Captain Kirk, Boise

I was watching disk 10 of season 1 of Star Trek. The captain character (played by none other than Canadian actor and horse enthusiast William Shatner) mentioned Boise. I was surprised that, with the entire universe of places to mention, he mentioned Boise. He also mentioned Honolulu, San Diego and outer Mongolia.

Broken Iron Skillet

My cast Iron Griswold skillet cracked while I was cooking a grilled-cheese sandwich. Luckily I just found one on eBay for $234.99. Also luckily, I finished cooking the sandwich.

Winter Cabins

At last, one we could enter. After hours (maybe 8) of stoking the fire it was warm - inside the wood stove. The fire eventually went out and in the morning the fire building and stoking resumed apace.
I say "apace" all the time.

Winter Driving

This is what the roads looked like on my way to California.

This too

I've been working on the old tanker truck for the trip back. A few obstacles that stand in my way are: Rats in the engine, I have no skill or knowledge as a mechanic, and it is not my truck.
