Slow Summer Week

After the RV trip to Salt Lake City, Buena Vista and a guy's weekend in Fraser; it was time to just relax at home for a bit.

Did some maintenance on Umarang, the URRV:

  • Installed crankcase oil vent filter and reconnected hose to air filter box
  • Replaced rain gutter spout which got ripped off by tree branches in BV
  • Made sun shields for driver/passenger side windows
  • Tried out use of fans to keep inside temps down: jury's out on this one.
  • Installed TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) (Copied RichardM's)
  • Greased zerks associated with front wheel steering/suspension components. (Messy)
  • Washed Uma and her sun shade
Realized the cell signal booster I bought has a -23dBm max limitation and surprised their Tech Support with the -21dBm I can get with the raised antenna and extension cable.  Not sure I want to spend the $400+ to get the unit with a promised -50 dBm gain.

Very hot during the day, cooling off a bit at night, especially if it rained.

It may be a relaxing week, but there were no shortages of gorgeous sunsets. Nicely done Dom.

Thanks Trobairitz but its becoming formulaic it seems. I was hoping the ever shifting canvas that nature provides would make up for the same location and subject....

The rain: an entirely new way of looking at the setting sun. Well done, even if a little wet!

PS, you are the king of sunsets, no warnings required ;o)

Thank you VStar Lady, I fear I'm getting a bit formulaic though.
