Paddling Down to Casini Ranch and Fixed the Van’s Headlight Adjusters

Monte Rio to Casini’s and back

Since I hadn’t kayaked the Monte Rio area in awhile, I decided today would be a good day to do it. I put my boat in the water at the boat ramp and headed on down the river taking my time.river

Fixing the van’s headlight adjusters

After a short break, I worked on installing the van’s new headlight adjusters and put the headlight fixtures back together and did a rough adjustment of the lights. The new headlight adjusters worked out well and now the headlights are easy to adjust. I need to find tune the lights in the dark and then that project will be done.

That was my day for a nice one.
