It’s going to be a warm day +20 °C today! Might actually get to make a few trips to the dump this week and clean up the yard. Put the Duct Tape Palace down for the season, poor thing. She’s really showing her age. Found more small rips in the canvas and spots that have been leaking. Maybe next year will be her final camping year. Still beats sleeping on the ground.
I’m listening to a cool radio station from Sweden – http://www.rockklassiker.com . They play alot of classic rock tunes like Iron Maiden, Scorpions, Whitesnake, Kiss, Bon Jovi, Judas Priest, Accept, Queen, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Alice Cooper, you name it. Might not understand what they’re saying on the air, but the music is the best.
Brad spent most of the weekend getting the rest of our trike together, disc brakes and all. I think he plans to paint it tonight. We took it for a brief test ride over the weekend before the brakes were put on and I have to admit, it’s AWESOME! We will be riding it to and from the grocery store every week after the paint cures as much as possible before there’s too much snow on the ground. Who knows, maybe we’ll be able to ride it for most of the winter. For quite a few years, we haven’t had snow since mid to late December. Global warming.
Last week, we saw an excellent documentary at the theatre – An Inconvenient Truth. Learned alot about former U.S. Vice-President Al Gore and his lifelong commitment to environmental issues. Be a part of the solution, not the problem. Watch this movie. In fact, it should be required viewing in every school everywhere. I read on the site that it’s coming out on DVD in November.
Our new trike is another way that we plan to address the global warming issue and emissions issues with the gas guzzling beasts of our roads. Plus, we plan to make an eco-friendly trailer next year using solar and electric power technologies More on this exciting project in the coming months. Stay tuned for the trike download next week!
