Episode Transcript

Image: A Baker Bivy tent design using two tarps smaller than 12x12 feet...

"Hot Zone"

Master/Disaster - Doubleplus Alright

Theory:
Tent Condo vs Bivy

Image: For a couple days after doing the show I played around with the 'Baker Bivy' designs. You can go from three pairs of tent poles to no poles, just guy lines and stakes. Six poles allows a small Baker-style rocket stove campfire...    Image: An example of uncut tarps using only two poles, placed between the rear 'vestibule' and the sleeping space, with back, sides and front staked and guyed down. A pair of two or three ft. poles placed at four feet provides more encolsed headroom in the 12 x 14 bivy; a 10 x 12 rain tarp works as well as it would be more openly staked...    Image: Detail, handlebar sling standoffs... Image: The standoffs clear 2.75 inchesfrom the bar, enough to move the sling body off the brake and shifting levers, though it still rests against the cables...   

Open Mic Stage: Bay Area Blitzpop...

Practice:
Mobile Control Panel...

Image: While shopping for the tarps, next up is the mobile power control panel. These cheap plastic dollar store tubs tend to crack and split easily, so I cut a piece of Plastruct to hold the actual components. This is the last piece from my ill-conceived powerbox project (I don't remember what I was gonna do with 600V DC strapped to my hip once the Ac part stopped working...)    Image: The dremel helped shape the toggle switch holes...
   Image: Access port for the controller cleared...

Covid Nazis...




Practice:
Baker Bivy...

Image: The handlebar extension bracket only extends 2.5 in...    Image: The weakest part of the $20 granny cart, wheels with plastic spokes. I doubt these would carry more than 50 lbs...    Image: Ace Hardware has the same size replacement steel and rubber wheels that the sales copy says has 150 lb. carry capacity. The steel spokes here are properly attached to the rim. The upgrade will make the granny cart a real cargo trailer...    Image: The steel wheels came in a few days early, so I rode over to the Haight-Ashbury Cole Hardware store (which reminded me that I need to do more riding regardless of the lockdown) and picked them up...    Image: Example of an old school Baker Tent, from Boy Scouts 'Handbook for Patrol Leaders 1949'...
