Hey Guys,
My wife and I arrived home to Visalia last night around 6pm from our trip to India after almost 48 hours of traveling. It feels so good to be back home!
Being away a month usually means a bit of reverse "culture shock", but after 4 of these trips this time I'm not experiencing it for some reason...
I got my guitar right out last night and played it for a few minutes until I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer, slept 10 hours. I'm hoping I don't have to fight too much jet lag. It was 90 degrees in Goa the whole time we were there. It is 50 degrees here.......my shop is cold, but I can't wait to start my next build. Even though I could participate some here on the forum from India, it stills feels like I am again "home"!

Hey Kevin -- Glad you're home safe and sound and had a good visit with your family and new granddaughter! Now get back in that shop and build another beautiful guitar! :-j

Welcome back Kevin, I HATE "Jet Lag"..it took me a week to get over our last trip to Germany to see our Kids..so thankful they are again "Statside"...but I don't think I'd ever go again...traveling to that extent is just too stressful today! Then...maybe it's the years tacked on to my body! :)

Hey Kevin, welcome back! 50? I'd kill for 50 right now. It was 0 the other day.

Sidenote...I have one of those lttle infrared propane tank heaters I use to knock the edge off the cold in the garage. I can usually keep it at 45 if it is 20 or better outside. The other day, it started "belching". DOn't know what else to call it....

it was just hissing along like always, when it coughed up a 3' jet of flame. Scared the crap out of me. Then it did it again. I was running over to turn the gas off when it did it again, this time a 5' jet of flame that actuall knocked it back a few feet and rolled it over. I have no idea what caused it, but it blew a hole out the back of the heater cone. Time to get a new one.

Glad yer back, hope to see some pictures....I hear India is beautiful.

Ken, 3 -5 foot flames in what is basically a wood shop, you got lucky that you still have a shop. You may want to look for a different type of heater. I know that's easy to say and that there are only a few options, but I would be very hesitant to buy the same heater again. Also if you don't already have one, you should buy a fire extinguisher.

Kevin, welcome back. My daugther went to India for 17 days in early November. She had a great time and enjoyed her trip.

Just a few pictures, don't want to bore you, of the India we see when we go there. The beaches in Goa are very nice, tourist areas. The mountains are jungles! Enjoy.

Kevin -- Welcome Home! Neat pics -- I particularly like the photo of the water buffalo relaxing with the people nearby. I guess a water buffalo gets treated pretty well there?

The beach looks nice too -- are those specks near the water's horizon para-sails or UFO's? (Or specks on my computer screen?)

Bill,
Yeah that cow is sitting in the path up to a very nice beach side resturaunt. That is just how it is there, the cows get to go where ever they want, they were even lounging on the beach too.
Those are parasails in the beach picture. Goa is a tourist state with most of it along the coast line, lined with nice beaches. We managed to spend a couple of days at the beach. There are mostly foreigners there this time of year, and some like to sun bath topless......didn't figure you all wanted to see pictures of that!

By the way, while there I stopped by a place called Jungle Guitars at Baga Beach, which is about 20 minutes from where my daughter lives. A guy from the UK named Chris started up about 10 years ago giving guitar making classes there, right in the jungle. I was able to catch him there and chat for a few minutes. He had one student building at the time who was gluing in his kerfing. If you haven't seen it before, take a look at jungleguitars.com

Kevin, I'll bet home does feel good after being gone so long. At least you went home to 50 degrees. You could be in Michigan where the temps have been in the twenties!
