    I did a bunch of stuff to my bike. Added a hatchet, lighter, multi-tool, 9x12 tarp, 100 ft of paracord, spare chain, a couple of hose clamps. Previously I put a tire repair kit, a spare front and rear innertube, and a 12 volt compressor on there. I also put a piece of 3" abs pipe with screw on ends on the highway peg bar for tools. I cant handle ANY breakdown, but Im well set up for the common stuff. I could also spend a night in the bush in relative comfort if I had to.

    Work buddy gave me a small chest freezer for free, so I can start stacking meat

    2 weeks into using the universal gym at least once per day (twice a day about 50% of those days). Takes longer each year to get into hunting shape it seems.

    I’m a shape for hunting. Probably not the one I should be.... Thankfully the right camouflage can trim twenty or thirty pounds....

    You guys can freeze raw peppers too with success. I chop a bunch up, freeze em and use em for easy omlette fillers with diced ham, mushrooms and cheese. Somewhat useless factoid - The mushrooms fill you up but have like zero calories and they are keto friendly. Been feeding a lot of weirdo diets recently and mushrooms come up a lot.

    Picked up another contract so that's nice. Freezers are full, TP stocks are high.

    "Chicks" are on grower feed - anticipating eggs in a month (?), so they aren't babies anymore. They've murdered one blueberry bush but I have 13 more and I haven't had to mow the yard.

    Apple tree has a good sized crop happening. I have 3 sad little tomatoes and two ridiculous celeriac forests. Does anyone eat this celeriac stuff? Zero corn grew this year and only had a measly batch of strawberries. Each year my harvests are whack. I never know what is actually going to grow. Really kicking myself for not rejigging my irrigation system in the spring when the ground was bare.

    Checked the propane tanks - to make sure they were all there and none had leaked
    Did the monthly run up on the gen set.
    Made sure the gasoline supply for the gen set was adequate and fresh
    Check the inventory of dc batteries
