Yeah. It Figures.

Made an early trip to COSTCO in Silverdale, where I spent $139 for burger stuff for Field Day. Nice and sunny the whole trip. Got home and started putting the stuff I bought in the Caravan. Started Clouding over. Started putting some of my radio stuff into the Caravan. Sprinkles. Started taking my 6-BTV antenna down to put in the back of the truck. Heavier Sprinkles. I’m almost afraid to start moving my radio into the Caravan! And I still have to load the generator, air tank thingie, and grill. I expect a full-fledged lightning storm with high winds and, maybe, even an earthquake before getting all the loading done. But the earthquake will probably wait until I’m mixing the gas/oil for the generator. Ain’t no fun unless I spill it all over the damned place!


So, yeah, it figures. (Oh, wait. 10 minutes later it’s actually raining.)

Other than trying to get stuff ready for Field Day I haven’t really done much. Posted ads for a Free Pool, my old tool box from my last truck, and the window air conditioner we’ve had sitting in the hall closet these past 7 years. Several people have e-mailed me about the Free Pool. One guy was supposed to pick it up this evening but I haven’t seen him yet.


Tested that new Dashcam I got on the trip to COSTCO and back. It recorded the entire trip this time. Kind of fun watching the video in their player and watching Google Earth trace the route too.

Had to make a quick run to the bus stop to pick SWMBO up. Always glad to go get her; just sorry she had to wait around so long. On a street corner no less!

Just Nothing. SSDD.

Oh, Joy! The (shitty) neighbor’s oldest kid got a new horn for his truck. It’s loud and sounds sorta like a train horn. He’s been “testing” it all damned day. Between that and them running up and over a small extension next to the road (which just happens to be on my property)(wrecking that small patch of bank, btw) I can’t contain my pleasure at having such, such, Dipsidiots, as neighbors. I’m still waiting for their youngest to kill the rest of them in their sleep some night. I’d stay alive long enough to watch him fry. Hell, I’d volunteer to flip the switch.


Not much else going on for a Tuesday. Took a short ride around earlier to test that new dashcam I got; it worked fine; for the second half of the trip. Have to figure that out. Takes nice video though.

Started getting the Caravan ready for this weekend. Wx report looks good; hot and sunny. Which will be a change as it’s managed to rain for most of my previous Field Day’s. We’ll see how that turns out.


I’m pretty disappointed in that new Vape thing I got. Battery doesn’t last very long and it gives me an “invalid mini” error (whatever that means!) when I start it up. It does use more e-juice, but I expected that.

And that has been my day. Kind of laid back really.
