Built 3 chairs today with my cousin-in-law, Tim Stelling. Tim was good friends with Tobin Sorenson, and hung with the Poway Mountain Boys, but hasn't climbed for several years (aside from one occasion when I cajoled him to spending a few days in Leavenworth with me). Fantastic guy who married my cousin, Deanna.

A small climbing gym.

Next on the list of project is a house, but we have not decided where or when yet. It will definitely be something that fits into Indonesian life.

Wilbeer, DO IT!

I love making do with the tools in my tool box, the parts in my garage, the innovation of the back of a napkin and hours upon hours of 'trial thoughts.'

What I've been very pleased with is the number of ideas I considered, investigated and dismissed, often within the confines of me own feeble brain.

What is pleasing? At how close the reality of my work is matching that dream.

So VERY satisfying.

Been a while since I chimed in with an update on the 1859 schoolhouse... *Very* pleased to say the outside is finally done. Between 2 months last Fall and April-now I cut out and replaced about 50% of the stucco (down to the underlying stone, totaling somewhere over 10k pounds of mix), replaced the porch columns and painted the whole thing. Quite happy with the results, and hoping I've now fixed all of the water infiltration problems that were causing the new plaster and paint inside to pop. And yes, I've taken to calling this my Great White Whale. ;-)

My husband, Jerry, is building a roof over our mobile home. I help when needed. Eventually, we will cover the whole mobile home and then demolish the inside room by room and have a new house on a steel bed. We are paying cash as we go so it is a slow project, but at least we shouldn't have roof leaks this next year when the snow melts.

Last weeks project.

Now the HamsterMobile was designed and marketed as a metrosexual college kids first car. It was never intended to be thrown around mountain roads by an old geezer. Consequently the handling characteristics suffer a bit.

I thought that installing a tower lateral brace would result in a small improvement. The results have been far beyond my expectations. Tracks like an Italian sports car now.

The best money, ($150) I've ever spent on an aftermarket vehicle modification!

Although it only required drilling two holes and moving the ground wire attachment location, you know you are in for some fun when the instructions describe and have a photo of how to tape the nut and washer to your finger to get them up over the top of the McPherson struts.

I gave up on keeping the nut and washer aligned and used some aircraft style elastic stop nuts, but it was still a f*#king bitch. Well worth the effort though!
