Sorry,

I played flog today (golf spelled backwards). Played might not be an accurate term.....

Funny thread. I laughed my butt of at SJ's answer.
Ken - I'm giving away 5 lbs of moth infested flour to the winner, webs and all!
Dave - George feels over 60 somedays!

I kinda thought that the 40s was the domebuilding eras of our lives. It's a bell curve, no doubt. It might be fun to break it down further someday.

I haven't started mine yet; but should within the next 4 or 5 weeks. But by the time i'm done with it I'll be almost dust.

I know the poll is closed, but I'm in my 20's, so that's at least 1 person. I started in July/August and hope to be done by year's end.

We're getting the youth vote! :-)

Way to go Amber. I was in my 40s.

So why is the poll closed. Seems like on we would want to keep open forever, or is that not possible?

Personally, I am bordering the downhill to dust line

Personally I always liked this poll... because it started just before I hit one of those zero birthdays

You're right Travis, it'd be fun if it were still open and kept popping up again from time to time.

I'm glad to see so many over 50 building their ovens. I'm still 48 (barely!) and I'm thinking this will be the last big, hand built "project" I'll be doing. It's been years since I built my patios and re-roofed or tiled by bathroom floor (20+ years ago). And this 42" WFO is completely different than anything I've done. I'll be too busy baking bread and pizza to do anything else.

Older or young, everyone I've read on this site inspires. To build something so similar to what they were building in Pompeii or elsewhere 2000 years ago makes you feel attached to history, people and the work they put in to what they did to feed themselves and others. Good food, well made, is so awesome!
