I grew up around gliders and sailplanes. A brilliant man, Dick Schreder (pronounced skreeder, because he was if Dutch ancestry), designed a series of sailplanes that could be home-built and still had very good performance for their time. I bought a kit that was in progress and almost finished it. I met him a few times in my life and I thought him to be one of the finest people I had ever met. In his genius, he was humble and gracious. I was 10 when I met him and didn't see him again until I was in my 20s. He called me by name and came over to talk to me... I was shocked that he would remember me at all. We were friends from then on, and I was the beneficiary of some of his knowledge. The glider I built is N4088C.

When my mom went to the nursing home we got the cat. He became sick and my dear wife would not leave him. So I scratched my head and rented a class C from cruise America. Eventually purchaseed the Greyhawk. Even put a cb radio in and our handle is the camping cat. Incidently, he has his own fireplace at home... lol

Dropnaduece - says it all I was dropnaduece when I created my login so I went with it...haha just kidding. My family is new to the trailer life and when we went on our maiden voyage we thought it to be weird and funny to poop in a trailer so I told my boys if your going to "drop a deuce" use the park bathroom cause I was grossed out to think of my first grey tank dump. Over it now but never seen it done and not ever owning a trailer before it kind of grossed me out. Now it's funny cause my youngest likes hitting the dump station with me after our trips lol. That's how I came up with mine and it just sounds funny and I'm a funny guy

Me = Debbie
Husband = Ken

I used to use it the other way "KenDeb" on some sites but then everyone assumed he was posting when, in reality, it is always me (sometimes he asks me to ask you all a question).

SparkDr...worked many years in the electrical trade. First as a counter man at a distributor and then on to residential, commercial, industrial, and government projects. Along the way, I earned quite a reputation among my peers as the guy who could troubleshoot just about anything and the rewarded me with the nickname. I haven't worked out in the field in years, but I still carry the nickname wherever I go like a badge of honor. I guess I'll always have a soft spot for the wire tigers and nut twisters out there.
Ode to the Forum Moderators

May the Mods grant me the serenity to accept the opinions of those I cannot change,
the courage to offer valid input to those who are open to another way of thinking,
and the wisdom to shut myself down whenever I get too in love with my own misconceived brilliance.

I've been building furniture full time for the last 15 years. I was an engineer in the automotive industry in a former life.
You've most likely seen the "Wood wrights Shop" on PBS and know he builds all sorts of wooden projects. The 1800s census occupations listed a "Board wright" as a furniture builder, hence the user name.
