Hello World
January 27th, 2019
----------------------------------------
I have no idea what I'm doing. This is my first attempt at phlogging. So,
I guess we'll see how this goes.
I have two more weeks until I need to go back to work. I've been on leave
since Christmas since my wife had a baby a few months ago. Frankly, I'm not
really looking forward to it. During my time off, I've slowly been working
on my project Truck. The engine is pulled, I replaced both the block and
head, which had cracks. When I bought the truck, I told myself if it ever
needed a new engine, I would do an electric vehicle conversion on it.
There is plenty of space under the hood, and I've read about people
installing an array of batteries and hooking them up to a second-hand fork
lift electric motor. I'm sure there is more to it than that, but the thought
of having a plug-in EV 1965 GMC truck was intriguing. I wonder what kind of
power it would output, and if I could really use it as a truck.
As it stands, I'm happy I am rebuilding the gasoline engine. This process
has been a lot of fun, and I'm learning a lot. I find a great sense of self-
sufficiency from doing this kind of work myself. It's a satisfaction that
I don't really get out of my day job. Probably one of the main reasons I'm
not especially looking forward to going back.
