John Wells was curious how his buddy Benita the Longhorn drinks water. He rigged up a clear bottom bowl and filmed her drinking. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gbZLlgcIqo
Check him out on the left sidebar as the Field Lab.
For some reason a cabinet was opened and curiosity caused me to unpack it. That set off a chain reaction of events. The first cabinet had FIVE blankets in it. Now what in the world is this old fat man doing with FIVE extra blankets. If everything goes to pieces and it is necessary, my 25 degree rated sleeping bag will be put into service.
Also in the chaos, my day pack of lots of years came to the surface. My body will no longer allow me to go places the pack needs to go. It was with me all over from Texas to Washington and has served very well at all times.
Several other items were shoveled out of the depths of the Castle. Finally the chore was stopped. Maybe not finished, but stopped for now. All the blankets except the two chosen to keep were folded and put into the trusty day pack. A few clothes were placed in the pack. A few miscellaneous items were added.
Now that leaves me with a small day pack with hydration bladder capabilities, two blankets, more clothes than are fun to wash and plenty of other items to wonder about next divesting time. Not a lot of weight is going away, but two cabinets are now empty. Looks like a smaller trailer would do just fine.
All this stuff will be taken to the multi denominational thrift shop in town to be sold and help them defray church expenses. Long ago trying to sell these types of items proved to cost more in delivery and bother than they were worth, so it all gets donated somewhere.
There you have a day of ransacking that was good for trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM
