Hooking wires up
I was slow getting it going today. I needed a nap right after I got up but that’s ok as I only had a few things I wanted to get done on the van today.
Rats nest of wires
After that I tackled this rats nest of wires using tie wraps to make it look neat and get the wires out of the way. I also had to hook up a power wire to the temp gauge. Glad to have this area all tidied up.
Computer hooked up
So I have most stuff hooked up, but need to recheck it all.
Engine with wires
Filling the radiator
I wasn’t going to do the radiator fluid today, but I had the time so filled it up with fluid.
Need that new gas line
I still have a few things to do before I try to start it, but no hurry as I’m waiting for the better gas line I ordered to arrive in a couple days.
I’ll wait on hooking up the battery
I thought about hooking up the battery but the day was late and I thought tomorrow would be soon enough just in case something sparks and goes wrong.
It was evening when I closed up the van and had a short nap.
Giving trees a drink
Then I went out and put the sprinkler on the two young apricot trees. The bucket measures how many inches the sprinkler puts out so I know how much I’ve watered. Otherwise it’s a guess and not always good for the trees especially if they don’t get enough water.
Getting the chickens to roost
I went by the chicken pens and closed off the area where the younger chickens usually roost on the ground as I want them to start using the high roosts as I think it’s healthier for them. I’ve been doing this for a few nights now and they are starting to get the idea but not all of them. It’s still early so when I go out to shut them up I hope most of them are up high or I’ll put them there.
