    Ex wife's long-haired miniature Dachsund was MOST UNhappy that he had to compete with her new husband for attention.

    Sunnovabitch must have crossed his legs for several days to build-up ammunition, then laid a monstrous great TRIPLE-HEADER TURD standin' tall - right square in the center of MY pillow, King sized bed, then stood there head-up PROUD and lookin' me straight in the eye every bit as defiant as that Spartan f***er whacking the Persians at Thermopylae - daring me to do a damned thing USEFUL about it any sooner than the end of days!

    She.. is scolding him.. as if he gave the least damn.. while I....?

    ... was laffin' FAR too damned hard to even be angry!

    Once he figured out I appreciated a Dog's idea of cross between a hard-core Union Brother with Seniority's Grievance filing ... and a practical joke....

    "VOTE WITH YOUR ASS!"

    ....we got on famously, too!

    You'd have to know dogs!

    Four-legged or otherwise. Or at least a Steelworker's Local.

    "The HELL they cannot!"
    My shorthair shakes her head making her ears flap, sounds like a hell of a coptor, then lays down followed by a big sigh when she wants covered, she stands by the motorcycle and barks when she wants to take a ride, she squeeks when we are at work more than 8 hours. They can comunicate and when they finally get us trained they are too soon gone.

    I see that you are werking with the tin off - so not even a salamander to keep the chill off.

    We got snow a day or two ago here. Beautiful this afternoon, 55* lots of sun. If the weather guesser is right the never ending rain starts in the morning. Just after it was almost dried up, wouldn't you know.

    Well. I don't need THAT much air, but I was already thinking of manifolding TWO smaller compressors rather than one larger one.

    This rig makes sense to me, as it also delivers resilience against "single point of failure".

    Same again my multi-idler RPC and stagger-starting, etc.

    Bit of planning, these advantages need not cost a great deal.
    You need an Amish set up (they use compressed air for everything including pumping water from a well)

    large (1000 gallon or so) propane tank re-used as air storage, hand crank lester pitter diesel powered compressor.

    Bury the tank in the back yard....

    My Pa used an old 100# propane tank for a portable air tank. Had it for years and the stink never went away.

    She sent off for that ancestory DNA test a while back, I asked her why as I already knew hers, when she asked how I told her that after 30+ years I figured it out on my own. She is half rattlesnake, half Apache, half Commanche, half Irish, and a bit of mixed European.
    She is a very spirited, ornery, cantankerous, strong willed red head, but I ain't said anything about her I haven't said to her. We have worked side by side since the late 80's, sometimes when we get home from work she tells me what an asshole her boss was and I tell her the secretary was a bit bitchy but we get over it pretty quick, it is likely than no one else would put up with either of us.

    Some folks like that air that you have to bite off a chunk, chew it up, spit out most of the water then try to breathe it.

    North fork on the east side of the mountains where the river turns west, a little north of the town of Salmon. Riggins is on the west side where the Salmon river turns north towards Orifino. Both neat places, but I'd say Kustomizer got the better end of the deal in North Fork.

    Riggins is on the west side, we are right near the Montana border but both are just north of the 45th parallel, it is likely about 75 miles for a crow but 300+ by road

    We do, it used to be that way at our place in California too but between a forest fire and the dope industry moving in it left. We had a 6.5 earthquake near here ( Idaho ) about a month ago, about an hour later a friend called and told me that California was so screwed up that even the earthquakes were moving to Idaho.
