    The past few weeks I've been busier than a Japanese beaver at work.

    We've been putting together, trying to fill and set up for a 300 person, one day seminar for some our customers. It all goes off tomorrow with what will probably be a fifteen hour day. I can't wait for it to be over.

    I'd still like to take you up on that heat treat, John. I also need to put that order in with McMaster Carr.

    Taking the next four days off. Tomorrow and Saturday we are helping Becky and Jonny get their yard ready, the wedding is Sunday, and I am helping clean up Monday. Back in the shop on Tuesday.

    I hate Facebook, but my sister is on it so I am also on a limited basis.
    I'll post some JKs next time I'm there.
    How does one "tag" you?

    I'm not a huge Facebook fan either, but in my opinion this forum is dying.

    Ok for todays hike I went back to the park with the beach, but I first hiked up a trail through the woods then hit the beach.
    Going up.

    And up.

    And over the bridge.[​IMG]

    The bridge from even further up the trail.
    The trail did a bunch of switchbacks after the bridge, but old Myke kept plugging along to the top.:rolleyes:

    The light spot in the center of this stump is fatwood, but being in the park I naturally couldn't harvest any.:(

    Love the pictures. The one of the sun is really amazing. It looks like a fire in the sky.

    DONE!

    I got home about an hour ago, tore off the sport coat/business clothes, put on what the wife Cale's "comfy clothes" and opened a beer.

    As usual, awesome photos Mykel. I spent so much time in a hotel conference room today that when I finally left I expected it to be dark outside. The wife and I tried to go for a walk at the local park along the Fox river yesterday afternoon but the bugs were thick enough to choke on.

    Set up a 25' x 50' canopy and a smaller screen tent for the food today, then set up tables and chairs.
