Cool

hello from Virginia..unfortunately...GO MIZZOU!


Hey Dudes (and lady dudes)

My name is Brodie and I'm in the Navy. Stationed in Newport News, VA., but living in Portsmouth, VA. I was a carpenter before I joined the Navy, and still try to keep my hands in it.

I'm pretty handy with most things around the house. I like to build furniture out of recycled items. (I'm working on a video game couch made out of the rear seat of a 96 Chevy Astro)

I just bought a 60 year old house about 6 months ago and have been tearing things down ever since. I need this site to help with Electrical and HVAC problems!!! Anybody know anything about tankless water heaters?

This site rocks. 220/221 and some other individuals in the Electrical Forum helped me restore power to my bathroom fan, living room ceiling fan, and doorbell. . . .seriously.

Sammy...I know right..you gotta go through a tunnel to get anywhere in any direction. Sometimes two...why does everybody slow down at the tunnel?

Depot. The Astro seats are ridicuously comfortable. I actually have 2 sets of seats from two different vans. Both sets have the short one with the arm rest and the long one that seats 3. My buddy uses one at his bachelor pad constantly.

I think they slow down since most people have a nautral aversion to driving into a hole that is disapearing into the water!

We used to use Astro's as fleet vehicles where I work and I remember them being pretty comfortable.

Hey Brodie, have ridden quite a few ships in my career, all out of Norfolk, they treated us well. Hope the remodeling doesn't end up building a house within a house haha. Good luck on it.
