Protection in Bed

The front of Line-X of Hagerstown's shop
Line-X is durable and good looking

I have had my new Ford F-150 truck for about 6 months now and it has been very handy as a parts vehicle. The bed was starting to get scratched up so I decided it was time to put some sort of protection in the bed. By far the best functioning and looking option is a spray-in liner. Line-X seems to have a good reputation so I looked up the closest dealer to Bubba's Garage and scheduled an installation time. I had the first appointment in the morning, 8:00 am, and the crew at Line-X of Hagerstown was already waiting when I arrived at 7:30. That in itself impressed me because most shops' workers struggle to be on time first thing in the morning. I chose a basic black liner (the photo is reflecting the blue of the truck) which set me back $500. They soon had my keys and I settled into a comfy recliner to watch some HGTV and read a book in their lounge. Two hours later I had my truck back. Another nice surprise; they had protected my interior with a seat cover and disposable floor mat. This isn't always the case for shops around here. The bed looked great and I was a happy camper once again.  The installation was an all around great experience.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
