Birds & Worms

Out with the old, and in with the new...

Having fixed the ground problem with my headlights this morning, I now suspect that it was just a loose connection to the old tree rather than the tree itself, but nonetheless, replacing the one on the left with the one on the right can't possibly have been a bad idea. 

Some days here in this Vanagonsphere, when you least expect it, things just sort of flow. I rose shortly after seven this morning, had a leisurely cup of joe beside the bay before tearing into the above, and then made the necessary adjustments to the sliding door so that it would stop opening anytime I went over a moderate bump. After putting all my tools away and cleaning up, I checked the time and couldn't believe that it wasn't even 10:30 yet. Early birds and worms, folks, early birds and worms. 

So I celebrated with a nap. As any seasoned handyman would.

Numerous parts for this epic van project came from the good folks at GoWesty in Los Osos, one of the premier shops for Vanagon stuff, so when I stopped by the place in person for the first time this afternoon, it felt like something of a pilgrimage.
