To my southwest forum buddies, I'm checking in here with a n update.

8 months ago, my wife and I decided to move from our tract home in Valencia (of 24 years) to the rental unit we had bought 5 years ago over in Newhall. Kind of did a flip flop...as the Valencia house is now our rental.

So this Newhall property is on a half acre. Room to spread out for sure. And one day build a real mans garage. :-)

For now though, the move has been a long process since we litterally had to extracate ourselves from 24 years of being packed in.

But we've been here about a month now, and we're getting settled in. There are 100+ things to do (fix its) but I've been focusing on one at a time and knocking them out.

This weekend, I finally got the 2 car garage set up so I can find tools, get the Nomad inside, etc. Here's some pics. Built that workbench and upper cabinets from craigslist stuff. Same withe metal racks. Lifesaver...as there isn't much rooom in a 18 x 20 garage. But now I can find tools and get the other projects done quickly. (rather than hunting in boxes for tools.)

Some pics.



See you all at CFAC. Neither of my old cars will be roadworthy, but I'm coming for the day to hang out and be inspired.

Tony beat me to the punch(line). I must be too.
Paul, the place looks good, coming together nice.
I've only been here 23 years and need to do the same.
