It took me the better part of the morning, and into the afternoon to get the trailer organized.....I put away my "Workmate" (portable work bench by Black and Decker), the tandem, a few of the camp chairs, and created a pile of items that did not make the cut to remain in the trailer......a beach umbrella, one camp chair, a small car bike rack, and the extra golf bag.....I'm sure there will be a few more items added to the pile Friday, then we'll make a run to a local thrift store and make a donation. I also unpacked our new awning mat, and the new bedroom heater that I'll install on Friday.
By 1:30 it was beginning to get a little warm in the trailer so I had a meeting with myself and decided it was time to take a break for lunch (left over pizza), and maybe read a little in shade of the patio awning, which is precisely what I did until I got a call from our mechanic (John) over at Higher Ground Autoworx around 4 pm advising he had finished the work on the Beetle, so I hopped on my Badboy and made my way over to pick up the car. As it turned out the work (new brake pads, rotors, oil change, new oil dip stick and tube) cost about $100 less than I was expecting. We chatted for about 15 minutes about some more minor stuff that we will take care of next summer when we come back to SLT, and then I was on my way back home.
I stopped off briefly in the TVC office to pick up a small package containing two "bike tights" I bought on eBay to mount my Intense MTB, and my grandson's MTB. Previously I used part of my old Yakima bike rack to secure my Intense MTB, but I sold that so hence the need for the bike tights.
Around 6 we had dinner (chicken on a bed of rice with zucchini and broccoli), then headed outside for a fire where we were joined by Deb and Johnny for about an hour.....looking forward to 5th Saturday and getting more "stuff" done.
Thanks for stopping by!
