If I can work less than I've been in the past few months, I should be able to finish all the work in 3 - 4 months.

We are pursuing a specific piece of land right now and if that works out I'll have to get it cleared, a septic put in, have a shop built (probably won't build it ourselves, too busy), and get a trailer on it to move into.

Once we move out I have to do touch up paint and misc finish up stuff, have my floors refinished and the roof done, then put the house on the market.

Then I'll have a shell of a shop that needs a ton of work to make functional. So yeah... its a busy time.

Too far. Work is usually too busy to leave for a week in June. Last trip was just a weekend.

Re: Meeting Members Thread - Camping Trip


I'd definitely maybe be up for a VA get-together in June. Just depends on workload; I generally don't schedule out that far, but rumor has it that I'll be pretty busy for much of the summer.

Whether I make that or not, I'd be happy to host a repeat at our camp. As long as Rob shows up to cook.
