Final Parts Shipment Arrives

I’d been waiting on some 1.09” spacers to arrive to assemble the independent rear suspension. Today a box arrived and it included the remainder of my back ordered parts, including the spacers. So only 2 months after I first received my kit, everything is here! That’s a better experience than I had anticipated.

Once again, I caught Emmy doing work. She snagged the spacers I’d been waiting for and decided they would better serve as lug nuts.

Gregg George Retirement

Today my good friend, Master Chief Gregg George, retired from the Coast Guard. Gregg was my leading Chief when I ran the Aviation Engineering Department at Sector North Bend. He helped me navigate nearly every challenge in that job and taught me so much about leadership. He is a wonderful human, father, and leader and I am so fortunate to have served with him. He asked me to snap pictures, some of which I am sharing below. Congrats Gregg!

A Trip Back Home

Today my family and I took a trip to my hometown of York, PA. It was the local St. Patrick’s Day Parade and my parents invited us up. The kids really enjoyed it! We made the most of the trip and met up with my friend, Spencer, and his family. I also checked in on my dad’s 1963 Triumph TR3B restoration. He’s getting really close to finishing!

Emmy Shows Interest and Gets Some Likes

I was looking for my youngest daughter, Emersyn (Emmy), and found her in the basement trying to do some assembly of her own. I shared this video on Instagram and it was reshared by Factory Five landing her over 5000 views!
