May 18, 1980.
I was almost 10 yrs old when Mt St Helens blew, 42 years ago today.

My grandparents collected ash from Mt St Helens. It ranges from silt like ash that fell in Portland, Oregon, where I lived, to the course pumace found closer to ground zero.

I've had the vials of ash with me always, rubber banded together and stashed.
I 3D printed a topo map of Mt St Helens, designed & printed a rack to hold the tubes, secured the print in a nice frame and here we are.

Watching "Beverly Hills Cop" at the hotel and because I'm in the middle of a "Breaking Bad" re-watch, this clicked.

Had a visitor today. If not for the dark spots, little gecko buddy would have gone completely unnoticed.

First big print done on my

Still had to print it rrrreeeeaaallllllly slow (1/2 speed) and at top of the heating range, but it printed perfectly with no restarts.
