After spending some years, way back when, engaging in field archaeology and actually making a living at it (which is somewhat unusual), I left for greener pastures on another continent.
Those pastures turned out to be not so green after all and I returned to the area where I was born.
Life, you know? All sorts of interesting things happen to all of us. No one else really cares, but hey, such is life.
I decided to head back into archaeology, and back into formal schooling for it. Getting older sure as hell doesn’t make it easy. Retention and memory aren’t what they used to be. Nor is energy level for that matter. So….plodding along. Trying to make it work. Learning some new things, but notebooks are more important than they used to be.
At least I’m able to travel more with the family, and we’ve got some plans to move to a very different area and clime. That’ll be coming up soon, and maybe I’ll have more to say once we’re there.
Regarding the focus of this blog, well, it’s definitely going to have more cold weather to deal with. Maybe another Unimog is in my future too, I’ll need more load bearing capacity where we’re going.
The Puch Haflinger is still in rewiring stage, but I did get the cylinder and head back on. Maybe I’ll get back into the rewiring today, need to put the starter solenoid, relay, and the new regulator into the engine bay. At least things are now rewired. Tires are working out well on it, they’re the Black Diamond units. I’ll post what model they are in a later, more detailed post. For those of you that want to know more about SDP Haflingers, head on over to Markus’ site TheHaflinger dot com forum . Lots of owners over there, and a decent amount of activity. Plus the old information is invaluable.
