    Sheeit!...I'm in...been playing with wood since I was 13 years old, which makes it a skoche under 50 years...limit myself to only working on 8/12's or less these days, the 10/12 I framed about 3yrs back taught me a lesson...I don't frame new construction any more, but refuse to hire a framing crew for small remodel shit or crap like pergolas...mainly trim work now, which still has me scurrying around on my knees running base and shoe mould...this after rugby from Under 7's through age 21 and foredeck for about 25 yrs...dirt bikes check...skateboard/surfing check...skiing check...5 or 6 broken wrists, one poorly set broken clavicle which is a bitch to sleep on occasionally, numerous broken ribs...at this point all I'm doing is popping a couple turmerics every morning with my V8 and I flush the system with Miller High Life every evening...some Tiger Balm on the inevitable aches and pains...this system seems to be working for me...Grabs Jr. calls me "The Cockroach"...gotta admit it did take me 3 hrs to unload about 1500 board feet of "pond dried" treated deck lumber the other day, but it was 95° and took like 60 trips up and down a decent slope...but like my Hawaiian buddy said when I told him about it..."Good kine pain, little hurt, heavy breath, but you know you alive"...

    "Retire at 60 and be a bit poorer but healthier or work as long as you can and be a bit wealthier and a bit/lot more physically wrecked?" Still trying to figure out how being a librarian for a couple extra years is gonna "physically wreck" you...

    Self employed carpenter, so technically I'm my own boss...usually still work a full 30-40 hr week, but got it dialled back enough that I can take off to fish, sail, hunt, whenever I feel like it...why on earth would I want to "retire" and start working for The Missus?...

    Jr. brought home a nice 160# swordy this week...plus a metric shit ton of blackfin which is currently working its way through the smoker...see "Grilling thread" for details...

    The chimney works fine...you don't have to put all the charcoal in, just dump a chimney load over your bed, it'll spread fast enough...that Kamado Joe Big Lump is double bagged so it is very dry...Argentinian hardwood, big chunks, very little"chaff"...you'll be amazed how quick it lights...

    Long weekend. What’s on the grill?

    Love my BGE...I've found that using a good quality charcoal speeds the lighting process...been using Kamado Joe Big Lump from Lowes mostly...fire it up in three spots with a MAP gas torch and that shit gets blazing in under 10 minutes...I've had to adjust my cook-prep/pre-cook-beer plan because of this ...side note: I've been using the Traeger pellets on my vertical smoker instead of chips/lumps and love them...

    Long weekend. What’s on the grill?

    Only true way to test is the boiling water test...Thermopop is the entry level unit made by Thermapen...I've not encountered any problems with mine...but you've got me headed to the stove to boil some water...
