Almost Friday!

And I'm just about ready to head out to Home Depot and Harbor Fright to pick up some stuff like 4x4x8 fence posts to mount the "permanent" antennas, some 8' ground rods and a driver bit to install them using my neighbor's demolition hammer, and a few bags of "QuickCrete" to set the posts.

Then over to Harbor Fright to pick up an auger:





Yes, I could rent one, BUT...these are on-sale, and I have a "25% off one item" card from Hot Rod Magazine, so I'll 'only' pay about $125 for it. The rental place wants $30/day to rent one, and at the speed I work at, I'll be money ahead to just buy the thing! After we "bore the holes and set the poles" and the QuickCrete cures, I'll be able to drive the ground rods in at the base of the poles, install the PolyPhaser Lightning Surge Protectors, bond the ground rods together with some 4 gauge wire. Then I'll transfer the 20 Meter vertical from the tripod to it's own post, and get the SGC autocoupler and mast mounted to the other post to finish up the 88' wire antenna.

And I haven't forgotten the Supra.


I've cleaned up enough of the "Winter Storage" debris to get all around the car, and I'll take her out tomorrow and blow the dust off with the pressure washer and a 'gentle' spray head. Then I can get back to finishing up the front bumper so I can get the grille, fog lamps, and corner lights back on.

    1. Slowly I Turned, Step By Step.....

      Or something like that. Some things are really easy to get here, like anything you can think of for fencing, and some things aren't, like radio and electronics parts. There's two stores, owned by the same people, that deal in two-way radio, and misc electronics parts. And as big a fan as I am of "Buy Local", I'm just not gonna do it when the local stuff is 2x or 3x as expensive, and the selection is lacking at times.

    1. Gatoraide and PediLyte are always "in stock" here.

      I'm still in shock over how friggin' DRY it is here.

  3. Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades...but it’s almost Friday eve. But for a retired guy, what is the difference between Monday and Friday?

    The answer should be “nothing”

    1. I used to use that phrase about horseshoes and hand grenades until it grew to include small thermo-nuclear devices. Thought that covered it until a friend said close counts in slow dancing, too.

    2. I'm aware of the weekends, LL. Mostly because we have family events to plan, and Those The Working dictate the schedule.

      Mondays? That means we have The Little Guy until late afternoon.

      Fridays? Depends on if CSU is in session or not. When the school year ends in June, the Townies take the city back and have lots of free events.
