Re: Elliot's Naked Bicycle Service, Piano Bar, & Much More 2017

The video was made with Galaxo Magic's Lumix TS4 camera, operated by a friend, he tells me.

Re: Elliot's Naked Bicycle Service, Piano Bar, & Much More 2017

Not at the camp, but I brought this piano for the Heardt art project.
It seems to have survived, so we will probably have it right in camp next year.
That's ePlayan Galaxo Magic at the ivories.

Re: Elliot's Naked Bicycle Service, Piano Bar, & Much More 2017

I will get back to this soon. But yeah, we are looking for an upgrade to the Crankbroke bearings. Toward the end of the week, we were cannibalizing our own bikes for usable bearings.

Not concentric.
No slack in the chain because these bikes have coaster brake. Slack chain = no brake.
Center wheel in frame as needed.

MaryAnimal is taking the year off, but Rick, Mars and Arne stopped by to visit on their way south.

Re: Elliot's Naked Bicycle Service, Piano Bar, & Much More 2017

For anyone who buys a cheap one-speed (or hub geared) new bicycle: Before riding a single inch, rotate the crank forward several times and feel for tightness. You can pick the rear wheel off the ground, or roll the bike forward, but you must "pedal" forward with your hand a number of turns...

Yes! Our own camp-members Rick & Mars and Arne are coming here after the eclipse in Oregon to help load, and one of them will drive Albatross.

Things are falling in place. (Though faaar behind schedule.)

We invested a ton of $$$ in a new bus, more shade, larger generator, and whatnot. Lots of whatnot. But we are out of the woods. The camp will be a smash hit as always. Next...

Re: Elliot's Naked Bicycle Service, Piano Bar, & Much More 2017

All righty, then.... Time to get serious. Apparently, half the Western United States And Canada -- including some of our Campers -- will descend on Oregon for the eclipse on the 21st, and that leaves me with nobody to drive Albatross from Clearlake to BRC on that date. Clearlake is about 90 miles no...
