I love me some Carter Oosterhouse!! Seriously......this guy has waaaaayyyy too much time and money on his hands. I'd gladly help him dispose of some. Motorcycles he doesn't ride? And hasn't even started them up? Looks like the guy is single too. So apparently all the money hasn't bought "love." I wonder if he wants to adopt some adult kids....LOL.

Wonder what a good cross wind would do.. I could see one going down under the ground for RV storage, but that's another 5 million. Think I could spend it more wisely. Anyone want me to help spend their money?

No I am not jealous, but what is this guy doing with 4 nomes and everything else he has brought simply to hoard?

I guess I'm with you. Just all seems a bit presumptious and egotistical. Just because you "can" doesn't mean you "have" to.

True that. Wonder what he pays in property taxes for four homes? Egads! He made it a point of saying everytime he pushes the button for the elevator it costs him $25. So I'm thinking he likes to flaunt it just a tad....but you're right, whatever trips his trigger.

I don't believe his claim of $25 per button push.

Unless my calculations are off, using my electric rate of $0.11/kWh, and assuming it takes 5 minutes to raise it, that is approximately 2.7 Mega Watts of power, which equates to 3.6 MILLION HP!!

I don't think so...unless my math is off somewhere.

It's all pretty cool none-the-less!

EDIT: My math was off by a factor of 1000, so it's 3600 HP. That seems more reasonable, but still, it shouldn't take that much HP to raise 250k lbs.

Well considering this guys ego, he probably put in his own electrical generating plant as he probably is not satisfied just using the same electricity that you and I would be
