Those were some tough people back then, wish I could go back for a while and see some of my kinfolks from those days long ago, moms side came over on the Mayflower and dads side came from England in 1721 finally wound up marrying in to the Cherokee and Choctaw in my tree limb and had great grandparents that grew up to there younger teenage lives on a reservation, would be cool to be able to go back in time a little at a time and see how things really were for the early settlers of this great land, I'm sure Hollywood shows has never done it justice.
I'm convinced that I was born about 150 years too late......however, with that being said, I sure like a lot of the modern conveniences that we have now!!!
I also feel that Ken's 'gamble' is extremely low risk. Seeing some of KC's builds have provided me assurance that he does it right.
Good luck in your adventure to pick up your new treasure, Ken!
