Saturday Snippets: 26.November.2016

As we get towards the end of the year, I feel like every week just passes by even quicker than the last! This week was filled with travel and training and Christmas events (if you live in Vancouver, check out the Arts Club for their annual Christmas plays).

Here’s what caught our eye online in the world of climbing, eating, cycling and repeating. Saturday Snippets for 26.November.2016.

On Moby News (aka Sprinter van conversion):

  • It’s still electrical news on the Sprinter front. Is anyone getting bored yet? Jonty has finished getting the batteries into the box and securing all sides with some foam. It’s solid!

  • He also spent some time back at MakerLabs this week, starting to get many of the electrical components organized and secured onto a board. The plan is to have the battery box sitting on the floor, between the rear wheel wells. These components, along with the inverter, will be secured between the battery box and the wheel well.

  • The next step is getting this into the van and securing it into place! A minor lower-back tweak for Jonty at the gym yesterday has delayed this process (we need to be in tip-top shape to move that beast of a battery box!), so here’s hoping the tweak is short-lived.

Happy Weekend!
