- May 3, 2005Harry,
I am fine ... fortunately ... and I was reluctant to "tell my story"
especially to you and Mike and Roderick. I am humbled by the
experience and did not expect to receive much respect from the group
for appearing to be one of the "3 stooges".
I have 7 years of college, FAA airframe and powerplant licenses and a
BS in Industrial Maintenance Technology.
I'm really not an idiot nor a nerd... yet I was still IGNORANT in my
start up. I hope that sharing my experience with the group will help
prevent injuries for other start-ups using distillers and new
distillers as a reference to the hobby.
