I had planned on a pretty long bike ride this morning before it got hot, but several nearby forest fire that started yesterday from lightening strikes created some air quality I wasn't real thrilled about riding in. Hopefully it will clear out in a few days.





Total Time: 01:43:00

Sandbag Construction
I used 2 nylon weave sandbag that one can buy at Home Depot filled with 25# of play sand. I double bagged them and put both inside this medium size generic duffel bag. The pig ears are just wraps taking up the extra space and makes the bag tighter. I can fit another 25# bag, maybe two, in the duffel when I want. The handles are taped together to keep them from flapping around.
Approx Size: 16x12x12
weight: 50#

Slosh Pipe
I put together a Slosh Pipe today.
It cost about $40.00, which is about $20.00 more then it should have, but our local ACE
Hardware didn't carry 4" PVC so I used ABS pipe and fittings. After gathering all the materials, it took about 15 minutes to put the whole thing together.
This, plus some PVC cement and water is about all you need


At 34 lbs., getting it overhead isn't the issue

About the time you think it's stable, the water sloshes and it takes everything you have to keep it from going to the ground


Slosh Pipe
length: 9'2"
Diameter: 4"
Weight: 34 lbs.
Filled half full with 3 gallons of water
