This year we celebrated Drew & Jake's birthday at "Frankie's Fun Park" in North Charleston. Arcade, bumper boats, the "Drop Zone", racing karts ...
The boys got Crazy Carts for their birthday, which is also the first day of school. So they had a chance to play with them the weekend before...
We went to the keys; it was windy & rough so we mostly did touristy-stuff, including the new "Aquarium Encounters" in Marathon which is pretty cool.
We stopped by Animal Kingdom on the way up to Neptune Beach; Jake loved the hippo, Drew was more into the rides.
In Neptune Beach we made up for lost time, fishing 5 days in a row. The weather was great and the fish were hot; we tagged 2-3 every day, easily hitting Graddaddy's goal of 10 tags for the week. We also picked up 2 starfish, 2 stingrays, a big redfish, and saw lots of dolphins and other sea life.
3D Printed Fidget Spinners
I got these designs off of a site called http://www.thingiverse.com, where you can design templates and share them with the public, or download someone else’s. If you have a 3D printer, I highly suggest you use this site. I managed to find some designs and press the bearings and/or steel balls into them. Enjoy!

I am out of kits and will not restock Wiiceiver due to the lack of good wireless nunchucks available. I am working on Wiiceiver X, a replacement wireless handheld controller & receiver, and can hopefully release specs & instructions in the Spring.
If you have a 1.2.2 Wiiceiver (anything shipped before October 2016), skip to the bottom for a FREE UPGRADE KIT to software 2.0B4. You can also download the latest software and upgrade your own device at your convenience.
Introducing the wiiceiver! A drop-in "plug and play" replacement for a traditional RC receiver, designed for use on an electric skateboard. It has 2 standard 3-pin servo connectors (single ESC, dual ESC, or ESC + BEC) and a port for a Nintendo Wii Nunchuck.
... unfortunately all kits are sold out.

I am moving to a new hosting provider because the old one is raising rates and annoyed me. This was a good excuse to upgrade a lot of software too.
