04.07.10 Breakfast update!
... my wife picked up some sausage, cheese, tortillas and picante sauce today.

I was thinking of doing some breakfast burrito's, such as egg, egg and cheese, or egg, cheese and sausage, in addition to the juice and pastries that you bring.

I have an ice tea maker, and will have ice tea available.

03.29.10: Breakfast is on the grill! We are working on farm fresh eggs and sausage Biscuits. Made to order, hot off the grill! We'll also have Coffee, Juice, Pastries and napkins....

Also, during lunch, bring your extra tools for the Trunk Tool Swap&Sale. This is a great place to sell that extra Unisaw or Oneway Lathe you've had stuck in the corner of your shop.

03.20.10:Ok Folks, time to sign up. Shops we have are Scott Smith and his awesome saw mill, Rob (me), HMH (Heath) with is awesome old restored iron, Bobby G who designs furniture and a new member and wood sculptor, Rich (richlife). Link to sign up is here.

Crawl Details

[FONT=&quot]I'm supposed to introduce myself here as the Crawl Boss. I don't do much bossing, that's the wife's job, crawling only happens when there's too much beer. (Is there such a thing as too much beer?) or in my jeep, which is up on jack stands at the moment. [/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]We're planning a Lee/Chatham county shop crawl. Looking for shops in Pittsboro, Sanford, New Hill, Apex(I know Apex is Wake county but it’s close) area willing to host a bunch of tool junkies for visits. [/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]Now I know you’re wondering why Geodesic Shop Crawl. Well my house is a geodesic dome house built about 25 years ago.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]My shop is in the basement. The wife has volunteered to host lunch. Nothing fancy, burgers and such. Plus her famous cheesecake squares. I will be updating this post as more information is available. That way we won’t have multiple posts to read.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]What is a Shop Crawl?[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Well, its fun! We tour Shops of those kind souls who have offered to host us.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]There is a published itinerary for the day, which we call a Crawl Package. It provides a mapped route and schedule to the days shops. We travel in a caravan from shop to shop.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]Depending on the Crawl, there may also be Demo's, Lumber Sales and Tool Swaps and more![/FONT]
