Day: February 5, 2024

Mon. Feb. 5, 2024 – what fresh hell will this week bring?

Cool and clear, according to the national forecast, overcast and clouds according to openweathermap. Guess we’ll see who guessed better. It was cool and clear yesterday, but windy as all get out. Crazy windy. I suppose it helped dry things out, but it blew stuff all over my yard and driveway.

I did stuff close to home yesterday. Worked in the garage doing a little clean up. Very little compared to what needs to be done, but it was a start. Moved some stuff around in the house too. Spent some time on the computer doing auction stuff, and worked on some pipes. I’m finding it to be very relaxing to refurbish them as I watch videos or work on the computer.

Today will be more of the same, with some domestic bliss added in.

And it’s time for me to start thinking about the Hamfest, and what I’m bringing there for sale. I re-read my posts from last year and I haven’t done any of what I thought I should, mainly selling the higher value stuff on ebay. I guess I’ll give it one more try since it’s only a few weeks away. I’m definitely adding some of my test gear to the sale pile. I have stuff I haven’t even turned on in 3 years, and barely know how to use. That’s not in itself an issue for me, I’ve got lots of stuff I only use occasionally, and only to the extent I need to get something done. But there are things that someone else might better use, and that are so specialized that I might never learn to use them properly. Since it’s mostly radio test gear, the Hamfest it the place for it.

My non-prepping hobby will be having a mini swapmeet next weekend at our usual meeting too, so I should get some stuff together for that. Suddenly, I feel really busy…

That’s just par for the course I guess. Note to self, don’t falter…

Stack what you need, get rid of what you don’t.
