Weird PNM ladder that leans ON THE MAST.

We have the power! (By the way - we were required to build our service entrance 100 feet from Richard's pole. Any greater and we'd have to add another pole. Mr. PNM measured the distance with his distance binoculars and it was EXACTLY 100 feet. Crazy!)

Plumbing status as of 1pm when Brian left the project to bring food to the shack. The pipe in the foreground is the toilet.

Brian’s way of keeping the stub for the toilet at the right level whilst he is under the house.

Brian spent the remaining part of the day working on the drain plumbing.  Unfortunately, he made a mistake on the slope and had to start over.  He was able to repurchase the 4 fittings that were needed before the stores closed at the end of the day and prep everything for a speedy do-over for tomorrow.

  1. Not to sure of why he held the toilet flange 3 inches high? Sure as always there is a plan!

  2. Now, for a flushing potty, guess you need water first.. Now you can charge your batteries without traveling.

  3. wow! congratulations on the power. it is something we take for granted until there is none. Hats off to He-Man!!
