Well I am going to be out of the shop and going through withdrawals for a few weeks. I am hopping a plane to Gateshead England, in the morning for a three-week business trip. When I return I am off to Fort Sill Oklahoma, to see my daughter graduate from Army Boot Camp. Then it is off to the in-laws in South Dakota for a few days, finally I return to Texas on the 20th of August when I can get back into my shop after a 34-day hiatus.

I shall try to log on to LumberJocks from time to time while I am out and about to keep up with who is doing what project. I sure hope I can handle the woodworking withdrawals.

AWWW! You make it sound like you don’t even wanna go do these things? You are just trying to get an excuse for us to give you sympathy? I think you are most looking forward to the Fort Sill experience! However, I will wish you good fortune and safety in your travels. Come back refreshed or…. not, ready to hit the grindstone in your workshop. I hope you pick up lots of ideas and inspirations on your travels and score at least some new wood! I sort of envy you.

I can agree with having withdrawls. I havent been in the shop for about a week, due to my health. I had real withdrawls especially since its in the garage.
