    Used more than 3 gig data in 4.5 days. Yikes. Had to add data to post this and sure appears they are throttling the hell out of it. Slow as dial-up.

    We be jammin...got sheeting off and bought lumber. Sleeping beauty goes to bed 10:30-noon. Leaves for work 8ish PM. So 72 degrees with slight breeze this morning let me get something done. I'll hit it again tomorrow cutting out rafters and maybe get the sheeting on.

    Decided to rebuild the porch roof. Was built out of 2x4's 16" OC. Looks like a swayback horse. Only nailed together. Going to use treated 2x6 so can change pitch slightly to match trailer. 24" on-center but boxed together at 48" mark. I have a couple new treated 2x6 already so need 6 more 10...

    I hate working at heights. 10 feet just as well be 100. Need a better ladder. And some balls. And it's getting too hot for me.

    It's a solid 2" difference in height from porch to trailer roof. The porch extends 9.5 foot from trailer. Peel & Stick is 36" wide with 3" overlap. So 4 strips. That would produce an 18" overlap of trailer roof. If it'll stick. I even considered running another 2 or 3 strips on the trailer to...

    Just occurred to me could use torch to help remove some of the old goop. I mean very minimal torch use so I don't burn it down but the warmer it gets the easier it comes off. Sealing a porch roof, to the trailer is about impossible on a mobile home. On this old trailer the J-track that is...

    Was about a 15" x 14 foot section of something that was just laying on roof. No adhesion at all. Need to scuff/sand/grind trailer roof so whatever goes on it sticks.

    The fresh plywood is just a half sheet I'm using to kneel on to spread the load. I believe they should have made the roof angle match the trailer and not have the about an inch difference in height. I'm cooling off and also letting the goop they had stuffed in warm up so it peels off easier.

    Building is a lot cooler but it's still early. Finally stuck my finger in the hornet's nest of a porch roof. Sweet Jesus what a mess. Need to seal the whole trailer roof. More money to spend.

    Added 3 gig to phone. Verizon says nothing has changed but I have almost no connection to their network. Why I haven't upgraded service. Need to try a different provider.

    I have some tools a younger man might need. At some point maybe I'll take some pictures. Would love to sell the big box loaded with tools.

    Having some left after you have shelter & food is nice. I spent ALL mine from 1980-2020. Now I'm reaping the benefits. There is no disposable income. Everything I spent on this boondoggle was tax return & stimulus money. Shut off cable because that's nearly $200 a month. Going to try to leave it...

    Hindsight is 20/20. This compressor situation wasn't worth the hassle. But it's probably gonna be fine for no more than I'll use it.

    Inserted wrong picture above. It works until the JB Weld gives up and the broken piece falls out.

    Only difference between the two was the shut-off/cycling switch. But the 27 gallon was rated to 200PSI although, for me, that's just scary. I've considered getting an even lower pressure switch. Cycle on 135psi---off 150ish. Built my own pressure regulator as the OG is junk. Unfortunately now...

    Had to do a bunch of grinding on the metal tab to clear the tank bracket. Used 6mm bolts as no room for anything larger. It's all together and makes air with no smoke. Used 175psi shut-off switch. I'm seriously considering swapping everything over to the other 27 gallon tank as this 30 gallon is...

    They put the checkered flag on the window sill. He stepped on it, slipped off and nearly broke his arms. Not cool.
