Progress as of Friday. Shingles loaded ready to install Monday and windows/vapor barrier also going in Monday.

I heard the(unofficial) number from a friend in town today of what they got From Anheuser B. It is HUGE!!!!!! Think net worth of some of our top Moto heroes...

Rizz, yeah that was big news a few weeks ago. Some of the 10B faithful are pissed and even boycotted the pub. It was eerily quiet in there the first two weeks after the announcement. I know the owners Chris, Jeremy and Garrett and I can tell you this, ... more »

Ross, I didn't know Smokey but we used to go into the shops there. Who owned the Suzuki dealer on RT 6? I didn't live there full time but we were there about every other month or so. I knew Andy Bear we used to race with him in the D6 circuit, he and

It sounds like you know what you are talking about, thanks for the input man. Having shitty eyesight I want the entire shop lit equally(extra) bright and especially with LED's the electric bill shouldn't be a big deal. I was looking at the LED bulbs

Thanks for all the input, I really appreciate it. I am only going to use tube fixtures, no cans. The link you sent for the bulbs, what kind of base or ballast would I purchase to put them in?

How many of those types of lights will I need to cover a 42'x42' shop with 16' high ceilings? I want it so I have to wear sunglasses just about. I have a bad astigmatism and when the light isn't sharp I fall asleep or get cranky or both

WalMart is exactly 4.3 miles from the end of our driveway. I know it looks like we are in the middle of nowhere but we are just on the edge of Bend's South city limit. All the view shots are to the West where the National forest stretches for the next ... more »

I thought of that as soon as I climbed up there for the first time. It's crazy how good of a view you get of the track. It's definitely going to be fun to watch a good battle from up there.

Yep, the door height is 14'3" and the bay is 42' deep complete with sewer dump in the slab. It will also have a water and electric hook up in the wall as well. I only have a 28' toyhauler but I thought if I ever sold it or bought a bigger motorhome I
