    So I just got the phone call this morning. I am the new Manager of a 4 Bay shop. It has 3 lifts, lazer alignment equipment, drill press, sand blasting cabinet, wheel balancer, over head engine lift/ hoist, a brake lathe, and a bunch of other stuff.. It is the auto hobby shop on the Marine Corps base. I dont de service unless a customer needs help, I am free to work on my own vehichles.. I am totally stoked! I will get pics as soon as I can

    The hobby shop at Pendleton was a boon to young, thin-walleted Marines, both those that lived on base and also to those that didn't. It was a very cool facility a couple of decades ago, and doubtless even cooler now.

    this base is In Barstow CA... so yeah SOCAL. There is a Marine Corps Logistics base here. It only has 120 Marines, But it is also open to the 5000+ civilian workers on base.
    My boss said I have free rain to do whatever I want with the place. This means when you guys go out to Calico to wheel and throw some rounds down range, you can come out here a prep/ fix the rigs, maybe ill cool up some grub or something..

    Yep I know that base. We get a lot of AERP items shipped from there. Isnt it almost across the "street" from the ghost town?

    So you're at the main base and not the Yermo annex?
    Do you know Mr. Scott? His is the yard up against the eastern flank of Elephant Mtn.
