Found a group of longhorns here when I woke up....chewed through 2 extension cords (no injuries) and my camera cable - and one of them found some alfalfa in the courtyard. Chased them all away but they hung near the perimeter almost all day. Benita and crew stood guard by my entrance for half the day.
Chopped out another 4 inches in hole #1 this morning. Went south for supplies and while I was gone, Capt. Kirk dropped off a nice big drill bit for me....foot long - 3/4" diameter masonry bit. That should speed things up. Spent the afternoon extracting the front wall partition and more extraneous bits out of the Airstream. 96,106,69,0,B
