With a second day of decent weather this weekend I was able to finally tackle the pipe.

For the most part this was pretty easy.....roll it out outside, clear out the space it was in, figure out where it's going to go.  I discovered some horrid messes however in a couple of the pipes...turned out those rolls of pipe were just perfect for some mice to decide to build little nests in the first two or three feet of the pipe.  They had drug everything into there.....bits of paper towels, leaves if they'd been able to, lots and lots of peanut shells (I assume they wanted those to lick off the salt).  I had to figure out a way to get all of that mess flushed out (a nice bit of flexible PVC pipe worked perfectly).  I then pondered for a moment about how to prevent mice from doing this in the future, and finally decided to rubber band some flexible mesh (left over from a failed screen for keeping bugs out) over each end.

One long and dusty afternoon later, there are now 17 rolls of pipe nicely capped, cleaned out and stacked along one garage bay.  There was a lot of sweeping, much extraneous dried mud cleaned up and dumped out into the gravel of the driveway, and enough bags of trash to now make another run to Ye Olde Trash Transfer Station next week. I think there's actually space cleaned up now that I could actually get those other five of rolls....hmmmm...........

But that's overall that's a good thing, really. I'm not by any means done yet, but things are done enough now that I can see and start moving and putting away the giant piles of tools taking up most of that bay of the garage.

And that is progress......
