Free water pump

Not so busy day but... Went to visit a buddy who has a place way south of me. He gifted me with an ass kicking gas powered water pump and a bunch of hoses to enhance the abilities of the Field Lab to collect storm runoff - perhaps just in time as we have two days of 30% chance of rain coming up this weekend. Got my timer kit in the mail and itchin to fire up the ol' soldering iron.

Congratulations on the very fine acquisition. Wow, that is a very cool friend in deed. And what a beautiful adobe home; I wonder if he built it himself. Your friend looks like he may be a HAM as well. If I'm correct, looking at your pics, I think I detect a push up pole with a TRAM 1480 dual band 2m/440cm Co-Linear Antenna about 30' up and I bet that does a very nice job with making contacts on the local repeater systems.

Excellent score on the water pump.
What a beautiful casa. What's he asking for the place?

Great acquisition for the Field Lab and the price is right, lol.

What a cute house!! Why would anyone want to move from such a tranquil setting?

What was the high temperature today?
