Summerization Summarization

Glad to say the pump-based "summerization" of the water system went just fine -- no leaks. Added bleach and sanitized the tank and all lines. Hooked up the city water and flushed the system of bleach. Drained tank and added fresh water. Small trace amount of bleach left in tank is OK, as we don't use the tank water for drinking/cooking. 2-3 more refills will take care of bleach smell in lines soon.

Two small secondary hiccups:

-- outdoor shower head/wand washer went missing -- turns out it is a standard shower head washer available at the hardware store. Got extras.

-- must have accidentally pushed the fridge On button while going in and out of the trailer, with the door still propped open with a sponge (from winter storage). Ended up with a block of ice on the cooling fins and an empty propane tank. Minor and manageable.

The pump is quieter than I remember, and the blue jeans dampening material linked on the 20-footer thread is going to be available next week. Fridge and water heater up and running fine.

Apologies for the repeat song -- what a beat and great lyrics (albeit on a silver plane -- "Airstream with wings" ? )

Let the Summer Games begin!

Peter you must be a happy camper. All in all I'd say a success.


Thinking of Merle as of late and Skull & Roses is a top 10 road CD for me. Mama Tried with Bob Weir doing a pretty good job on vocals. Classic Dead.




Bob


p.s did you install the accumulator tank in the pump room? Maybe a pic?

Thanks Bob for a great cover of a fine song, and yes the essence of a road song . . .

"The first thing I remember knowing
Was a lonesome whistle blowing
And a young'un's dream of growing up to ride"

In my opinion the accumulator is not a crucial part of controlling the noise in the pump room. Gonna wait until I get all the dampening material in place incl. the underside and interior bottom of that drawer. Next step would be the flexible connectors and some pipe insulation. One step at a time is fine for now. [New grandchild (4th in 2 years) has recalibrated our time availability!]

Echoes are the main culprit IMO.

Hope your rain ends soon and you can get tomatoes in the ground before your trip maybe. Too early? Our local growers have had tomato blight problems the last few years so I didn't even plant any. Nothing like a perfectly ripe tomato from the garden on a BLT in the summer! Drooling . . . Add the mayo avocado onion and cheese on a toasted roll . . .

OK guys and gals. Old and recent tunes.

I was are of Boz from the Steve Miller Days in SF. I grew up in the East Bay and he often played at Winterland/Fillmore. While going to college in San Diego, there was ongoing discussion with a friend re the Steve Miller Band... Steve Miller vs Boz Scaggs (who were classmates in HS in Tx) as to who was the better guitarist, lyricist, vocalist....

So it was then that I wore out my 8 track and also my album of his "Boz Scaggs & Band" which I've always referred to as Monkey Time.



too new for youtube complete version apparently so this is a favorite cut

His band rocked and Slim sounded great on the vocals. FTC isn't of his rocker blood lines and more like Silk Degrees (IMO). But none the less, a very worthy contribution from an aging rocker.

Bob

also Recorded on Common Threads (Eagles covers)...Travis just nails it.

Common Threads is top 10 for me..along with American Beauty, Skull & Roses, Moondance, Eat a Peach, Neck 'N Neck, Where's the Money, EC - White as I refer to it (Slunky et al).....TBC

Kinda reminds me of when we sold the toys and the house and converted a second home on the Sonoma coast to a primary....bout 2 hours to a red light. Time to go down a different road.

RIP Merle. Like JJ Cale, your influences are grossly underestimated and deserve greater accolades. Like with Breeze , The Road to Escondido (Possibly EC's best work IMO even considering his white album as I call it w/Slunky and Delaney & Bonney on tour with EC as backup ) and Love for Leavon


They'll be lining up for the honor of covering and remembering Merle.

BTW had lunch in your wonderdul town a number of year ago, while traveling in heavy rain from Atlanta to Washington Mo. Seems it was on the river. My wife bought me this mug as a reminder to return soon. After many moons, still our favorite soup mug

It was in a 70 Westy hardtop with a new 8 track, fresh from Marantz, Van Ness Ave. SF. First 8 Track cassettes... the Doors and Skull & Roses.

Good tunes and memories, Bob! Lots of Boz's Silk Degrees tunes in my music shuffle . . .

Here is one cut from The Road To Escondido, with a great beat and the essence of JJ Cale's and Eric Clapton's basic (good) simplicity IMO.

Great beat and lyrics:
_______________________________________________

Floatin' down that old river boy, all my worries far behind,
Floatin' down that old river boy, leave old memories way behind,
Yesterday is slowly fadin',
All my life, I've been waitin', for this time.
