    I almost ended up in Vegas for NAB this weekend but COVID still keeping the numbers we are sending low.

    Headed to Oregon in June though, never been.

    Oregon is on my list for this year. Want to check out Bend and the surrounding area. Wizard Mountain is a must.

    Bend is beautiful - spent a week there last summer. Make some time for a hike around Smith Rocks.

    4th times a charm for the caribbean cruise….hopefully get to go this time around. It’s not until March 2023 but paid for it via credits from previously cancelled cruises today

    Sometimes you gotta treat yourself

    My Milwaukee M18 batteries stopped charging today mid job - ugh! I cleaned all the contact points and one of the 3 batteries was charging again - hopefully not something wrong with them - awesome drills and saw.

    My own purchases: a bunch of lumber, joist hangers, nails, screws - rebuilding the set of stairs to the side of the house that had rotted out.

    I was really starting to get worried for a bit. Still may have to cancel our first camping trip for May long.

    2 of 3 have charged now - I think the contacts were just dirtier than I thought. Going to try the 3rd now.

    I used it for cutting pipe and angle iron. Loved it. Pivot feature was also super handy.

    New Sony Xb43 Bluetooth speaker. This thing is AMAZING.

    Got it with my airmiles. It's the size of a boombox and is gonna be great for camping and hunting. But can also see it replacing my household speakers. Sound is great! And it fills the house. 24 hour battery life on regular settings if you turn off the light show and "live mode". (Which I won't turn off cause that makes it sound like the music is literally live in your living room.).

    Best airmiles purchase I've made.

    Have the previous version of this. Can definitely testify that it's great on kids/pet stains. Havent tried in on the truck. Good idea.

    In my situation it’s one less tool to haul around. Currently plumbing an apartment building, approximately 240 bathrooms plus kitchens and laundry etc…

    I would have my sawzall for cutting pipe and a grinder for cutting threaded rod to hang the pipe. When working with 4” pipe I would often use a chop saw to cut the pipe because I would often get crooked cuts from my sawzall on pipe that big.

    With the band saw, I can do all of that with the one tool

    I have one of those that's broken. The pump failed. Apparently it's a common issue. Pisses me off too because it's not something that was ever used a lot but it was useful to have on hand :curse:
