It is a cool bike, not ideal to ride 50km on it. My boy was persistent to go on it

Tried my hand at reupholstering my old bike saddle for my dads vintage peugeot project. Not bad for the first time imo.

I think the desk design is as good (if not better than) the desk construction - it’s impressive enough to be good at working wood, never mind designing furniture

Thanks Mike, one major design flaw.. the slot to the left of the drawer was meant to house his PS4, i put a neat hole at the back to allow for the HDMI and power cables but on my way to bed i could hear some high pitched whirring noise coming from his room, i went upstairs and the PS4 was mad-hot (intensive mining or crafting or whatevs) obviously not enough air circulation so ive moved it and plugged the hole.. no one needs to know!

I have not been on sufu for a while, and I should post some updates on the TCB contest thread, but here are some photos I took on a hike up the Pacific coast which was mostly in Olympic National Park a couple months ago. I actually did most of the hike in my TCBs which was funny because hiking in denim is against all Official Hiking Rules. It was actually kinda funny because I ran into a guide group of completely newbie hikers (who had camped nearby) and I apologized to the group leader for setting a horrendous example to them. He said, 'Yeah, if one of them showed up in jeans at the trailhead I would not had let them on the hike." Let it be known though, I did have appropriate gear and clothing. After this trip we got hit with 120F (49C) temps outside my house (officially 108F in the city I think) which sucked.

I was shocked this tree was still standing. But maybe not for long.

TCB S40s in front of a camp. I did wash them after the trip and repaired the back of the cuffs. It was actually hard to find campsites on/near the beach because it was a super full moon and high tide brought the water all the way up to the trees and most of the terrain was very cliff-y beyond the beach

Threatened rain all trip, but fortunately none came down,

One campsite. The water eventually lapped up to that piece of driftwood beside the tent.

Evening panoramic (a bit obviously stitched together) of the cove we spent most of the time in. During most of the time, the tides blocked off both ends so no one could pass so it was very cut off. During low tide one could walk out through the tidepools to those large rocks way in the distance.

Someone collected a bunch of crabs.

Big whale bone. There were a lot of bones and huge pieces of vertebrae and shells in mound that had just been recently exposed so it was clearly a processing area in the distant past.

 

bone.jpg.08a2fafe2acaff64c226a4cd8479cf04.jpg

 

Tide is going out in this tidepool.

Hole-in-the-wall. The tides totally block this during high tide, but in this case one can escape overland up the steep cliff on the left.

Drove down to New Mexico last week for a couple friends' wedding; decided to make the most of the trip & went for a quick hike in the Pecos Wilderness, just east of Santa Fe

It's easy to forget that New Mexico has real mountains. In my mind, as an outsider, it's all high desert—with some nice hills, maybe, but nothing properly up there. Made it to camp the first afternoon and found myself swimming in an alpine lake at 12k', which was a great surprise; if there had been more clouds in the sky (or if I'd thought to bring long pants) I might have made it up to some summits well past 13. The scenery was consistently pretty, but what really made me fall for the area, as a [draught-ridden] Californian, was just how much water was flowing, even now in late Summer. Never needed to carry more than a couple liters with me at a time, & it was beautiful

Featuring (though not shown) Bubo Skagit & Bushmaster, + White's Hikers. This was my first serious use of the Skagit, and it did a lovely job—definitely worthy of some real wear. Meanwhile, really not a fan of the Bushmaster shorts, as much as I'd like to be—the overall design's great and the material's a good fit, but they're put together terribly—more on that later, maybe

yes to Louisville Sluggers (and associated base ball gubbins; got my hands on an old Easton glove; a veritable tank...)

and yes to the lovely work; us fools of the olde smoke live mostly in cupboards so kids rooms are subdivisions within subdivisions...

^That's an old Wilson mitt

The Louisville Slugger is a bit chipped and dinked cos when i was living in rented digs, my bed was totally fucked so i made a new'un at work and asked the landlord to remove the old one, she didn't and it was stuck in the back garden for ages so in the end i battered it into pieces with the baseball bat, i regret it now but i didn't have a TV back then and it was cheap entertainment :D... not long after, i was having a fire in the garden (to burn the bed and other stuff) and i set the nextdoor neighbours fence on fire so i ran into the bathroom (which oddly, was downstairs) turned the bath tap on full blast in a panic and the tap came off in my hand so i had a fire in the garden and a flood in the bathroom occuring at exactly the same time :D
