    Art, it's been 14 years... what a journey! It all started with a "COW"..and (for me) early Ebay hunting (back when vintage quality could be had for $50-$100, before the good stuff dried up). And from Crockett to Rodeo, and beyond (for you). I do miss those El Sol lunches. This place inspired my trip to Chicago to visit Optimo. I made some good friends there. It's not all about the hat, it's more, it's the friends here on the Lounge. Some are no longer here, sadly. But, at least YOU are still in my "speed dial" ;)

    Its about a 13 hour drive straight down the I-5. We used to stay in the City camp ground in Grants Pass but it has a large homeless population now and a bit too rough around the edges for us. Will be searching for an RV park closer to Medford.

    The Jackson county Fairgrounds now has an RV park open to the public but have no info on it for you. It's all of 3 minutes from the new shop. When the time comes, reach out & I'll try to help

    Congratulations Art! I'm excited for the new shop, it sounds really nice. Hopefully it won't be as hot in the summer as your current shop.

    Thanks Mason, nope, this one has good heat AND air conditioning. What a pleasure it will be working in controlled conditions. The big move starts this week and I expect it will take a couple of weeks to be set up there

    Thanks Bob, what a job, as you know. I was able to get the finger blocker moved over the weekend but can't start in earnest until I finish painting ( hopefully today)

    You bet Art. If I were just a hair closer, I would be happy to help. Well, as long as I don't have to paint ;)
