I am building from scratch, a new gyroplane that should hopefully be done before March when I get busy again. Been slowly working on it almost every day, cutting, drilling and bolting stuff together

Not doing much here at all... Kept busy in December/first part of Jan. from our ice storm. Also got to work on equipment repairs, rather early though. Went to Floida for a week (last week). Now this week I've been lazy as heck! I just can't seem to get motivated to do anything at all... Partly because I'm procrastinating getting my TAXES done. I have a mountian of crap to sort through and orginize, a good weeks worth of "office work". My head throbs just thinking about it.

I keep telling myself I need to find a real "hobby" for the winter months, but it seems like everything there is takes a LOT of money to get into. It's just cheaper for me to do nothing, lol.

building model boats....

my latest purchase

its still in box to be built. weigh in around 20 lbs and 4-5 feet long.
I have two other boats a 36" 4 lb sail boat, and 1 meter long 10 pounder.

currently building from scratch (no kit only scaled plans) a schooner. Plank on frame construction that will be sea worthy.

all boats RC with no engine of any kind...

keeps me out of trouble.....most of the time...

I brew beer from scratch (buying my own barley malt, milling the grain, hops, etc) in 20 gallon batches. Great hobby, and I can make my own recipes for the types I like best. That means no tasteless lagers, like Bud or Miller.

Yeah it's just warm enough not to snow tons but cold enough to provide nothing but hard work for little money so I stay home instead. The few calls I get are almost always some type of a waste of time, every once in a moon I'll go out and go take a look like if I need an excuse to drive the car but I don't get much out of leading customers on either so ...

Lawnsite, gassavers, trukz, conquer online, work on the web site....

Lots of inside home repairs and upgrades especially in the energy consumption reduction department, totally go over and through all the vehicles and equipment repairs too.

Think of what I'm going to do different this year, then forget to write it down

Sleep, lots of that.
