There is still much to do, but I feel like I'm over the hump now, that I've established a momentum. Much better than the freaked-out paralysis I was experiencing a couple of days ago.
I went out to the land last weekend to move the bus, and actually did manage, with the help of a friend, to get it started, but it would only stay running if I kept my foot on the gas. And then it just died altogether, possibly because it ran out of gas. At any rate, my friend, who has a monster truck, has offered to tow it from the junkyard to my land, so I'm extremely grateful for that. We'll be doing that on Sunday.
In other news, last week I had to drive to Albuquerque for a conference, and it turned out to be a (serendipitously) fruitful trip for my housebuilding project as well. Right before I left town, I checked Craigslist and someone in Santa Fe had just posted that they were giving away about 60 Saltillo tiles, so I stopped there on my way and loaded them into the Blazer.
|I'll be using some of these for the floor of my outdoor shower, initially.|
Since the trip was paid for by UNM-Taos, my only cost was the price of that $2.50 beer.
