No luck with the dealer on the tranny issue at this time. They are however willing to re-visit the issue should it get worse. Everthing else is fixed and the sun is shinning so time for another drive. It's hiberbation time for Pumpkin very soon.

Had a cool drive today around town running around doing some chores. Might get a few more days yet. Cool,clear and dry is the forcast for the next few days.

Just finished the plumbing for 3 seperate kegs to go with the taps. That build has a done sticker on it now. The big change was swapping out the clear CO2 line to the red 1/4 ID air line, way more flexible when it's cold.

Another great driving day up here but too busy brewing to take advantage of it. The monsoons start late tomorrow night. Need to get Pumpkin washed and put away tomorrow afternoon across the street at my Buddy Tom's shop. Got Pumpkin at work over night and pardon the pun, but there will be frost on the Pumpkin in the morning.

Busy day in the brewery, kegged the Storm IPA and brewed the Three Sisters Pale Ale. All went pretty well as we had two apprentice brewers learning the ropes today to help us. Starting at the bottom with Oxy Clean, no rinse sanitizer and a scrub brush. Clean, clean ,clean is the word of the day when your brewing. We got a new toy to carbonte the kegs. It's kind like an aquarium airstone but made of SS. Find out in a day or two how it works.

My Buddy does want to open a Brew Pub in our area, cause we don't have one close by. But it's more of a pipe dream then anything. BTW we got rave reviews from the people who tried our Nut Brow Ale. So that's a good start. Couple of days to carbonate and we will try the IPA.

Well that's it except for the crying Pumpkin is in hibernation for the winter across the street at my Buddy Tom's, heated storage is reasonable and acess in awsome. All washed up and tucked away for the winter now. Next on the list is a massive Adams detail. LPE gears are on the way, I'll bring them back to CDN on my return from the Super Car Street Nationals in Vegas in a couple of weeks. The new car is race ready and flights are booked for the crew the boy's leave at the end of this week with the Toater Home and stacker to pick-up the new car in Long Beach CA, then on to Vegas to start testing Wednesday the 16th.

No when I looked into it further, you to cut up the stock wiring to install it. So it will be back to the MSD 2-Step. I will however being installing the MSD 2-step and TCI linlock for sure this winter. Pumpkin is across the street in storage now. I will make a point of removing the drivers seat and installing the micro switch soon as possible. Just for you. That's the hardest part in the installation. The rest is plug and play except for micro switch adjustment.

No problem Bud. Like I said Pumpkin is across the street and that's a mod I can easily do there. I will be spending a bunch of time detailing in the next few months, I'll put it to the top of the list. I'll pull both seats out and vacum and us my Adam's carpet cleaner. Not that the carpets are dirty though.

The Boy's left this morning with the transporter. I fly in next Tuesday night. We believe we will go faster then we have ever gone before and that's all good. Tuff sandbox to be in, last year 56 cars for 32 spots.

Day one of Sockey Salmon canning went well. Half a dozen out for tomorrow and brew another batch of Nut Brown on Sunday. No rest for the wicked.
