Louisiana. In May. My wife is gonna hate this.
As for me, I'm very much looking forward to going home. I grew up outside New Orleans, and am very much looking forward to the first crawfish boil at the new house. Which, by the way, happens to have a garashop. Also, the prospect of wetting a line for specks and bull reds seems particularly appealing.
I gave away my snow shovel today :)
SWMBO will be entering her family practice residency at the local hospital, and I hope to work like a man possessed until August, at which time I will start to finish (?) my degree at LSU. If I can avoid working during that time, I can finish in 3 semesters. Student loans, Pell grants and Chapter 30 GI Bill are wonderful things.
Soooo, anybody have any suggestions on moving a shop full of gear? Boxes, schmoxes. Crates, schmates. I buy used. Stuff like, will the table saw be okay standing up in the truck, or should I take the table off and lay 'er down? Same with the jointer and bandsaw and drill press. Keep the cabinets and shelves on the walls (which are all pretty full), or just hope to rustle some up after the move? What the f**k am I gonna do with my workbench? Set it upside down and stack cabinets on top? By the way, anybody wants to help out on either end, I'm buying bratwurst (or shrimp poor boys) and beverages.
Now all I have to worry about is a job. Anybody have any leads for carpenters/pool men in Red Stick?
