A Short Hike

Monday - Around 8:30am, before it got too hot, we went to the Broadway Rd trailhead. We walked a nice 2 mile loop. It’s been 3 1/2 weeks since Bridget’s surgery and she wanted to try out a short hike. It’s not the same as walking around the RV park as there are some up and downs. I believe all went well. 

When we returned, I noticed that the door to the wood shop was open. I went in and ran my piece of birch through the table saw and a couple passes on the router table to round the corners. Then a little trimming on the band saw and I was done. At least what I couldn’t do without the shop tools. I think I’ll wait for cooler temperatures before finishing up. 

 - A bit of excitement across the street. A broken water line from being run over by a motor home. 

It's 97°F this afternoon. I am putting off the slide work until we get some cooler weather. That side of the RV is in full sun during the morning so I would like a cooler afternoon.

I reversed the direction of the fan on my battery box. It was set up to blow air into the box but since the fan is mounted to the lid, I reversed the fan to pull hot air out of the box. It seems to be working better.

Another task was grinding down a small spot on the Blackstone griddle. I've been meaning to do it for almost a year and finally got around to it. After grinding down the high spot, I turned on the burner and re-seasoned the area by heating it to smoking-hot after adding oil. This was repeated several times. 

Wednesday - Another warm day today so I probably won't be doing much work on the slide this afternoon. Tomorrow, it's forecast to only be in the mid-80s. That sounds much better to me. Right now, I'm sitting outside enjoying my coffee and waiting for the morning test session to start. It's 76°F and feeling pretty nice.

At 1pm, they showed a movie in the activity center. An action movie that I had never heard of before. A Fast and Furious movie called Hobbs and Shaw. Not too bad, lots of chase scenes with cars, trucks, motorcycles, drones, and helicopters.
