The March Sunset race had some first time participants. Allan and Molly, friends of Danelle from school, came out to paddle. I brought a canoe and all of the other paddling equipment for them. Unfortunately for me, they were about 30 minutes late. So I stayed behind for the start of the race until they were available.
Eventually, they made it out and I got about half of my normal paddle in. We all went to the bar to enjoy the rest of the evening.
I love that people are curious. If you have a unicycle in the office, people will be curious and try it out. Here are three of my co-workers giving it a go.
I came across a stranded motorist. He had a flat tire and drove on it way too long. By the time I saw him, the shredded tire had cut through several wiring harness on his car. I used band-aids from a guy that stopped to help prevent any additional electrical shorts from the wires touching.
I recommended he get the car towed to prevent further damage, but he decided to drive it with the spare to a mechanic… Hopefully I don’t have to change too many more tires when riding!
We’re working on a solar system for waterfall so we can be off the grid. Eric came out with me today to install the larger batteries. We had to relocate them since there wasn’t room where the old one was. He brought out the soldering iron to make sure they last.
The batteries are installed and the power is on and working. We’ll have to come back another day and get the solar panels complete… Somebody forgot to bring drill bits 🙁
