    Nice, do you intend/need to ventilate the space?

    I used louvered vents for the soffit areas, plus some undercut under the door, so i'm hoping that will be enough. If not i'll make some through wall vents.

    It'll get warm in there, but you should be okay.

    I hope. I know the compressor does something like 24cfm at 175psi. Theres a way to calculate the needed net free area, but i'm way to lazy for that.

    Math is hard. It won't be running non-stop, so it has time to cool. Even tools like a cut-off wheel will take a while to drain the tank. Especially if you're the only one using it.

    Agreed. It takes a while for it to kick on with normal tools. But, i do want a blasting cabinet and that will make it run at like a 75% duty cycle based on what it did at the old shop.

    Still think you'll be okay. And if it's not, you can open the door and let it air out.

    Very true. The door works great, believe it or not. I'll have to keep an eye on it at the beginning.

    Not to jump in.. Many moons ago, we put one of those outdoor thermometers in the closet with the air compressor to keep an eye on when in use during the summer months. today, you could get one of those cheep wireless deals and hang the temp sensor in the room, with the display on the wall in the garage. just remember to label it compressor room for the guy that looks at in January and thinks it's 80* outside.

    So i have access to hobo monitors for temp, humidity, pressure, etc. We use them for diagnostic work. My plan is to install them and see what happens when it runs at a high duty cycle. If changes are needed then i'll know for sure. I could use a thermostatic switch to bring in fresh air to.

    Edit: maybe they make a thermostatic and/or pressure activated ventilation source.

    Cool deal. I know you have already shingled the roof for the closet. but if it comes down to it.. One of those roof powered vents with the adjustable thermostat. Can find them all day at lowes or home depot.

    managed to get something to give me the bubbles on the rear while unloading the trike in my own ditch....

    Peters Mill Run (PMR) Crew for Wednesday?? @Tiny's Taco @the.sight.picture @samer312 @Hafaday

    Off all day and @the.sight.picture is around the corner from me. Closest person from this board that is to PMR is @PyritePirateBill but only by 5 mins =). We could do a morning run so everyone can disperse and run their daily routine afterwards. This is a beginner "trail" and can be run without airing down etc for newbies like me. Details are here: https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/gwj/recarea/?recid=73883

    googleearth_aefMInlJ2y.jpg
    I personally like to enter from the Fort Valley side of the trail and then cross over to Taskers Gap and then run it back to Fort Valley. Didn't buy my annual so would need to stop for a daily permit or annual. Not sure what the current conditions are; believe there is also rain in the forecast for Wednesday so could by a mudd run.


    As far as Culpeper/Madison; most of these are in Madison it seems:

    I had never been to any of them Bluff Mountain, Quaker Run, Blakey Road?

    Bluff Mountain Rd is in Rapidan WMA and the left marker on the map.
    Blakely Ridge is from here: http://core4x4.org/blakely-ridge-road/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJ7IG96jzHo
    Quaker Run Rd is the marker across Criglersville and was mentioned by the guy that sold me the Trike; its an ultra short drive and has 2 water crossings.

    Willing to hit those if others want give it a run after we do PMR thoughts?

    That's a horrible idea. What time?
    Nice Bubbles...

    I tried to find PMR, and made so many wrong turns trying to find a permit, I gave up. (I worked the night before and didn't get much sleep, the fog of midnights...) So I'm in. Tell me where to meet you and I'll be there. And I am trying now to get the night off. If I do, I'm in all day.

    Water crossings: I don't have the rear diff breather relocation done yet, will I need it for the other trails? I have it, just isn't done yet.

    I’d be down for something Wednesday, might even have my wife bring out the wrangler. I’ve done Peters Mill in the taco and the Jeep and it’s bone jarring if you don’t air down haha. We’ve done Blakey ridge in the Wrangler and it was a nice ride, few tight spots but I’d imagine a stock Tacoma could make it through as long as it’s not washed out bad. If we go there someone should bring a chainsaw. The pic below is where we entered, the second yellow circle is where the trail starts and the last is where it ends. If you make a left you’ll drive into big meadows on skyline DR, make a right and you end up at RT 670.
