61F and overcast. Drizzle all night. I don’t think we totaled very much.
Before I went to be last night, I tuned around the shortwave bands. Lots of strong signals on the low bands. 5, 6, and 7Mhz usually have something to listen to, but last night they were coming in like local broadcast.
The kids’ “bushcraft” shelter is still standing. They had a lot of fun yesterday playing in it with their friends. I needed earplugs and aspirin 🙂 It LOOKS great, and introduces the idea. Check out joe robinet at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPBwJG1Z_eQ [added- this is just a recent video, click on his channel name for more relevant and better vids] for how it’s really done. Anyone with PA fantasies about living in the National Forest should watch a hundred hours of his channel. Heck, anyone writing a scene involving it should watch. And keep in mind, he’s in Canada, with much lower population density, and everyone hasn’t bugged out to the hills. Also, no dependents.
I scanned back through the last few posts and boy are they full of doom and gloom. I think it’s appropriate doom and gloom, but it is a lot. I’m going to try for a bit more balance this month. We’ll see if the world lets me.
Keep stacking though!
