    Thumbs up Deep-N-Hock Acres Heads South....

    I'll keep it short and sweet..
    Karma wheel spins.. It spun right for Carrie and me.
    Put the ranch on the market. Took six days to sell.
    Packed it all up and moved back down to Ocala, FL.
    Going to take a while to set back up (if ever)...
    Life is good!

    Have the Ocala authorities been notified? BP

    I can attest that the authorities are at ease and Jeff and Carrie are doing well. Lots of "stuff" to get unpacked and organized, but help is always available for them! We're very glad to have them near!!!!!! Bill

    Wow!! I know this must be a "positive" move. No wonder there has been no intake update for me. No worries, I said I was in no hurry. I have seen some of your equipment and can only guess as to your move delicacies.
    Is this a lifestyle change Jeff? Florida is definitely a distance from Brooklett GA. Are we privy as to why the change?
    You know we all wish you luck in getting everything set up as you desire.
    Keep us updated as convenient. Any pics??
    Cheers, Bill

    Costs a lotta dough to move, especially if you're a DYI car guy. That said, if you can accomplish it & be better off, then that's great!

    We're now spending winters just west of Ocala near Inglis Fl and frequent car events in the area weekly

    No doubt we'll see you at one of these outings.....you are bringing the Yellow POS with you?

    I know they don't have internet service yet and Jeff is doing all his communicating via his phone, so give him a chance to get settled. He'll be back with us as soon as he can. Bill

    Thumbs up

    Back on the 'net! Woohoo!

    Moving is a pita, no doubt. Moving a shop quadruples the house issues.
    We used "Pod's" to move all of the house stuff, and some of the shop stuff.
    Had a local moving company near us in Brooklet move the furniture and 'pack' the Pod's (and all the stuff we boxed up).
    Had an Ocala moving company unload the house Pod's and grunt in the furniture.
    Still leaves all the boxes too schlep in and unpack (ugh).
    Brought the one horse (Chelsea) down last Tuesday. She's happy.
    Did a one day round trip yesterday and brought down the race trailer (personal Pod ) full of house stuff, including the piano.
    Still have to bring down the cars, tractors, yard equipment, Studebaker's, and milling machine(s).

    No rest for the weary

    Truth be told.. Yes.
    It is a lifestyle change, some good, some not so good. Aging gracefully is hard to do.
    But matching your lifestyle to the realities of life is also hard to do.
    My wife and I are facing some challenges that will affect things down the road, so getting things into place now makes sense.
    My only real surprise was the timing.
    The last two moves (corporately driven) took six months each to sell the ranch(es).
    This one took six days to sell, and the buyers wanted to close in two weeks.
    Whoaa... No way on that time frame.
    Changed the closing date to a month, and even that was almost impossible to meet (moving out the shop).
    But, we got it all done (thanks to some great neighbors and Studebaker friends)..
    Next.. Unpack, set up, and try to get back to normal...

    Why Ocala? We really do like it in Ocala. If you like horses.. This is a horse town.
    The airport only has one stairway truck for people, but has four stairway ramp trucks for horses.
    I think more horses fly in and out of Ocala than people <lol>

    Jeff,
    Now I've seen everything...
    The airport only has one stairway truck for people, but has four stairway ramp trucks for horses.
    Luck with finalizing of your move and finally settling down to your 'new normal".
    Keep us posted. If the "Black Car" is too much of an issue I have a pretty nice trailer which would head it north for a change of scenery.
    Cheers, Bill.

    Sounds like a lot of work in a short time, Jeff; better to do it now while you can. Congratulations and best wishes in the new digs.

    Thanks for all the updates. BP

    What I wonder & would worry about is weather, the bad kind... Is it worse or no difference to Georgia when the heavy storms comes?

    (On a Studebaker timeline related side note....)

    This piano is old... Very old. Abraham Lincoln was still alive when it was built.
    John M Studebaker had just come back into the family business, but the Studebaker Brothers Mfg. Co. had not yet been incorporated.
    Calvin Edwards built piano's and church organs in Portland Maine...
    This piano was built around 1864 (plus or minus a year or two). His factory burned down in 1866.
    The piano has been in my family since the 1930's. Sometimes called a 'square grand', or a 'box piano', or a 'coffin piano'..
    They were made to be able to be easily shipped (if you could ever imagine a piano as 'easy' to ship)

    Cool looking piece. I love the figure in the wood.
    During my college days, I sometimes worked for a furniture mover. I always hated to see a piano in the house.

    What a great piece. My wife plays and I listen. I always envy folks that have a long family history behind them. My grandparents came over on the boat to escape the revolution in Russia in early 1910 - 1920s, so I'm only a second generation American. I have no information past my grandparents.
    Take good care of that piano!

    Jeff,
    And I figured I had scored well to obtain an early 1930's full size (6 x 12) snooker table (5 pieces of slate weighing in at 450 lbs per unit) which pales in comparison to your family heirloom. Do you play? I love those legs from back when craftsmen were exactly that.
    Good luck in your ordeal of unpacking and sorting.
    Cheers, Bill

    When Jeff and Carrie have that piano all "assembled" and shined up, it is the most beautiful piano I've ever seen. Better than a Steinway grand and all the others I have seen or played. Now, as for tuning it, I'll not push it. I really love that piano Jeff!

    Thanks..
    It is all back 'together' for now. It was tuned once in the last 75 years.
    Didn't help. The 'tuner' did not know anything about IGN, or dwell, or anything
    .
    Sounded just as bad after the tune as it did before the tune.... Really
    .
    Only has an 85 key register, but it has three pedals.
    That dates it between 1862 and 1866 (when the factory burned down)

    My next challenge is to learn how to 'French Polish' both the piano, and the Edison Player.
    That will wait until this coming winter...

    Hey Jeff, you probably already know this, but when we restored our very old beautiful upright, we noticed that the adjustment "knobs" were wood into wood. We found an elderly blind gentleman there in Nashville, TN and he came out and tuned it. Amazing to watch, but it turned out so pretty sounding. After he finished, he told us that it would lose tune with weather and humidity due to the little wooden "knobs', but we never noticed if it did. Sold it years later, but when it comes to piano tuning, blind guys rule !

    The record player reminds me of a similar one that was in my family since new. I believe that my mother got it new in 1928. ISTR it as being a Columbia. It played well. I believe that it sold in my sister's estate sale, with a box of records, for $300.

    EDIT: In 1985.

    Well, I'd like to say the move is complete, but moves take a while...
    Still unpacking and still setting up each room.
    The shop? Don't ask. The house and the wife come first.
    But... (There's always a but..)
    As I was leaving the neighborhood a couple days ago, I saw this fence builder putting in new horse fencing.
    Immediately stopped, as he had a pretty big tractor with loader arms set as a forklift and a hydraulic post rammer built onto the side. We chatted for a short bit, and this afternoon he came by.
    Picked my Acer Milling machine off the trailer (parked behind my garage/future shop) and brought it up front.
    Set it down, scooped it up on the forks and set it inside the first bay.

    I am so unashamedly CASO... He moved it for a case of Busch Lite beer. Love this country!




    I'll move the milling machine later on, but it is good to have it "inside".
    One small step to get back to building intake manifolds, and other Stude stuff.
