Bing Bing Binginging! Ricochet Rabbit!

Remember him? That's how I feel lately... bouncing from one task to the next... most times the first isn't done yet, just obstructed by some lack of parts or timing, so I move on and will come back later.

Been working on getting that generator up, and  finally, for the time being got that finished up yesterday. It was a piece of work. The carb was bad varnished after sitting unused for a couple of years, so that took some TLC. (Luckily I've a good friend that knows the inside of a carburetor/generator like a book)

Annnnd... the charging circuit for its own battery isn't functioning... so I'm having to "work around" and use my lil' charger to juice the generator battery while the generator is juicing the rig...

Found that out when I Plugged the rig in and ran the air conditioner for two hours to run in the brushes well and give it all a shakedown...

... it's not perfect. Not especially satisfied with the wiring... but it'll do for now. There's also a lil' more conflict 'tween the trailer and the generator than I was hoping for, on right turns... less than with the bike and the fiver, so I can deal... but I'll be looking at solutions to that as time rolls by.

Then... other projects I've been working on as I ricochet around... One being getting things a bit organized...

As ever'body knows... living in "Tight" quarters requires ever'thing having a place... and ever'thing IN its place... otherwise frustration puts a twist in your skivies.

I'm still working that out on this new rig... annnnd... making a little progress...

buuuuuut... I really really need to line out that setup where I can offload all this leather shop cargo... so this rig can haul horses! ;) Currently, the horse compartment remains full__and getting fuller__ of all that leather shop tools and "furniture"...

...As if it weren't full enough... I keep adding to the stack!

 Yeah... I built that stand this week  for some projects I've had "working" in my head for a while... that need the help of some proper equipment...

Well... all that is loaded and wedged into the back of the rig now... that generator is up and running... bins and buckets are getting squared away and today I'm packing up my warbag cuz  leave Sunday morning for Missouri again. This time I'm finally hauling that old Jayco to near Springfield where my daughter and her family are to be building a house.


Come the evening and it's time to stop and tune up the stereo... and chill for an hour... so I can recharge to start it all again in the morning...
