MiloWeasel in Space

We sailed back to G'Town on Friday. The trip was slow thanks to the non-existent wind, but we got there eventually. I'm not sure what's up with the wind. We aren't forecast to see more than 5 knots for the next 6 days. How lame is that?

Anyhow, when we returned to the harbour, we opted to anchor close to town to help facilitate taking on fresh water. It seems we are almost out and so tomorrow I will begin to refill our 85 gallon tank, 15 gallons at a time.

While we're at it, we need to do some laundry and talk to the refrigerator dude to see if he can refill our freon. I successfully patched the stab wound, but the way the Engel was constructed prohibits an average Joe (me) from refilling the coolant.

I'm not sure why they didn't just install a valve that I could hook a can up to instead of folding, crimping and soldering the end. It probably cost like 5 cents more to do and so they said "no". Ass clowns!

In other news, a girl I used to know in college, who now works for NASA, found our website and has been following along for while. Her husband also works for NASA in some sort of imaging department and he gave her a picture which she forwarded to me which I have entitled "MiloWeasel in Space".

I've had to shrink the image down quite a bit to post up here, but in the original she sent me, MiloWeasel is visible from space, tucked in near the Queen's dock off of Hamburger Beach. I'm not entirely sure, but I think she said this picture is from either the last or the next to the last space shuttle mission which would have been in 2011.

Pretty cool, huh?

Other than that, not a lot is going on around here. Almost all of the bar/restaurant establishments are closed for the slow season and will remain so until October, when the boats and "Tour-ons" return. I guess it'll be a quiet couple of weeks.

Be safe, it's dumb out there ....

Ok, so where is the space pic ? Also, tell the refer tech to install schrader valves on the high (pressure) and low side of the refer and then get yerself one of those cheapy automotive A/C manifold sets so you can service it from here out. Just a thought.


   Hopefully you see the space picture at the top of this entry. I do. And so does Amy. I am hopeful that i can get reefer dude to install the valves just as you mentioned and then I could use my $30 NAPA R-134a refill kit and be back in business. I'll post how it works out.


Tom, why don’t you put several small pockets in your awning to collect rain water like our ancestors did thousands of years ago. Attach a hose or two and you'r in business, you could also do the same with your stack pack to collect water on the go. Just a thought. Have a nice life.

Michael, Indeed we do have a viable catch mechanism from our sun shade, but with the rainy season behind us, all we get now are violent storms and while they produce lots of water, they also produce heavy winds that make keeping the shade up ill-advisable. Oh well, if that's the worst problem we face this week, we're doing ok. regards,

By the way, if you look to the nine o'clock position of the space shuttle, you'll see Great Exuma and if you look close you can see Hamburger Beach, the monument, and a very, very, very tiny Dream Catcher near the shore.


I suppose the a/c tech will vacuum the unit down too as part of his testing ? If not your gonna need to do it. Tell him to add the correct measure of refrigerant oil as well. You probably know all this but just an FYI.
P.S. I do see the "space" pic and  if I squint really hard I get a headache...
