The tarp shed made from scraps didn’t last long. So I decided to get all the lumber I need. This doesn’t include the roof and siding.
Fitting it all in or on top of the Jeep to get it here was an adventure.
I plan on it being an 8 by 8 workshop, with a roof overhanging 3 feet on one side and 1 foot on the other. Just big enough to work in but small enough to easily heat in the winter. I actually plan on building another later just for storage.
As I approached the gas well down the road I heard the peep frogs and decided to try and record them. They usually stop as soon as someone gets nearby but this time they kept going for several minutes.
While I had the Jeep up replacing the ball joints I noticed the rear differential leaking very fast. The differential cover was rusted through. So today I replaced it. The new one is shiny but won’t stay that way long.
Here’s the old one. The leak was on the top right of the picture. The hardest part was removing the old rusted and crumbling bolts.
Almost every day I pick up trash along the road near my cabin. Not just on my property but any where I walk. Too many people are pigs!
Here’s one days collection. Not all new.
So I have made a sign. Now I just need to get it printed.
Somebody is obviously regularly sitting in their car in one spot drinking Bush and Michelob Ultra and tossing out the empties. I pick them up and soon there are more. Since my cabin can’t be seen from the road I guess they feel safe to be pigs.
So I’m starting my garden a little later than I planned. But winter is holding on pretty long this year. I purchased non-hybrid seeds so I can get more seeds for next year. If they grow. Today I started some of the plants indoors.
