2007 West - - - Idaho and Washington
This isn't Lake Lavon
My friend Roger King's place on Johnny Long Mountain, a few miles west of Sandpoint
Is Roger proud of his Irish heritage? Well . . .
Here comes the leprechaun of Johnny Long Mountain
He's been working on this great picnic area
And tree house
We roasted hot dogs and s'mores
One of Roger's many inventions
Some of the others
These are versions of rivet gun he developed. He calls it "The Main Squeeze"
Roger's workshop and the "poppy machine" he built. (No, not that kind of poppy)
Roger and I try to do a photo like this about every 10-15 years
I'm headed for the town of Rainier, to visit Zambuto Optical
Chuck (left) and Carl (right) make my telescope mirrors. Fredda and Joycelyn make sure they do it right.
Carl took me by a great local meat market to stock up for Poulsbo
The new glass machining operation
Diamond curve generating on a Pyrex mirror blank
One of the mirror blanks for my first run of 12.5" Teleports
I got my first look at the blank for my personal 20" Teleport before leaving for Poulsbo
Linda's building project is moving right along. I did my job (to stay out of the way) rather well I thought.
Her contract allows Linda to take hot tub breaks
She leaves Ursula is in charge
