Finally got some digits put on…good ‘ol 4276…I buggerd’ up the 2, but it came out ok.
This is a terrible picture of the helicopter that’s been circling the block above my trailer for about 20 minutes. Good view through the skylight. So… it’s one of three things: 1-they’ve discovered my new buddy heater and think I’m cooking up some Breaking Bad with this new thermal signature. 2-looking for a purp in the area. 3- or they’re just practicing flying around in a circle… over and over and over again.
One afternoon when I was stopping by the trailer to feed the cats one of the truck drivers picking up some steel from Main Steel across the street was looking at the trailer and we started chatting. He was wondering what I was doing for heat and I said I hadn’t figured that out yet really. He said in a southern drawl ” dude you gotta get a buddy heater, them things are awesome”. I looked it up after the last two 30 degree days, and yep Mr Heater makes a buddy heater that runs on propane and safe to use inside. I picked one up at Walmart and plugged a propane tank in and I have found my heating solution, this thing is awesome! It has 2 settings high and low and jacked the temperature up in here about 20 degrees in a half an hour on the low setting, I’m sure the cats will be pleased too…
This evening sunset is brilliant and also parallels 5 minutes before this where a Georgia Power lineman in a bucket crane just about exploded himself about 100 yards away. Flames and sparks shooting everywhere and they’ve been successful at knocking out all of the power for the entire area here. Glad he didn’t blow up along with the Transformers…
On my trip to the TOP OF GEORGIA AIRSTREAM PARK in Helen GA last week I learned a couple things.
- bring way more water
- bring coffee maker & coffee
- meet everyone at the place and try to make friends
- check all connections for leaks or breaks, gas-electric (had both)
- stow anything that moves…including the stupid unicycle…
- keep a snack handy for the ride back-drive thru’s are not trailer friendly.
- remember to feed the cats between naps…
- rinse and repeat for the next trip
That’s a short list. Shake’d a bunch of shit loose but ended up with a nice break and back home safely.
