packing and baking..
this trip we will drive to seward then put all our gear on a boat and be transported out to a cabin in aialik bay. then we can just settle in for 3 nights before getting picked back up again.
this is a grebe above. cheney lake.
i am grateful to the gentleman who washed my car at honda and when he drove it out for me to pick up noticed that the car was riding funny. he noticed one of the lug nuts had fallen off the tire when he got out of the car. upon further inspection it was noted that none of my tires lug nuts had actually been tightened on my tires. lucky i didn't try to drive to seward and have my tires go flying off.
i have heard a few horror tales of this sort of thing. there are thousands of cars getting their tires changed over 2x/year and it's bound to happen that one or more tires somewhere in there won't get mounted correctly. it's pretty rare i guess though. i just want it safe for my drive to seward tomorrow. for your birders out there, that was a red necked grube. above is a greater scaup and below is some sort of gull. those all just look to similar to me.
he did talk to me later and said he was wrong. that is always nice and the added bonus is that he may listen to me a bit more next time something comes up. it takes some time to establish yourself in any unit. takes time for doctors to trust you. got the guy loaded with drugs and transported him up to the adult unit.
