Google says this is a toboggan.



Why am I even debating this? I've only seen snow twice in my life.

That would truly be a treat!

But sadly I hung up the keys to Monstro last July, and now I am working here: The World's Largest Building

Building wings for these:



Since I am getting on in years this will likely be the last real job I ever hold, barring any layoffs. Since the goal is to get the mortgage paid off on this nice home Mrs. Racer and I designed and built on our little slice of paradise by the river, I will be working just about all the extra hours that I can (of course OT is the order of the day at this place, so that should work out great).



So it may be a good while before any excursions taken during holidays or vacations will be closer to home.

*sigh!*

But if you ever get out our way, send me a PM! Mrs. Racer and I would enjoy having you stop by.

Nice house site, and house. Your product is nice to ride in. The first plane to be designed entirely on computer before building the first copy. Sadly we lost the video about that which we used to use in classes - before we lost it.

Oh, that one. They are actually based near where I live.



ELEVEN POUNDS OF NUTELLA?

Does it come with a hand truck to wheel it around?


The handtruck is available but must be bought as a separate item.

I live 96 kilometres from Mount Buffalo, our closest snow in winter.
I've never been up the mountain in the winter!!
I have a nice wood burner fire at my place and I find that much more comfortable.

I don't like the bigger bottles of Nutella. They tend to go hard at the bottom no matter how much you stir. The littler ones I seldom have that problem.

Just caught up on last weeks posts! Things I learned:
Stock up on tp,
Don't eat cheese that looks like baby poo,
Don't go swimming with whales unless you want the at work experience,
Don't buy Nutella in bulk, (still like Costco!)
Watch for dog doo around Normhead's house,
and don't ask for romantic advice from Canikonians! Ever!!

This thread helped me for forget about a truly horrifying week I had!! Keep up the good work!
Joel

I wouldn't say that, it seems like some of these guys have their love lives together. Note that I am by no means one of these people.
