Haircut, Van Repairs and Making Jelly Rolls

Friday March 23, 2018 Queen Canyon Road Kofa NWR Arizona

Rest up day

Today I planned to hang around the van at camp in Queen  Canyon on the Kofa.

I started out giving myself a haircut.haircut1

 

After a break I checked the van’s engine fluids. checks2

 

I added a bit of coolant to the radiator and the oil was fine.engine3

 

Checked out the noisy shock

Then I got some other tools out and checked out the  shock that had a loose mount on the way in to see just how bad it was.

Here’s the bad shock covered in oil as it’s leaking.shock4

 

Personally I think this shock is a bit too long in the body and may be hitting.oil5

 

Here’s the bottom mount bolt that I tightened on the way in the other day. The rubbers don’t look good so I’m gong to take it apart to check it out.rubber6

 

I got it apart.bolt7

 

This rubber bushing doesn’t look good, but it’s the only one I have so I’ll have to put it back on for now.bushing8

 

I put all the shock stuff back together as it will work for now.

Making bread dough

After cleaning up and taking a break I decided to make some bread type dough. I’ve had some flour and water making yeast for over a week now and it looks like it might work for bread so I used it in this dough.dough9

 

I made these rolls to fry up.rolls10

 

 

I used coconut oil to fry them up in my wok.fry11

 

I put the big rolls aside as I have plans for them. I ate all the little pieces which were good and the homemade yeast did well.rolls12

 

I took it mostly easy the rest of the day doing some reading and watching this little guy checking my camp site for anything edible.chippy13

 

Jelly rolls

Later in the evening I put my jelly rolls together. This is what happened to the rolls I made earlier today. I was saving some black berry jam Dominique gave me for Christmas for this. Yummmmmmmmmmmmm.jellyrolls

 

That was my day.
