One thing leads to another



I finally felt healthy enough to do some work outside. I tried the 25 foot pipe snake from the well side of the supply line. Did not notice any obstructions. The next step is to try it from the basement side. That will require moving a lot of junk and some digging. My 10 meter long bore scope came in the mail late in the afternoon. It connects directly to my cell phone and has a decent picture. Can't wait to try it. That might show me things the bore snake could miss.

While we were out and about, my lovely wife asked me to move some things down by the beach. It was such a beautiful day that we decided to have lunch next to the water. The sun was so warm that we lay out in the sailboat's cockpit, soaking up some vitamin D.

Then the wind picked up so we had no choice. My lovely wife and I just had to lift anchor and raise the sails. We spent the rest of the afternoon sailing. Heck, I even did some fishing while we were cruising around. Temperatures were in the high 70s, the fall foliage is filling in, and bugs were few.

It was like a day in Paradise. Unlike some Paradise spots, there were no poisonous snakes, no sharks, alligators, or Zika mosquitoes. Don't get me wrong, once the snow flies up here, I'll gladly take my chances with the critters to have a little warmth and sunshine. However, for one day, it was Paradise here in the Great White North.

My lovely wife appears to be recovered from her bout of plague. Occasionally, I still try to cough up a lung, but that's normal for me. It didn't seem to bother me much at all while sailing.

  1. A borescope that attaches to a cell phone, that could be a handy tool. Do you happen to have a URL for where you purchased it?

    1. Hi M. Silvius! Here's the Amazon link for the one I got:
      https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XSC7VQF/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

      It was super cheap. There's a huge selection of reasonably priced scopes on Amazon.

    2. Wow, that is exceptionally affordable. I might just have to order one. Looking forward to your report on how it works. If you can spot the obstruction or where the pipe has collapsed it should save you a whole lot of digging and you can target your digging to a much smaller area.

    3. Indeed. I messed around testing it in dark spaces and the LEDs and resolution is good enough. Will post how it finally all sorts out.

    1. The colors are amazing. My lovely wife and I are about to go for a drive. New England lobsters are the best in the world. Hey, they've got edible claws, unlike the s FL lobsters.

  4. Sounds like things are going pretty well there. Life is good here in the Blue Ridge too. Low humidity and moderate temperatures.
    I guess we should all enjoy it while we can, looks like a cold winter coming up.

    1. Winter in NH is predicted to be colder with more snow. Perfect for people who love to ski.

      I'll be sailing and camping down south.
