i have been having fun.  Just not here. 

OK you guys going to San Diego, when you are done at Black's beach here is something for you

As those of you who've come to any of our concerts at Sweetwater High School know, we were able to keep AMSD going thanks to the help of the school's Theater teacher, Ben Cassel -- and he and his students have put in a LOT of hours, helping us set up for and run the concerts.
 
Thanks in large part to donations made to the school's Theater Arts Program by our concert-goers, Ben's been able to produce plays again -- including taking productions on the road, locally as well as for recent performances at a big teacher's conference in the Los Angeles area.
 
They're presenting a play written by Ben -- Alicia en la Wonderland (it's in English)-- this Thursday, Friday and Saturday in the theater in which we present our concerts.
 
Following is information about the play.  I hope some of you who have gone to our concerts there will attend one of the presentations.  I know Ben and the students -- many of whom help at our concerts -- would appreciate it.  As noted below, there's NO ADMISSION CHARGE -- but donations are accepted and appreciated.

Alicia en la Wonderland
 
The play was written by Ben Cassel, who is supervising director, with student director Dianna Elizardo, who also plays Alicia. Crystal Mercado is the director of Bocón, and RoseAnita Hernandez produced the show.
 

 
Sweetwater High Theatre Guild presents the National City version of Lewis Carroll’s Alice books.  Presented entirely in English, Alicia en la Wonderland features a sarcastic teenager who follows El Conejo Blanco into a strange and confusing world.  There she meets the MEChA Cat, attends a party with the Hat Shop Guy and the Blonde Hare; takes part in the weirdest Lotería game ever played; and acts as a witness in the trial of El Borracho for stealing pan dulce.  Ultimately, Alicia discovers who she is by learning where she came from.
 
The high school students are joined on stage by the 8-11 year old puppetmasters of Bocón Community Arts Project. 
 
The play runs May 5-7Thursday and Friday at 7 PM, and Saturday at 5 PM.  There is no admission charge, but donations are accepted.

I haven't completely left guys.  I have always wondered what all of the word paranoia is all about here though?  Such as s i t e and others.  Irritated many of us.  We sure had some great times here until I got back from my long weekend and everyone is bailing due to one one-just-like-silly-me.  Yes I said a=s=s    That is way too bad, really hurt our whole camaraderie.  We did have something special here, or at least that is what I thought.  Told all of my friends and relatives too.

Uh...uh...ya lost me, Del...but I've kinda been that way all day today....and eyeguy hasn't offered me any photobombing pics to cheer me up, either.

I just got this in email from a concert promoter.  We went to one of the concerts he promoted, in a high school in National City, which is a relatively poor hispanic part of San Diego.  I thought it sounded really cool.  Too bad it is so far away, I would love to go. 

So I shared it...

Agreed. I took an extended timeout after having too many of mynoists edited or deleted while some other pro staff could do anything but cam back because of this forum and the group that was on here. Missed the whole kerfuffel but it was a necessary thing. Hope it gets the whole band back together.

Hopefully someone can talk RH into coming back. Sometimes a person just needs to say #$#$ it and keep chugging along. RH, RH, RH, RH you have more friends here then dislikers. I may not post a lot on here, but I enjoy the threads even when they do get off topic. That is when the laughs usually start and make it fun. Have a good day fellers!

Morning guys. I needed that sleep to clear me noggin after all the fluff'n stuff. 48* and sunny here. I sincerely hope we can get back on track and have a fun group again. I'm not going into it again, I was right in the middle, and I still have certain feelings over it too. I'll do what I need to, all I'll say is if certain people had had respect for others, followed the very basic forum rules, and weren't worried only about themselves, it never would have happened. I'm done talking about it. Move on or move out, I guess. So, later today or early evening, when the sun is on the other side of the house, it's stain the deck time. Did the top rails yesterday, and the 125 %$#@ vertical stringers. Walking the 4" roller on a pole across the deck boards is a piece of cake Should be done in an hour or so. I NEED that cawfee that's now done...have a good day guys, and bring the fun back.

I cooked down a goose in the slow cooker yesterday. Low heat for 10hrs in coffee, sea salt, garlic, and onion. 

Pulled it out and let it cool, then pulled it apart and mixed up a sauce of bbq, deli mustard, brown sugar, and cider vinegar. (I will admit that the legs and thighs may not have made it into the mix. Man they were good, not sure why people toss them)

Served on a potato roll and Topped with a homemade slaw of chopped wild ramps(bulbs and greens) and an apple.

