    well left sunday at 430 got back last night at 11pm
    started here in PA went to atlanta to see the aquarium on monday had dinner with an old USMC buddy and his brother (brother is gettign into knife making )
    tues morning went to huntville AL picked up the biggest wood lathe i have ever seen and some tooling and hung out with my aunt (i think i get part of my crazy artist genes from her as she is a published quilter adn fabric dyer and wood carver)
    woke up wed morn had breakfast and got on the road
    glad its done and i hope to have some pictures soon as i at least get the lath back up on its feet

    ooo massive thanks to my wife who did the bulk of the driving and also to the kids (yep they were along) stuffed into the back of a 4 door truck for over 30 hours of driving in 3 days could not have asked for them to have been better about it

    Wow, nice. 30 hours does not sound all that bad....30 hours with kids....misery.

    Looking forward to seeing what comes from the lathe.
