sorry i have been off so long - i have been doing some part time I.T. work, and although part-time, with the events of this spring AND what-not - i , um, well it is NOW may !!
so here ARE some pics from this winter that i never got a a chance to share - our neighbor's boys helped me de-nail/clean some of this wood, the rest i scavenged:
by now you know i am a scavenger - save a tree, use old wood!!
home depot threw out this slightly-stained osb - again, free
a garage nearby got torn down - i got this rubber/steel stuff (??) for free!
and cut in two to put under tires in case i got stuck - worked a couple of times - we had a crap winter!!
i "upgraded" the generator shed by removing the degraded tarp and using old doors... center door is fixed, the other two open - i used the crappiest hinges i had on hand - all free from garbage - including the doors!
7500w - it has worked when we needed it most!
opening day for trout was april 15 - the river was half frozen still - i went out for the first time april 27 and i was pretty sure i would get skunked - i did - just too cold for normal fishing... still pretty..
and thar she is - my beloved canoe!!she is called canoe-adura;-))))))))(those of you in on the secret that we name everything "adura" because of our chevy vandura will understand!)
i have some fishing prep posts coming but i gathered all my stuff and sorted it out - yet to finish so i made this 1st crack lure selection...
NO green was showing!!
up the creek - no fish...
oh yeah - waited forever for this to go on sale @ crappy tire - good compressor !!
like i said - mashup - someone cleaned out their garage - i will use these to store parts...
free galvanized nails
some dynamite small tool - post to come that is related....
yes, not sorted, but look at all this
no really, coupla hundred bucks in hardware..
and some more free tools - the wrenches are thin profile which i don't have - SCORE!!!
i love free stuff - i gots more but cheers for now!
**** update ***
this didn't get posted the day i made it - here are a few extra garbage goodies!!!!
this garden cart is only missing a back - the wheel you see goes soft - but that takes days - it is even a dump cart!!!
3 double paned windows - 3 feet x 5 feet. only one is cracked! i had to go back and get these a day later to bring enough tire inserts to stack them and get them home!
and of course - more free wood - rough and tumble - but good for junk projects!!!
i was doing some contract reporting work from home today - it was nice out - i snuck out and took a pic - seems like spring at last!
