What did you ACCOMPLISH?

Recommended Posts

@NightmareOnElmStreet- 2 things. 

 

1. I didn't explain that the work to do that involves a 2.5h roundtrip drive each time if you don't stop anywhere to diddle and this was done across 2 afternoons w/ limited daylight left 🙂 . I don't like driving home from the lake at night because of the deer and I don't have that bad ass deer slaughterer bumper on my truck yet.

2. Some of the stuff in there is beyond organizing.  What you cannot see is the perfectly lined up spare cylinder heads and transmissions stacked on the shelves closest to the doors (behind the black car).  Getting storage racks to get things that were strewn across the floor was step #1.  I should have taken a before picture when all that shit was taking up floor space like a mother fucker.

 

Organizing the mess is next on the list but the main reason for doing this is so that I can store my brother's Skyline for him since it's currently just under a car cover outside up in Dallas.

Gotcha. I missed the part where you are apparently a master mechanic. That's cool. Assuming you get your wrenching in between computer nerving. Also why the hell do you pick things up from a lake? Or do you live on said lake? I'm lost, but interested.

@NightmareOnElmStreet- I live in a rented duplex in Austin and have a 1 acre property with shop and manufactured home on it in the Canyon Lake area.  It's about a 1h drive south from my house to get there.  My duplex garage/driveway/street space in front is full of my shit too, so I'm trying to utilize the shop space at the lake for storage.

 

edit: also it's flattering that you think I'm a master mechanic.  I'm just a guy with a packratting problem and a hobby that takes a lot of space.

Installed a temporary electrified bear fence to buy time until I can build a permanent one all the way around my chicken coop and run, gardens and orchard area (which the deer decimated two summers ago or it would be an actual orchard and not just an “orchard area”. )

 

They did tear some shit up last night but didn’t manage to get in.

Thats dope. Waterfront??

Oh no no... The marina is close though. 

 

edit: also I'd recommend working on your own car to anyone.... i don't care who you are.  Obviously some people, like my mom, will never work on her car..... but it's a good skill to learn.

 

I need to finish the Kubota tractor project soon too.  That one is on the near future to do list.... the one @misteravensaid is just a lawn mower lol.

 

That's the back side of the chicken coop they tore up?  I can hear you sweet chickunz sleeping in there.

yikes.

 

I can see why you'd carry a gun .

 

Are they scared off by things like sensor lights etc?

No, not really. Deer will sort of keep distance from stuff like that, bears definitely won't.

 

Bears are pretty smart. In fact a lot of the predators are. Wolves will actually send a younger wolf out and have it act like its hurt to draw out dogs so the pack can ambush it. They also send bitches that are in heat to do the same thing and then literally coordinate an ambush. Most predators rather not deal with humans, but thats more based on their own decision to go for easier prey versus how hungry they are. Livestock is usually fair game though, so you really need to take precautions if you don't want to end up feeding the local predator population.

 

Its interesting to consider perspectives on nature outside of areas with real nature. Until I moved here I sort of went with the POV I see most often where nature is this idyllic beauty and its all peaceful, etc. Reality is that nature is violent as fuck and exists in a perpetual state of flux where almost everything in nature is essentially sleeping, eating, fucking or fighting. It's far more savage at the micro and macro level than most people realize, unless they have the experience of actually living in or near the wild. Since fucking and eating are highly competitive, it means that fighting makes up most of it and its far more brutal a competition than most people realize.

Wifey and I bought a new fridge last month, so I have converted the old one for fermenting beer. Drilled a hole in the side of the fridge to run a thermometer (the black wire in the top right) that controls an external thermostat to keep the beer at a consistent cool temperature while fermenting... Massively hacked together, but works well.  Will get around to building a better shelf for the beer, but at the moment it’s just wood off it’s and scrap bricks with some bonus rap letters.

Completed:

  • Drove back and forth from Austin to DFW on Saturday to pick up a mattress for one of my younger brothers.  We had lunch with our other brothers and his wife in the Forth Worth stockyards @ a place called Risckey's BBQ.  It was pretty good.
  • Split some firewood in the back yard.
  • Ordered an axe... i guess that means I accomplished spending some money.
  • Changed the oil and fuel filter in my truck.  It costs $120 to do that service to my truck every 5k miles.

 

Next up to accomplish:

  • Fix the tractor at dad's so we can actually drive it and use it for doing shit..... and hear the turbo we installed on it make party whistle noises.
  • Move one of my other brother's cars down here from Dallas now that there is room for it.

Finished the shelving.  It took $150 more in lumber today to complete.
 

 Bonus shot of rare dodge colt I have.  She's dirty.

I learned how to drive stick on a dodge colt with no power steering.  That was child abuse.

I've been fucking with this build for a couple years (always get distracted by bigger projects), made a good bit of progress on it this afternoon. I'm going to look into getting custom printed rusto and scotty bricks.

waited for the bus for 30 min. until i remembered it was memorial day.

met up with an old friend and went for a little nature hike.

made some stir fry for dinner.

went for a bike ride around town until dark.

sprinkled lots of cayenne pepper in my yard as a dog deterrent(see "random thots" thread for elaboration..).

lounged at home relaxing and binge watching stuff.

I removed the rear tires from the rims on both of our dirt bikes, resealed them, and put slime in them.  We run what's called "Tubliss"  systems in our tires so they can be run at 6psi which greatly increases traction.

Got the power and gas connected in the apartment. 

 

kitchen items just got delivered. 
 

called a business 10 min to close to inquire About  calling tmrw to make an order over the phone and having a futon delivered on a certain day becaus I don’t wanna take too many days off 

 

In  about 9 hrs of work  -i worked the under canopy of about 250  plants.  Upper and lower levels. 
hermed out 43 more plants-while workin the canopy I’m stripping the male parts off each plant that is found with them in those 10 hrs. 
complete concentration with no music. 
 

made three separate spreadsheets about clones and the hermed plants 

 

calculated what our percentage of  loss is for each strain. 

 

potted up about 130 clones. 
and now I have to figure out how to fit about 2000 up potted clones into a space made for 816. 

 Then our consultant comes in tomorrow and he’s gonna put us to work. Because all that shit I just listed ain’t shit compared to what he has is doin. (Which I love)
