I managed to get a little stuff done around here yesterday despite the heat and high wind. I expanded the solar panel coffee table by one more panel, but still need to add the part to charge multiple AA sized batteries from just the ambient light in here during the day.(provided I don't keep it totally covered with junk) That will be the next step as far as the table goes. I only had two bad panels so don't look for it to get any bigger. ;) I plan to add a magazine and junk rack under it later on.
So far no fires in this area. I sure hope our luck holds up! I got the Dungeon II cleaned out and swept out and started patching some small holes with windshield sealer instead of welding them. I don't want to take any chances on sparks from the welder starting a fire here. I may repatch them with the welder if we ever get any rain. I will have to do a little welding on the door frame, but have all the grass, creosotes and so on cleaned up on the side where the door is. Hopefully within a week I'll have pallets on the floor to store my stuff on and have everything moved from the dungeon in to there. (Provided I get the door from the dungeon added by then.) The Dungeon should take its leave from here at the end of the month.
I took the falcon to the legion for ice yesterday and when I got back my carpet driveway was blown over by the Dungeon II. I hate that because it is very heavy and hard to handle and move. Its getting windy as heck again now so it may be in the next county before I can get it put back where it belongs.
Off to Seattle - Early morning flight to head up to meet online friends. Lots going on but I decided I need to get away to get some perspective.
