    Yeah we've had those since the mid 90s, the older vesion says dont even swim, just let it take you out and then swim out and around. It's common sense for the locals, its a tourist problem, 28 mile beach, 23 miles are drivable, just a giant party on the 4th of july, and the lack of education arises.

        It's been a long time coming but things are finally coming together enough to where it's starting to feel like "home".

        Paint has been going up inside the house and should be all finished up this weekend. Carpet was ordered today and should be installed in a week.

        The new Honeycomb Hideout. Still very surreal.









        Did some organizing in the garage. More than half the stuff in there is going in the house once the carpet is installed. Should be plenty of room for me and my projects.



        Going to knock out that wooden "bench/work surface" and set another one of those metal work tables in it's place. Should be a nice amount of surface to do work on!



        So much cleaning to do around the front and back yard. The previous tenants had 9 kids + the parents living in the house. You don't even want to know how gross the carpets were, and they were only there for 8 months!

            No roomies this time. Just Danielle, Mo, and I.

            Danielle's Dad own's this house (He's got 4 rentals in the area.) he's getting ready to retire so he's selling two of them, holding onto the one's he owns (one of which we are renting from him, which he's made it clear that we have the option to buy it if/when we decide.). We are very blessed and lucky to get this opportunity which is why i'm so stoked!

            3bdrm/2bath/Bonus Room behind the garage/ and of course the garage. Greenbelt in the back yard. So much quieter than Seattle.

I grew up in a beach town surfing and realized through a conversation with a buddy this year that we do not even realize when they catch us anymore. It's just nature to see land disappearing and swim side shore. Never even makes a mental note.

                      Last time I order from Ireland Engineering.

                      Can't even send the correct size nuts... so much for getting my engine in this weekend.

                        Haha I'm pretty dissapointed in the year its been in Seattle its gotten more door dings then I can count on my hands. This is parking back of lot close to a curb almost all the time. Seattle is just full of inconsiderate assholes I guess.

                              I have the HD rockers in my car, so hopefully those aren't shit. Been trying to get this fucking engine in my car in running for five months now. Its just coming down to one thing after another. Everyone I go through is just fucking up royally.

                              So I am just doing artsy fartsy valve cover crap while I wait... again.
