    Figuring out where I am going today.
    It's a blistering 4 Degrees Celsius, going to 9C and it's sunny!

    Tightened my head bolts, going to get a full tank of gas, going to a couple places I may have never been to before around here. Going to some trails, going to check on junk piles. Got about 5kg's of tools, water, lock and chain, and whatever in my backpack. (swear it must weigh more than that though)
    But I'm still in front of this computer!

    Do you look at Google Maps and head out to curious spots?

    Going....NOW!

    And here we are wondering where spring is!
    Double digits soon though!

    Trying to make a couple extra dollars somehow, been finding copper from old monitors, TV's, old motors, whatever.
    Used Google Maps to plot a course of where I am going to go.

    Scored alright out there today, found a junked projector TV, 3 copper coils, a ton of aluminum in it, had to leave behind a bunch of stainless steel and aluminum pot and pans.

    My Unemployment Insurance ran out couple weeks ago, my father has me doing work for him and my brother with his new house, keeping me above water a bit.

    Just waiting for that call.

    PS, got up to 61.83 Kmh on a flat today!
