This was a week where the days seemed to fly by and we were suddenly at Friday evening, wondering where the week went! It was a busy one, with site visits and work meetings, climbing and training days, and a few days of van work. All in all, no complaining 🙂
Here’s what caught our eye online in the world of climbing, eating, cycling and repeating. Saturday Snippets for 17.June.2017.
On Climbing, Eating, Cycling and Repeating:
- We love Hawaiian Pizza. In fact, we make it most weekends (it’s our Sunday night go-to meal :)). I had no idea the inventor of this pizza was Canadian!
- Whenever I can sneak chocolate into a breakfast meal and call it healthy, I’m game. I bet these banana chocolate breakfast cookies would make great portable snacks, too.
- How much do you know about the sweeteners you’re using? This post has all the details! And, to add to it, here’s a few great ways to swap nutrient-rich dates for nutrient-absent white sugar.
- 4 things that top performers do every day. The first one was quite interesting, and totally makes sense to me.
On Moby News (aka Sprinter van conversion):
We’re in full-on kitchen mode! CNCing the butcher block countertop was a bit of a stressful moment (Jonty says that it was probably the most difficult cutting project he’s had to tackle, to date). But it worked, and it fits and we’re so happy with it!
- This week has been spent making mounts to attach the counter top to the 8020 frame (it’s not going anywhere!).
- The induction cooktop fits perfectly into its space, and so does the sink!
- We were googling how to secure an under-the-counter mounted sink and saw that Ambassador (our brand of sink) sells these little aluminum mounts for attaching to a wood counter. But why buy a mount, when you can just make a mount! So Jonty’s had to manufacture mounts, as well. To be fair, he went to a few places around town, before giving up and deciding to just do it himself. 🙂
- The next step is to use a waterproof epoxy on the exposed wood around the sink and faucet, and also fill in any knots and holes in the wood with this epoxy, too. We were pointed to the West System 105 marine epoxy, so hopefully next week we’ll be able to show some progress.
- Once the epoxy is applied, then we can Osmo the entire counter top, and it should be finished!
