And Lift Off!

After a strong push to get things assembled and ready last weekend and the past few days things are starting to fall into place, literally!

There is welding that keeps going on, and angle grinding that is still happening everyday.Every day we have at least one part of the Shack that gets finished and put on the trailer. Little by little the Vat Shack progressively is getting [...]
