Yep! As you know we full time, and I realized very early last summer that one simply wasn't capable of keeping up when it gets up in the 90's with no shade! (I'm very curious as to if that will change when I paint the roof (planned activity for Sunday))

Same on the front/back, it's nice to pick and choose the one in the opposite room to keep it quiet.

How did the roof painting go Rob? Did this humidity give you problems? What product did you use?

Heh, I have 2 gallons of henry enviro-white ready to go but haven't gotten around to it yet. I also have the second fan sitting around on standby to do the same day.

That weekend a wedding kept us up till 3, met with Tony and family for a great breakfast Sunday morning, slept most of the day, and replaced those batteries

Last weekend my sister headed out to move cross country, and I studied a lot. Always something.

Maybe this weekend!

Good deal!

Looks like you have both of the house leads connected to the same battery. You might want to switch one of those wires to the other battery, so both batteries get drawn down equally.

Fellas fellas, you can't get a crop in that tight of a space.....indica, sativa, doesn't matter. Not enough room on the counter there. Now, enough of this silliness, I'm gonna roll one up, finish this bag of Cheetos, sitting here naked in my beanbag chair.

Now all your trips to Colorado, regardless of how terrible the weather is, are starting to make sense!

Start with these right?


So in less green news, on my latest pre-flight check I noticed the drivers inner dually tire was down to 30 lbs

Aired it up, checked it again today a week later, back down to 30, so i need to change that with the spare so I can diagnose

Setting up the rear airbag compressor with a 50' hose is definitely a good capability to have
