The 6.5 lb. scruffball turned 3 years old today! Since Jef and I forgot to celebrate her birthday last year, I figured she deserved a nice big present this year. Behold, her new chariot!
Yes, I’m one of those dog moms.
The stroller is for when Jef and I want to bring Sake with us on long hikes through areas that might have mountain lions or coyotes lurking. Sake’s already fought off one coyote, and I don’t want to tempt fate. It’ll also be nice to not have to carry her in a backpack or sling carrier, since those become uncomfortable for the wearer after a few miles.
Design work has wrapped up for the time being, so it looks like I’m finally free to dive back into the van work again. The batteries have arrived, and so has the mamma jamma inverter. I bought the solar panels and charge controller months ago so it seems like all our ducks are in a row. If Dad duties don’t get in the way, the electrical fun starts tomorrow …
