Before the race, make up a righteous dirt and cobble ride of your own. If you have a good candidate for a 20 mile course, please send me a Bikely route. I always do the same route and now that FLT is paved, a good portion of the dirt is gone from my preferred route.
That's the bike-related part of the post.
We're building a treehouse. Since I can't really find a way to relate this to cycling, watch for random treehouse add-ons to bikey posts.
Thank god I live within spitting distance of an engineer that likes to build stuff. And has great tools.
I had some ideas on how to hang this board from the trees and then ran them by Pat, who obsessed on it a bit, and came up with (and fabricated) these beautiful hangers. I had a plan, but I didn't feel great about it, so honestly, I was hoping to tap into Pat's tendency to obsess.
The goal is to let the tree move and grow and change slowly -- so these brackets are perfect. I can back off the lag screw a half turn once a year or so as the bark grows and heals.
Here's Pat tacking on the supports to the angle iron shelves.
Here's Maddie. Happy with the results. Click for big to see where that bubble is on the level. Hint: DFC.
