thansk, glad you enjoyed, i'm going to be adding more on the welding and such. i find i cut straighter with a 72" torch then a 18" torch, so some people might find that interesting.

Very interesting site, King. Right now you must be heartbroken over the lack of snow and the 100 degree temps. But don't worry....I have seen plenty of snow up your way in July. Welcome to SFT..........

Well KoO,

I read through nearly all of your website. Quite an amazing life you have going up there. It's really beyond my ability to imagine & I enjoyed the pictures very much.
I have a couple of questions:

What is your dog's name? (We like pictures of dogs too, you know. )

And what is steve's id here on SFT?
