No...what I'm trying to say is....on the 1st page when you go to the bottom under "Trailer Forum" it shows only 2 members viewing that entire area of the forum. Then when you look at the total number of people looking at the entire Airforum... the number is 1,100+? That's all I'm saying...Just wondering, Mr. A....

I had my username changed today to....Trex.

Here's some pics of Lily pad lake, below Kangaroo Lake, (KL) on the Klamath National Forest. This is a great little place to go fishing when there are too many swimmers at Kangaroo lake, its only a 1/4 mile down the road from KL.

Today, I cut out, glued, and screwed four cabinet doors for the overhead storage. Last task of the day, was to glue pocket plugs to hide the pocket screws. I had to buy a new Pocket Hole jig kit today, because the old one was worn out....$ 29 bucks at Home Depot. The last photo shows me cutting down the pocket hole plugs to fit the holes. Don't try this without using the vise grips...you could lose a finger!

Our state needs your tax dollar...so maybe you guys should move on out... Northern Calif. is a great place to go camping, RV'ing, Harley riding, and any other kind of outdoor activity you're in to.

The only down side are the taxes...property, vehicle, and sales taxes are all too high! But, other than that, it's a great place, with lots of outdoor activities within an hour of the greater Shasta Lake/Redding area.

Hey Trex,
Great pics of those alpine lakes.I can just about smell those pines. Is the water warm enough for swimming?
I see that those cabinet doors are coming along, what did you (or the Bunny) deceide to do under the sink and towel bar?
By the way, when you dropped the Skill saw the other day, did it happen to land on your right big toe? Steel toed flip flops for you!
The dude abides!

Today I sanded, and sanded, and sanded! 100 degrees here in Shasta Lake today, not much fun with dust mask on...would like to have all the doors done by tomorrow.

On Sat. I'm going to Mt. Shasta to help my cousin cut firewood, so I will take the four doors with me, and hopefully use his $200 hinge jig to drill out the holes for the 1/2" over-hang-hinges.
Photos of before and after sanding... and had to check to make sure the doors will fit...they do.

Today is "Fiesta Friday" here at Trex & The Bunny's place... So, I picked tomatoes (5 types) , 3 types of peppers, 2 types of onions, and some garlic to make some fresh salsa, all from the backyard garden...Checked the the pears in the frontyard, they're almost ready.

PS, continued sanding on the last cabinet door...

Finished sanding the last cabinet door frame today...now it's time to check the chainsaw, and ensure it runs. Then load everything up for firewood cutting with my cousin Rich tomorrow. Looks like we may go to the Mt. Shasta Ski Park to cut wood...

Rich and I, have both worked at the ski area over the years. He has built decks and some remodels at the park, and at the owners house... I worked as the Race Director for High School and City Alpine Races, (in the 90's). Hopefully, tomorrow we will see another friend of ours, who is the operations manager for the ski park.

If you're looking for a seasonal job...the Ski park hires 100's of people each winter. Look for there website for the details.

Tomorrow, I WILL be wearing my chainsaw PPE's... At the 6,000' level, (Ski Park), it will be cool enough to wear boots & long pants. As a young hotshot crew member,(back in the 1980's), I witnessed some pretty ugly chainsaw accidents on fires and on project work...

But, I did cut back the hedge today in my flip-flops...I had to test my saw, to ensure it would run tomorrow.

This morning I met my cousin for a day of firewood cutting up on Mt. Shasta next to the Ski Park. We cut two loads in the AM & two in the PM. Once we finished cutting firewood, cousin Rich got his hinge jig out and cut the holes for the cabinet door hinges... Made it back home to Shasta Lake around 7:00 PM... a good day.

Hey Trex,
Nice pile of firewood. Been doing the same myself. Pine logs? It was sure nice of the wood elves to remove all the branches and stack the logs at the side of the road!
Now that the cabinet doors are almost done, what's next on the to do list?
Today I had removed the side marker lenses so I wouldn't break them while polishing.
While they were off I sprayed the inside of the lenses with Krylon Stainedglass Window paint.they turned out really nice. I set them on top of the rear tractor tire to dry. Several hours later, when putting the tractor back in the shed ...... I'll be ordering new lenses next week.

We cut White fir & knobcone pine, the fir was in a log deck in the parking lot of the Ski park & the pine was standing snags that I fell...two out of three went the right direction, when I dropped them. The one that went the wrong direction, didn't cause any damage, so it's all good!

Bummer about the lenses, Tim... I hate when I make a bad move, and it costs me money.

My cousin is a great guy, and I was happy to help him get his wood in for the winter. And I was very happy to get one more task completed on the cabinet door frames.

My next project is to build two closet doors between the kitchen and bathroom. Than, I need to build a door for the bathroom, (with a port hole). Last on the list is a bathroom makeover...but keep the bathroom 100% original.

The Bunny got back from her vacation in Southern California, and she had a great time! You would need to go to her Facebook page to see the details, (Crystal Gonzalez).

Anyway, her mom gave her this really cool cutting board, for Rita. And also, she purchased a really nice wooden sign from her home town. Not sure where the sign will go...in Rita or outside by the pool?
