Work In Progress
For a whole year, starting in March of 2015, I worked on the SS America non-stopped. I limited my entertainment excursions, ate dinner in my car on my way home from work. All to save time. I was just that determined to get this thing done and out of my house. It was starting to be like an uninvited guest.

Below are all my facebook updates that I posted starting from present going to back to March 2015. During that whole year, I added over 140,000 toothpicks to the upper sections of the ship. My original estimate was 3 months to completion. I was about 9 months late. It is a real toothpick timeline!
