Well, I did put a healthy coat of wood protectant on the ramp, which should stave off the worst of any winter damage. And I did some fiddling around with a motor/gearbox piece that I snarfed from an old cheapie cordless drill in consideration of an idea, but with no specific purpose yet.
I spent some time in the basement just sort of noodling on projects and space, and was just kind of happy about it. It's not yet ready space, but it's getting there, like Slowly-Butt Shirley.
Gonna hide in the basement for a while again.