It doesn't look like much, and always surprises me when an 18lb goose cooks down to 4/5 cups of shredded meat. 

But soo worth the work. 

Looks like i picked the wrong week to be out of town.

    • A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you. 
    • It was slow for us this year, steelhead on Sunday afternoon, and only a couple nice kings on Monday. But the potential for a big fish is there again this year.   My friend is a little on the small side, always makes nice fish look HUGE.   My early morning fish came in at 23.6 lbs. A pound and a half heavier than the top pic.      
    • Nice work, that looks incredible. And I'm a big fan of the grey motif.   Thanks for the show and write up.
    • Yeah we brought it up to our cabin and sleep in it if there are a bunch of people up there. Thanks!
    • Are you guys using it as a summer camper as well?  Super Product right there!  😎
    • Thanks! It weighed in over what I thought which was disappointing. It was right around 7000 lbs with full propane tanks and some other stuff in it. We actually weighed it just after getting spray foamed and it was already at like 5000 lbs I’m not sure how others that did the same style steel stud house have a finished weight around 5500 lbs.    The cost in materials was above 20K but below 25 still too scared to finish adding the receipts. We really tried to use the best materials we could find and not cut any corners. When I was pricing stuff out before we started my ballpark was 19K but I forgot to add a tv screws wire and little stuff like that.    Yeah it took a lot of time but I enjoyed it for the most part. I’m actually getting kind of bored now and don’t know what to do with all the free time. 
    • Thanks for taking the time to do a write up and post all the pics! That alone is a big undertaking in itself. Nice work.   any idea what finished weight is for the entire house?    And just a ballpark figure are you willing to share what it costs in material to build something like this?   I can’t imagine how many hours of your own labor you got into this build. I think it turned out amazing.
    • Alright here’s the finished product. I think it turned out pretty nice. Still need a stove/ range but working on it.    Underneath the lift bed there are 7 lights and two speakers. There are 4 lights above the lift bed. The 3 middle lights underneath are on one button the outer 4 are on a different button and above are on a separate button.  55” smart tv recessed into to wall. The speakers really kick out some sound in this thing though. The tv sound comes out of the 5 speakers in the house which are all ran through the stereo and an amp.      Hole lights  Single light above the stove area  This door is for the satellite receiver. The black center piece is tinted acrylic so you can still use the remote with the door shut. The hole just below the tv is also so you can use the tv remote.  Battery monitor  Supply and return water temperatures for the in floor heat. I was actually really surprised I got my 20 degree delta t I calculated for.  Lights above lift bed. Lift bed in lowest position. Could go lower but that’s just where we put the lowest at.  Different height if people are sleeping below.  Folding table.  These are the cabinets inside the bathroom wall. These are only about 9” deep but I think they will be deep enough for a little more storage. The converter is in here as well it is just above the wiring panel. And the large center square is a false front so you can access the tv wires. I think we are going to go with the dry flush toilet. I put a little 12 v outlet in there so it can br ran off the house batteries.     The only other thing I did that i don’t know if others have done is I wired the rear porch light to the reverse wire of the trailer plug. So when you put the truck in revers that porch light comes on and lights everything up.    I think that’s everything. Feel free to ask any questions if you have any. And thanks again to lipripper and others for posting their builds the information was a ton of help and sorry if I copied too much of your design. 
    • Next we made the back benches that our couches sit on. These things are very comfortable. The couches are the same ones they use in the firebrand fish houses. Matt from fish n style ordered them for us.     Both fold out to be beds. We also bought a 4” thick piece of foam that can go over the whole thing to make one bed when it’s used for camping.  Under each couch we made drawers. I figured it would be a pain to have to lay on the ground and open some doors to get something. They actually can hold a ton of stuff.  Both rear couches have the drawers.      Next we started working on our cabinets above the wheel wells. The two inside openings have doors and the outer two are soft close drawers.      We then made some countertops. They were actually really easy to make.    For our our upper bunk in the back we wanted it to be a lift bed. We did similar to what lip ripper did without the strut trolly things. We used some plastic that just keeps the bed within the strut. For our unistrut we found some super light aluminum strut that worked great. We are going to make a black cover to go over the foam.   inside the bed looks like this.      