Without missing a day in my journal. Currently in #75.
We went to Momentum in Lehi for Jaxon’s Christmas present. We climbed for three hours, then went to ARUP to donate platelets. We ate a ton of wings at Buffalo Wild Wings, watched a basketball game and went back to Momentum to climb for another 90 minutes. We did some harder sections tonight. Jaxon did really well. We had a fun, manly day.
We went to the open house for the Provo City Center Temple tonight. It was converted from the tabernacle after the fire in December 2010. It is a beautiful building. It style resembles a 100 year old building and the stained glass is gorgeous. We could definitely feel God’s love while we were there.
I took Mason to Sundance to learn to snowboard for his Christmas present. He did well. This is him going through Butch’s Cabin. We took a snowboard lesson from Nick for 2.5 hours, took a break for lunch, then hit the slopes seven more times. It was a blast.
Step #3 was to cut the bottom off the 14.5 oz can.
Step #4 was to cut flaps in the #10 can.
Step #5 was to cut slits in the 14.5 oz can that runs horizontally through the other two cans. The piece on the left is a shelf to feed tinder and provide oxygen.
Step #6 was to cut a circle in a #10 can lid. It holds the insulation around the 28 oz can and allows the fire to escape.
Step #7 was to fit the 14.5 oz can through the #10 can and the 28 oz can.
Step #8 was to pack insulation between the #10 and 28 oz can, place the #10 lid and bend a few tabs over to hold the lid in place.
Step #9 was to place the shelf in the horizontal can. Tinder goes on the top, and oxygen flows through the bottom. The hole I cut in the #10 lid was too big, which is why you can see the insulation. I need to do a better of of cutting the tabs next time, but I think it turned out pretty well for my first try.
