June 21st

I started the day installing a winch system that Dad got me for the bicycle.  Interestingly, it seems to want to mount to the 4" wide part of a 2x4, where that'd be the vertical side.  So I used a couple of spare pieces of 2x4, and mounted them to the beams in the garage, then mounted the winch to those.  It's actually a lot of work to winch the bicycle up, and I'd need to find somewhere to mount the holder for the rope (I'd assumed that it'd hold itself, as there's a sort of latching system).  Anyway, I decided that I could hook the thing up to the old hooks quicker than I could winch the thing up, so we took it down.  I am, however, going to look at maybe winching the hang glider up to the roof with it.

Of course, I felt like flying, so it was windy all bloody afternoon.
