12,204 slides in these little aluminum frames. This was the •last• airequipt cartridge that I will •ever• unload. Done this stage. .

I’ve been learning all about the history of slide film over the past week or two. There was a period where Fuji introduced and inexpensive replacement for Kodachrome film. The new product initiated a “race to the bottom” on film prices even though Kodak had what was still a superior product. This eventually led to the introduction of Ektachrome film, but disrupted Kodak production anyway. The new Fuji product was indeed cheaper, but as you can see from the photo, the two bottom rows have severely deteriorated over time. It’s a good reminder that focusing on product price alone is neither a good business, nor a good purchasing method.

Using antique equipment built by an extinct company to sort photographic slides (an obsolete medium) made by yet more extinct companies (Kodak, Mortifee Munshaw, Pakon). I’m in awe of the technological progress that’s been made in photography over the last 20 or 30 years.
Also a little surprised at how little the editing work flow has changed with the advent of digital photo. :)

Culling family photos today. This is a job I’ve dreaded for years. At last count there were roughly 15,000 slides to sort through. Thankfully, I’ve brought in a ringer that knows far more about them than I do. .

So this happened on Sunday. I don’t tend to featured photos of the back of the motorhome, but there used to be a motorcycle hanging here.

While it was sitting at the transmission shop over the weekend, somebody cut the locks (plural) and stole the motorcycle off the back of the old #96Bounder. This was a pretty low blow, and made for a very expensive week. The transmission alone is a $4000 hit, and to replace the uninsured motorcycle is probably another $2500 that I can’t really justify spending at the moment. So, a huge lesson learned, and a word to the wise. If you’re leaving your #Rig at a repair facility, storage yard, or any other place where there aren’t people around constantly, strip down any valuables and store them somewhere securely. Hopefully you can benefit from my experience. – – – #RVLiving #RVLife #Full-TimeRV #LifeOnTheRoad #RVRepairs #rvtravel #SoloTravel #SoloTraveler #InsultToInjury #Knoxville #Tennessee

So, this happened last week. After several days of the transmission getting progressively more cranky, it completely gave up on me as I tried to limp it down to Knoxville for repairs.

This is one of the downsides of life in an RV. The old #96bounder has been down for a week, and though I’m thankful to have had a week in the dorms as @arrowmont_school, and the start of another week of accommodation with my people here in Knoxville, being out of house and home seriously impacts what little sense of normalcy I have when I’m on the road.

As you’ll see in the next post, leaving your belongings in the care of others is not always a wise idea. — #RVLiving #RVLife #Full-TimeRV #SoloTravel #LifeOnTheRoad #RVRepairs #TransmissionFailure

Just annealed a $40 chunk of silver to continue yesterday’s cloud project. Nothing like diving in head first with a new skill to learn in a hurry!

Finished piece. Just a bit of practice with creating geometric shapes. Hammered edges are a poor appropriation of @raissabump’s folding technique. I was curious to see how it works. Hers is beautiful; you should definitely take a peek to see how it’s really done! – – –

Super stoked to be back @arrowmont_school for the Basically basic metals course with @raissabump. My first test piece in brass is on the bench and ready to start cutting! Looking forward to another week in the beautiful #smokymountains and in the studio with some incredibly talented and lovely people! – – –

Annnnnd, done! After a week of intense studio work @arrowmont_school, I’ve three pieces complete and one that’s going to be on hold until I can get some more aggressive tools to remove a large chunk of material.
I want to say a huge word of thanks to @deangallison and @firenationgallery (Mr. Matt Paskiet) for their guidance and dedication to making this such an incredible class. I’ve learned a tonne and I’m looking forward to continuing this exploration! – – –
