Why own a Flamethrower? Because you can!

It finally arrived! We were one of the first to pony up the funds for The Ion Production Team's IndieGoGo campaign for their XM42 Handheld Flamethrower. This crazy piece of hardware has awesome giggle potential; we couldn't stop laughing from the moment we squeezed the trigger.

We opted for the powdercoated version and we think it turned out fantastic. We couldn't be happier. After a trip to the local Walmart for some butane and siphoning some gas out of the hearse we would soon be terrorizing the neighborhood.

We are lucky enough to have a large driveway. The flamethrower shoots well over 25 feet so you need to make sure you aren't going to light anything on fire that you don't really intend on igniting.

The Ion Production Team has done a great job at making this as safe as they can.  It's up to you not to do anything stupid with it.

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.
