High fog, but nice
There was high fog over Jenner this morning as I put my boat in the water. I thought it might burn off eventually, but it never did.
Someone’s shouting across the river
As I paddled along, I could hear someone shouting something across the river, but for a long time I couldn’t see anyone, but I finally realized he was shouting Bob, so I started across the river to see who it was. I can barely see someone over there walking along the river’s edge.
It’s John the hunter and fisherman
It turned out to be John the hunter and fisherman stopped by to shoot the bull for a bit which we did. John had just come from an old ranch in Cazadero where he was deer hunting without any success, but he said he had a nice hunt just the same.
Headed for the muskrat nest area
Hard to identify harbor seals
Noisy crows land
From there, I paddled across the river to the boat ramp and put my boat on the car and went on home for a nap.
Installing the new electric fan on the van
After a short nap, I went outside and started working on the van projects. I needed to make some mounting ears for the new electric fan to mount it inside the fan shroud.
New metal ear mounts
This is what the electric fan looked like with the new metal ears added which I will fit inside the fan’s shroud. The fan is sixteen inches in diameter and only 3 and a quarter inches thick and is supposed to kick out 3000 cfs which is quite good for a V8 engine.
The van will have two fans
I need to get some clip nuts to install it, so I didn’t finish the job yet. But I did work on setting up the electrical wiring for it.
I will put this unit on a switch so I can operate it manually, or automatically with a thermostat or just turn it off if I don’t want to use it. The main reason I want a manual over ride is so I can flip it on for a few seconds to get rid of any critters that I hear under the van at night. The noise it makes seems to be very effective for scaring the heck out of critters as I’ve used a smaller fan before to do this.
I also did some painting of the heater parts so I will be ready when I get the new heater core, which is supposed to be ready tomorrow.
That was my day for a nice one.
