Mike, no UPS.  I have whole home surge protection and am working on auto switching back up generator set.

JR, camera's and access points are POE (power over ethernet) meaning they only require a single CAT6 connection with a 24v power injector, or a ethernet switch with POE capability like this one.

Ubiquity makes all the components and they all work together and can be configured and monitored remotely.  Highly recommend them.

Yeah pretty much. I have some friends that are experts. If I get stuck I call them.  Installed a few more cameras today.  Here’s the one in the seacan.  Also got most of my bookcase built

It’s where my reloading books and scales etc will go

Just need to face frame it.

something like this.  The guy in the video put a second right side folding section which is nice because they'll fold flat.  Or you can put front seats in the back which will allow you to add seat heaters and make them power adjustable.

Very civilized

So today the plan was to move all the AV and security cameras and internet to the structured wiring closet in the casita. Recall that I ran 6 CAT6 cables between the main house and the casita and then 3 more CAT6 between the seacan and the casita.

I have one directv receiver and one dvd player that also streams.  I have a 4x4 switching matrix that can send any of 4 signals to any of 4 tvs,which will work out fine once I add the 3rd tv, which will be in the casita. Depending on how bad the teen years are, I may add a 4th in the seacan.

The 100Mb connection comes into the main house and then is sent to the casita and distributed to the computer, av equipment, a wireless access point for the outdoors and guest house and outside cameras as well as to the seacan for wifi access point and camera.  I also have a rack mounted computer that will serve as the security video recorder and network storage device. The baluns inside the main house also send IR/remote signals to change settings and channels to the video equipment

in the main house it also is connected to security cameras around the exterior of the house.

I still have a lot of configuring and aiming of the cameras to be done but the bones are done.

Dont know that the pre rangers want to sit right next to each other for long road trips.

Have you thought about putting captains chairs, or two more front seats in the back and have the cooler in the middle?

Found this large and heavy box on the porch yesterday.  Haven't opened it but I suspect its a grizzly locker.....

Today I have a buddy coming over to help finish the structured wiring, installing cameras, and move all the AV equipment to a central wiring closet in the casita.

Still no exact ETA on the staircase....

Made it back from Miami today.  The weather was beautiful.  I'm too pasty to be a beach guy but it was perfect for me.  60 at night and 80 in the day.  Nice breeze and sun.  Did a little cruising on A1A and Ocean drive today before heading back.

Looking forward to getting my Grizzly locker in the mail tomorrow!  Realistically it will probably sit in the shop for a month before I get around to installing it....

That’s the reason why I hate to pay people to do anything.  Some crews are better than others. The Sheetrock guy I hired only does the taping and floating and he subs out the rock.

The expectation, unless you state otherwise when they are providing the estimate is that all they have to do is walk in and cut and place rock and then float and tape.  Waste and trash is your responsibility. They should have told you when you got the estimate that you had to have all the stuff off the walls and ceiling before they got there. 

I backed my trailer near the front door as I had them at least throw all their scraps in the trailer which made it easy for me to dump it.

Moral of the story is don’t assume anything and be specific in your contract.  Mine left a lot of mud dropped and smeared on the sub floor which I wish I had covered because I had to sand it off. They also spattered it all in my roughed in shower which I had to clean off to get prepped for tile.

At least they masked the windows with plastic....

So in the end, did they do a good job with the rock and tape? Smooth and decent?

I’ll play contrarian.  Given your time constraints.

Put some silicone on it slap it back together and drive it. It may leak but it won’t be the end of the world. Drive it on your trip and put some miles on it and then in a year pull it down and drop the stroker kit in it.

Probably not a bad idea but I’m not DD this thing so quite a bit of the mileage is either straight line highway or on gravel

Next up will likely be a shackle flip and an e or air locker for the front.  This will never be a crawler but it will see some muck and trails.

That will complete the suspension/driveline portion of the complete rebuild as everything else has been replaced or rebuilt.

Then I can focus on building the block I have sitting out back of the shop.  It will be an LBY/LLY heads and compound turbo with 40 overs most likely.  Driveable reliable and 650 to the wheels is the goal.

It's for hunting. Drops a pin on the route so you can go back to the original location to start a new search if you lose the trail, or it gets too dark to track the animal.

OK, that makes more sense.

I recently upgraded my Suunto Vector (8 years of good use!), to a Suunto Traverse Alpha. The GPS function is more accurate than any handheld I've ever used. Rechargeable, and the battery typically lasts me a couple weeks. I've been wearing it daily for about 6 months now, through multiple field training exercises, with no wear, and I'm pretty tough on a watch. The sapphire lens is extremely tough, not a scratch on it. If you're looking for a relatively simple GPS watch, with limited smart watch options, I highly recommend it.

Both are workable.  Remember he has a solid bottom and it was in the bed of a truck.  As long as you aren't filling those drawers tip to tip with M855 I doubt you'll ever have problems with them.

well for a guy with that much woodworking equipment, he didnt use a drop of glue. - bad
i liked the way he installed the carpet on the bottom of the drawers and then attached the sides
the poly sliders on the bottom seems like a good idea too.

No offense taken. Open to suggestions.

Trump for his good or bad traits, showed that the grassroots conservatives can overcome the liberals and their money. 

How do we motivate our base and keep them motivated?  A conservative mayor here lost by 6000 votes in a city of 3.5 Million.

With little chance of making it happen, Id support removing he right to vote from anyone as long as they are in government assistance, with exception for military and social security, which are earned.  No logical person could argue that subsistence on government would make it nearly impossible for a person to vote against their interest if more free stuff from the government. Which is the democrat playbook, especially with blacks. Which is why people like Candace Owens is challenging blacks to think for themselves and 50 years of liberal rule as left the black man no better,and in most cases worse than before. The the movement is called Blexit. Black exit from the democrat party.
