Learn to weld aluminum: I have learned to TIG weld steel, including 1" x .062 wall tubing from which I built my land speed bike, but my welder is only DC pulse. I purchased a new Lincoln TIG 200 Square Wave welder, but it's in Colorado and I can't go there till they open the borders.

Improve my machining skills: I have a Rung Fu RF30 mill drill and a small 8x20 Asian lathe, so I'm limited. My friend Doug in Colorado sold his CNC shop but maintained a computerized Bridgeport (manual "Z" axis), but again, he's in Colorado and I can't get there. So I intend to learn to use what I have here in Nova Scotia.

Finish a book I've started on "How to make a slow bike fast" I've been working on this for a couple of years and I'm up to over 150 pages on MSWord, including lots of photos, but I haven't got a clue on how to get it published.

That should keep me busy thru my 74th year on this Earth!


Oh yes, did I mention another trip to the Bonneville Salt Flats to try for another record?

To work more paying jobs and to work harder on getting these projects done... Refocus on smaller goals so nothing gets overwhelming.

Beyond that....... ???
No expectations, no pressure.
My heart and my mind are open.
Wishing the very best to all in 2021.
