    This is one of my past times. It's a 12 foot skiff. Off to Sydney, Australia in a couple of days to take on the aussies

    I'm also into my cars. Got a 79 GT Clumban mini and a st185 Toyota celica.

    During winter down here I play rugby for the local club which allows me to pretend I'm still young.

    I have gotten quite a bit more done on the car lately and also picked up a couple others.

    Your making some serious HP there. Do you do your own engine building?

    Sounds like a Buckey Austin or Brad Anderson funny car engine from the good old day's 80's

    Hard to beat the sound of a AA/FC engine.

    Holy crap! There are like nine buttloads of talent in you guys! Well done!

    I'm not in forestry operations, per se, other than my backyard, but I like this thread a lot. I'm a fairly new woodworker and I'm very hesitant to call myself that. I just started turning wood a couple years ago and haven't practiced a whole lot but below are some of my projects. I'm an even newer metal worker to the point of not having any projects there at all but an interest in making weird sculpturey stuff. I also have a motorcycle (2004 Honda VTX1300) that is fun but has kind of grown a bit too scary for me. I wish I had the energy some of you guys seem to have!
