Chopper Moving - Fun at Work

Today we did something a little different at work. Rick and I had to pack up the company chopper and get it ready for transport. This wasn’t an easy thing to do since it has been displayed on the 4th floor of the company headquarters for the last couple of years. Making matters worse was the fact that it doesn’t fit on the elevator with its front forks attached. We had to remove the frontend and then reassemble it on the first floor. After some grunting and pulling we managed to get it loaded.

From FGM, Inc.’s website -

FGM will be donating its custom chopper to the American Freedom Foundation at the 8th Annual American Freedom Festival being held in Fairfax, VA at the GMU Patriot Center on November 12, 2011. Currently displayed in the lobby of FGM’s Reston location, the 2005 Venom ProStreet blue and silver chopper was built from a Big Bear Choppers motorcycle kit by employees in honor of the company’s former president Bob Feeley, and has become a proud symbol of team building and hard work for the organization.

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.
