Put a skid plate on my jet motor, because I beat the shit out of my gear, so a little armor is always nice.

Anytime you get to work on a jet propelled vehicle, especially your own jet propelled vehicle, it's a manly task.

Gaze upon my jet foot intake fins and skid. Gaze at it.

sewed some curtains for the bunkhouse window at the front of the RV
found some really good Ron Loc blackout material on clearance, and I have a couple heat-blocking curtains that my wife bought, too small for our window. So I cut two 36" X 15" pieces and sewed them like cover. I thought about cutting all four pieces at once and doing a zig-zag stitch down the raw edge, but I wanted the air gap between the fabrics to improve insulation.

I think they'll look nice enough. I'm just going to clip them in place for now, but if I decide they need to be openable, I'll put some drapery hooks on them. Next sewing project is redoing the dinette cushions...found a scalding deal on some really nice outdoor fabric.

And going to the junkyard tomorrow to get a seat for the Captain's Chair in the back. Found one in a 2010 Sienna that should work, just have to adapt the rotational mechanism of the current chair to the base of the new chair. Good excuse to get the welder out, might add gas this time.

Went out to 300 yards for one final check on my 30-06 before we leave for Alaska.

It’s a bit low on the first BDC reticle, same as the 200 straight up. If I sighted it in an inch high at 100 I’d be dead on but I ain’t touching it. I’m extremely relieved. Also, Sex Chicken @Sex Chicken , I ditched the bipod and I’m gonna bag shoot of my purse.

Wired up a VSR (voltage sensing relay), negative bus bar and a 60 amp breaker for my trolling motor. Still have to add a 12 slot fuse block coming off the house battery with a 120 amp breaker.

shouldn't the graduations be about half that for a 'fish ruler'?
No?
The last thing I want to do is put my buddy, the local game warden (a fellow Devil Dog)for our lake and neighborhood in a bad position by being wildlife integrity violators.
