One thing I like about living in CA is that there are always flowers blooming, even in our dry desert mountains. NEVER got used to living in the frozen North (WI, ID, VT, NY) 'tho I lived there for most of my adult life. Once hunting season was over, I always wanted to be somewhere else until trout season began. Like Mexico, Sicily, CA or FL!
Am very interested in the idea of camillia oil on gunstocks, including handgun grips! And because you do stock work, you are just the man to keep us informed. Do you have enough camillia plants to harvest the oil? Is it available commercially?
If, at a later date you try it and report it on the Forum and I don't respond, them PM me please!
