Tools and Projects
I did not think it possible, but it's happened. I've actually started to miss home construction products. There aren't enough tools and materials in the van to keep me occupied. There's a lot of stuff to do back home: water heater, deck, flooring, furnace repair, chimney cleaning -and so on and so on. There's a broken buried water line that needs attending. The trail to the beach needs to be totally redone, maybe even rerouted. I'm going to make some trips to the dump and haul a lot of stuff away. Over the last few months my lovely wife and I have put together quite a list.
There are also a lot of boat upgrades I want to do. Last year I started to race the snow to get my boat trailer repaired. As it turned out, we decided not to trailer the boat this winter. All that last minute hustle wasn't necessary. On the bright side, that's one less thing for me to deal with.
Of course, we are still actively looking for a bigger trailer sailor. If we buy one, no doubt there will be things that need repair and upgrades. Even new boats have issues. Older ones, ones in my price range, certainly do.
Then there's a 1974 KZ-900 motorcycle sitting in my basement in pieces. I've all the parts I need to put it back together. The project came to a screeching halt when my leg got injured.
With so much on my “to do” list, I'd better hit the ground running when we get home. It sure will feel good to put some of those projects behind me. Vacation has been fun, but fixing and building stuff is fun too.
Then we've got to find some time to play. All work and no play makes Sixbears a dull lad.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
