Haircut, Van Repairs and Making Jelly Rolls

Friday March 23, 2018 Queen Canyon Road Kofa NWR Arizona

Rest up day

Today I planned to hang around the van at camp in Queen  Canyon on the Kofa.

I started out giving myself a haircut.haircut1


After a break I checked the van’s engine fluids. checks2


I added a bit of coolant to the radiator and the oil was fine.engine3


Checked out the noisy shock

Then I got some other tools out and checked out the  shock that had a loose mount on the way in to see just how bad it was.

Here’s the bad shock covered in oil as it’s leaking.shock4


Personally I think this shock is a bit too long in the body and may be hitting.oil5


Here’s the bottom mount bolt that I tightened on the way in the other day. The rubbers don’t look good so I’m gong to take it apart to check it out.rubber6

This rubber bushing doesn’t look good, but it’s the only one I have so I’ll have to put it back on for now.bushing8


I put all the shock stuff back together as it will work for now.

Making bread dough

After cleaning up and taking a break I decided to make some bread type dough. I’ve had some flour and water making yeast for over a week now and it looks like it might work for bread so I used it in this dough.dough9


I made these rolls to fry up.rolls10



I used coconut oil to fry them up in my wok.fry11


I put the big rolls aside as I have plans for them. I ate all the little pieces which were good and the homemade yeast did well.rolls12


I took it mostly easy the rest of the day doing some reading and watching this little guy checking my camp site for anything edible.chippy13


Jelly rolls

Later in the evening I put my jelly rolls together. This is what happened to the rolls I made earlier today. I was saving some black berry jam Dominique gave me for Christmas for this. Yummmmmmmmmmmmm.jellyrolls


That was my day.
