First off I wanted to say thank you to Sandy over at Oklahomatransient for pulling my name out of a hat and sending me a great wilderness survival book and another little something just because. I don't win things very often and this put a smile on my face for a while.
As always, when I get sent something from another blogger or a reader, I always send something special back. Sandy, it's hot in my shop so you may have to wait until it cools off a little before I can get out there and make you something, but it will get done. I will email you when it's on the way.
I am off work Monday but the temps for the three day weekend are going to be above 100. That will make chili cooking right at nasty. I almost don't want to do it just because of the heat.
That means packing fans and extra water, more ice and more coolers.
The one good thing about it all is that I need a bigger inverter to run the big fans other than the one I have. The little 200w in the truck will only run small things so I need a 700w to run the fans and spice grinder. I also have a small fish pond pump and I could hook up some misters if need be.
The turn in time for the chili is at 12:30 so at least we won't be out there in the extreme heat cooking.
I will be taking my laptop for the two day event and will post pictures if anyone is interested. I know most are not and that's okay, it's not for everyone.
So there you have it, no homesteading ideas, no finished projects, no survival training or anything of the sorts. Just me and chili. It will be that way for awhile.
See ya Saturday,
