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! – – –
