The more who comment, the more that’s spread around for the benefit of all…

-I need to make room in one of the chest freezers today to fit a quarter of beef being dropped off later. This might be a challenge… Worst case, it’s a rush out to buy another chest freezer 😉

-Installed a GMRS ‘base station’ antenna, the Comet CA-712EFC. The extended range is phenomenal, still experimenting with it.

-Did some cleanup and organizing in the ‘tool room / man-cave’ this week. Still more to do.

-Went through certification / testing to operate a trail groomer & drag for snowmobile trail maintenance (this one). Sure is fun 😉

-Trying to keep the snow off the solar panels as we have been getting a steady but light snow the past several days, just enough to make it a problem…

-Practiced more winter hiking in snow while carrying bag kit, rifle, GPS (and 2-way radio for comms ‘back to base’ just in case).

-Looking into PVS-14, researching.

-Bringing inside another 400 pounds of pellets for the stove from the stack outside, getting ready for a cold(er) snap next week.

-Working with a new potential advertiser to bring on board (they sell quality canned meats for long term storage), we’ll see…

 
Your turn… What have you been up to this week?
