I was hanging out with an old friend of mine, acquaintance of Eugene Stone (RIP (for the second time?)), and former designer for “Reed from Titusville”, today, and I mentioned a discussion I’d had here the other day. It was an otherwise uninteresting conversation amongst...

    Creamtone Kit Inbound

    I finally decided that I couldn’t let the pups on my Faded Blue Jean CP stay uncovered any longer. It seems to be the one Custom Pro that came with zebra BB 2/3s rather than covered ones. I really like the pups and finally got over my analysis-paralysis and decided to cover them rather than...

    A three-sister foursome in the man-cave tonight...

    I think this is the first time I’ve had all three of the sisters together- crazy I haven’t tried earlier, right?!? The 16 Tribute usually hangs out on that stand, ready for a quickie at a moment’s notice. She ain’t the fanciest, but just look at those perky P90s and tell me you wouldn’t romp...

    NGD- LP Custom Pro Faded Blue Jean

    I got the rare opportunity to buy myself a guitar that was way more expensive than I would have ever considered buying- with absolutely no guilt. I had seen a CS LP a couple years back, in a Denim-Burst finish, and it got stuck in my head as “the guitar” that I’d always lust over. When the...

    NGD: 2016 Les Paul Traditional HP

    Picked this up used, but in apparently nearly unplayed condition. I own an Epi Prophecy Custom Plus, which is a great guitar, but I'd been wanting a Gibson and the time was finally right. I had compiled a list in my head of what I thought I wanted my LP to be. I thought it would be either...

    Help Identifying Color

    I know this is not a lot to go on, but I saw a guitar several months ago in a pawn shop, about 9 hours from home, and I will have an opportunity to go back there later this month. I'm trying to figure out what I can about it before I go, since I will only be passing through, so I can narrow...
