Met UPS up at the GrubShack at 11:30 to get my latest deliveries (new inverter, charge controller, and shade cloth). Jerry from UPS is sooooo good that if I park my truck by the highway - he will pull over and stop if he has something for me. I don't know which I love more - doppler radar or UPS tracking. Gone are the days when you would fill out your info on a match book cover and mail it away...waiting endlessly for a reply or merch.
Since the shade cloth arrived, I reckoned I should put a piece up. I ordered Aluminet from Farmtek - cuts 80% of the light and reflects the heat away. Bent some nails, did some grinding, and welded 4 "tabs" to tie off the first piece of shade. Being able to weld strong parts to the shipping containers reminds me of my days at Chris Callis Studio in NYC when we had a big steel wall set up for backgrounds.
