Awesome thread! Absolutely the best I have read so far!

You definitely have a skill set that is "next level", I am curious to know what it looks like now!

Thanks for posting

I don't know how I missed this thread. I just wanted to add my WOW!, to the thread.

Very nice work and thanks for sharing. Thanks for your service to the country and keep the projects going while you can. You never know when you will end up not being able to do them anymore and miss the hard work and the sweating for fun and purpose.
