    well ITs been an insane month here on mt hood OR... first we had a wind storm with 100 mph winds, blowing down 100 or 200 year old trees, onto cars and houses on my little dead end street, it took out the power,,, lucky me, not my house,shop,or classixc cars, but it was tense... then even thou my power was gone from a tree PGE turned off the power due to wilfires in the area, then the fires got so close we wher evacuation level 1 then 2 and one block away was level 3 , with the sheriffs knocking on doors and evacuating, we are a small tight night groop down here and it showed who was down for the comunity of maybe 35 people on this dead end road, I fixed 11 generators in 4 days, and didnt charge a penny, the plumber down here brought fire hoses and valves home, and so on, a few of the guys said we wouldnt leave even if level 3 was enected, there has been lloting and fires started in the evacuated area just to the south, we would protect the homes best we vould until the minute we had to bail from the fire, I founf it really defined thouse who where eger to run off with there prized posestions, and those who where going to stay and team up for the benifit off all, (minor rant) anyways as It lasted well over a week or two, and it has now callmed down and we have poewer (and internet) today, Im exhausted like never before, but ever time I went in and out of the house I saw all my cs650 build parts on the kitchen table and thought geee I sure hope I still get to buid that, it was suposed to be running for the spring opener,lol what was I thinking, an unfortunate string of events put it on hold, and I didnt return to it yet.... but for those wondering what happened, well yeah Im back, gonna try to start posting to get into the mood to build it, it reallyu only needs asembled at this point,, wish me luck, or better yet wish me motivation lol
