Well I used to live in Ohio, so I can suggest getting a (very used and beat up by the dust devils) LX200 and sticking a brat in the focuser. Turn on the tracking and when the brat splits then turn it around and repeat. Self-draining and very eco-friendly, too. :D

We can haul a grill and have him swap places with Scott, saving us the embarrassment of being seen with him. :whistle:

Unless he brings the fried onions. :whee:


I'm not quite sure who Ron's insulting Jim, you or I? :poke:

I like the sound of fried onions though.....

Gary- I like your thinking!

I'm pretty sure we've left our mark on Zanesville and the Rix homestead! Luckily Erika and I haven't started any forest fires, not for lack of trying!

I thought my ears were burning! :lol:

The one thing that is more dangerous than me and matches, is Scott and me together with matches. Thankfully we've now got an outdoor spigot so next time Scott and the kids come over, we're well prepared! He's great for cooking duties, though. Man, I'd love to get him and Gary both over here at the same time. We'd be in dutch oven heaven!!!

Now Scott, about marking things..... :p

For those who think they hear the TOS stretching and straining, we're talking about his habit of walking around with chalk in his hand and a gleam in his eye.




No reallly...





Honest...

Funny thing, though, but this is what happened the last time Scott, Erika, and I were all in the same thread... :hmmmm:

But at least I'm getting in on the ground floor this time. Last time, I read something like 1000 posts in 3 hours. Whoosh, now THAT is scary!
