Delightful Guest

We really enjoyed having jchrise with us and would be happy to host him any time. What an amazing rig he has built for himself - truly a marvel. Hope to see him again when he is in the back in the area.

Great guest!

We enjoyed hosting jchrise for a couple of nights. He has really built a beautiful and practical rig for himself! We shared many interesting conversations, and he would certainly be welcome back anytime.

A thoroughly enjoyable visit

We loved having both jchrise and Lily stay with us. He is indeed a master craftsman and we got plenty of tips and ideas on practical matters. His rig is by FAR the nicest owner-built one I've seen, and he generously showed us all around, under and through it while explaining his thought process in the design and execution. Lots of great conversations, most definitely welcome back any time.
