Hair cut needed
I was getting a bit bushy and have been thinking of a hair cut for about a week now. I got the tools out to do the job. Scissors on the hair and an electric hair trimmer on the beard seems to work pretty good without too much trouble.
On my last trip, one of the windshield wipers got stuck in a rope holding my kayak on the roof and they stopped. I tried to get them going again, but wasn’t able to while on the trip when I tried, so I needed to check out the system. At first, I couldn’t get them to work, but playing around with the old switch, I finally figured out I was trying to make them work on the wrong setting. You’d think the first notch would be low and the second notch would be high, but it turned out to be the other way around. These old style wipers on old rigs never did work as good as the modern stuff. These ones are a bit slow, but slowly, they do the job. The low setting usually doesn’t work.
Good to have them working as trying to repair them under the dash is a real pain.
Kayak loading bar
I took the bar off my old car and was trying to figure out a way to put it on the newer car. I had to cut a notch in the plastic first for the bar. Then I hunted around for some clamps that were large enough to go around the bar and the car’s cross bar. I was only able to find one clamp that was large enough, so I put it together with that one for now. I think this might work for loading and unloading the kayak, but I think the car’s paint might get a bit scratched if I’m not real careful.
