Bahama Bob's, is that a restaurant ? When we were in Hawaii 2 years ago, we ate breakfast at Bongo Ben's nearly every day.
The first couple years we played tourist. Then we played beach bums. And surf fished. We love the beach, because we know what we're going home to.

Yep, restaraunt. Ever eat at Tacky Jacks just down the peninsula towards the Fort? May have to eat there just to get a T-shirt........_

Looks like they have a Charter Service. Looks like you'd have to run to others who wanted to go, otherwise, it's $380 for 1 person 4hrs.

When it's nice out we plan on doing a bunch of beach time.... And, fishing... Just want to soak in the nice warm sun and listen to the surf...... In other words, veg..................

Of course we need to hit our spot too, Bahama Bob's. My daughter has already requested a t-shirt....

From there down thru Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, it's all commercial tourist traps and swim suit shops...
If you have time and want to travel more, the Blue Angles are stationed in Pensacola and the museum is well worth the trip. Lots of aviation history and planes on display.

i always wanted a drill adapter for drilling various flange welds.. using one of the vice grip 9R pliers with a mini drill press sort of device to clamp on to my drill neck. so i can clamp on to the flange.. and squeeze something and the weld is drilled part way thru. would it work on every weld.. nope..

could it be air powered to lighten it.. could it be made with some other type of clamping device.. screws at angles thru a grooved clamp block.. its just an idea..

could it be battery powered with a remote 12 volt battery.. hint.. jump start box.. or full sized car battery.

its just a thought.

When this thing is together I MUST get over there to sit in it and make Vrrrrrm vrrrrm sounds!

Thanks Mitch.... It's been a while since we went south. We're overdue.... Hopefully we'll run into rain on the way home to help wash the hauler and trailer down good....

1st time with an RV. Usually rent a condo. I think this will be a lot more fun.

Is it time to leave yet?

idrivejunk I was sawing wood from a 33 Ford today and am just amazed by that lumber. Anybody know what that stuff is? I saw repros made from ash. I need to make a couple new pieces, what would you use?