We have two motors inside the bed. One motor runs one side and the other runs the other. So basically the motor is in the middle and two cables come off of the wheel going opposite directions. Each cable goes around a pulley so now they are both heading for the wall. Once they get to the edge of the bed there is another pulley that directs the cable up towards the ceiling. On top of the strut we have a bolt that the cable is connected to. Each side does this. And the motors are wired together and are ran by a switch. We have holes drilled at different heights on the strut for pins to go through and the bed then rests on the pins. The motors were kind of pulling the bed up at different speeds so we contacted the motor company and they said thar getting two motors to go exactly the same speed without spending a ton of money is very hard to do. So we are going to try and either find one motor to somehow control all four sides or somehow connect the two motors with a shaft. But it does go up and down just one side ends up being about an inch higher once you get to the top.    Next up finished pictures.             
    • The house is done I’m just slowly putting pictures up and describing it.    Next thing we did was have it spray foamed. Which was a nightmare we went with the cheaper guy which was a mistake. I would not recommend American Spray foam which is who we used. After it was spray foamed we started the in floor heat similar to liprippers 2017 build. We put down 2 layers of 3/4” 250 pink foam board. In the top layer we used a router to make a groove where we wanted our pex to go worked out pretty slick. Next we put down as many heat transfer plates as we could. We used these little pex clips that got screwed into the plywood to hold the pex down around bends and a few straight places. Next we Pushed the pex into the heat transfer plates and the clips. We did ours with one zone that was around 120’ of pex.  I took a bunch of pictures of where all the pex ran with the tape measure showing how far away each line was from walls and stuff so We didn’t screw into it accidentally      We then put a layer of aluminum over all the pex.      We then stained all our pine tongue and groove. We used Jacobean then went over it with grey for a little different look. I think it turned out pretty good. For the trim pieces and cabinets we used special walnut. After the pine was stained we started nailing it to the furring strips.  For the window casings we used cedar in case there was any condensation. For the window trim we used pine. Once we got to this point I was a little nervous thinking our stain looked like something you’d see in your grandparents house but we kept going.  All these wires are for the lights and speakers we put in the lift bed.  We kind of installed lights and other things as we went.  Soms of the tongue and groove pine looked really cool and unique when we were staining and we set those aside and used them on the front wall. We thought about doing some fake stone looking stuff  but we were feeling the time crunch.  Next we started making some upper cabinets and finishing the window casings and trim. We’ve never done any of this so we were just kind of learning as we went.      Once we got the upper cabinets made we screwed them in place.    next we put up the backer for the tv. We used 3/4” pine I think they were 10” wide. Wasn’t exactly sure which tv we were getting and they all vary a bit in size so we stained it in case you could see behind it. Oh I forgot we also put the rubber coin floor down. We purchased it from garage floor LLC. The first roll they sent took like a month to get and it was the wrong floor but after I told them I needed the right floor right away they had the new roll on the doorstep the next day which was surprising. The floor got screwed down under cabinets and where the hole covers went. But by the time we got to the floor it was cold already and new we would have to figure something out in the summer when it got hot and expanded. So this summer when it was good and hot we pulled the edges of the floor tight and used some left over VHB tape which actually worked to keep it tight.  After the floor was done we started piping the in floor heat. We accidentally broke the  insulation around the water heater which is why it’s taped. We put some unions off of the pump in case it fails. We use the furnace to get the house up to temp while the floor is heating up but once everything is up and running the furnace never kicks on. I was trying to figure out how I wanted to control the system and was trying to ask lipripper questions but he has a patent on his so he couldn’t really answer.  What I ended up doing was running 5v from the arduino board to the thermostat. I then ran a wire from the thermostat to my relay board. The relay board I am using  closes the circuit when it gets 5 volts. So when the thermostat calls for heat 5 volts is allowed to pass through the thermostat back to the relay board closing the circuit that I have wired to the hydronic pump. You could use any relay for this just have to pick the voltages that you have available in your fish house. So I’m not really sure how lipripper did his but that is how I did mine and it works.  The whole in floor heat system fits under the front couch. I call this the mechanical room since all the moving parts are under this couch. We have the hydronic system, the hydraulic pump to raise and lower the fish house and our batteries. Only have the one battery in this picture but we have one battery for our hydraulics and two 6v gold cart batteries wires in series for everything else. The two 6v batteries are charged by the converter and the single battery is charged by a one bank minnkota  on board charger.
