Starting off the day working away
I needed to finish up the painting on my new fence so I attached my new can holder to the can and got it done. Here’s the can with the holder mounted. This device safes your thumb and index finger from being real sore if you do much painting.
Cutting and welding rebar
His chain came off
Might as well go for a ride
At this point I was sitting around supervising and when he was almost finished I realized I could go on a ride, so I said I’d go with him back up in the hills if he didn’t go in any real steep stuff, so off we went for a couple hours of riding.
I rode my brother Mikes bike to help him keep the battery charged up. We had a nice ride and we mostly stayed out of the steep stuff, but not completely. At the end he asks me if I want to go down this trail I know is real steep at the bottom and I say no, so he says if we take this road we can come out in the middle and go up along the property line and I wouldn’t have to deal with that steep part at the bottom, so I say ok, let’s go and off we went, me following him.
That was quite a ride
Well, that road was just about as steep as the piece on the bottom. I kept the throttle on as much as I could and still stay on the road and bounced from one side to the other a bunch of times, but I made it to the top without falling over. Barry was at the top with a big smile on his face.
The bike performed well, except it has too much air in the tires and they tend to ride out on you so you have to watch it. Next time I will lower the tire pressure before I go. They seem to perform best around 2 and a half PSI, but the other guys seem to think they need more air so they kept putting more in and wonder why the bike gets squirrelly.
Headed on home
We headed on home from there and I was pretty beat from the ride so I had a rest for a bit.
I wasn’t feeling like working on the enclosures much, so I did some chair hopping.
Got back to work
I worked until almost dark then sat around for a bit enjoying the evening.
And that was my day.
