Hit the GrubShack for breakfast this morning. I'm happy to report that the food is still excellent there. Jerry and Eva are doing a bang up job on keeping us all fed well out here. Managed to drag truss 5 up on top today.....it is still much more of a chore from this end but I only got one to go now. Cool day with wind so it was sweater weather. Wrapped up the labor detail by 4PM.
Still way to much day left so I decided to start switching the hut back into winter mode. The Pepino Swamp Cooler is no longer needed so that got extracted from its' window. The poor ol' guy is pretty beat up so I reckon this beta version is retired after 2 seasons - just hope I get around to fabricating the new one before it starts getting hot next summer. Shuffled some stuff around inside so I could mount the heater back into position. Last on the list was moving my ice box out to the front porch. I get 4-5 months of ice free cooling thanks to the nighttime temperatures as long as I keep it stocked with plenty of refrigerant to hold the cold.
Heading down to the Ghost Town tomorrow evening for a shindig being put on for a bunch of photographers visiting the area. Hope to broadcast some of the festivities starting at 6:30PM at www.stickam.com/thefieldlab 52,67,31,0
