And... Barrel mission accomplished.  They only have a faint chocolate odor.  Much more pleasant than rancid hog.   :facepalm:

Yeah, I tried the rancid hog scented candles once, and I agree- stick with chocolate!   :D

Nice work.  Good you got the barrels sorted.  Curious why no rain catchment?  I'm sure y'all get some good rains.  Also curious why you have the water up onto that tower.  Not criticizing just curious.

edit.  I'm guessing the snow you also receive would deter from rain catchment.

I could do rain catchment but then it would have to be processed. This is town water so already treated, chlorinated etc.  Also we pay taxes so I don't feel bad taking water that way.  For a bigger water supply I'll be digging a well and doing treatment on that.  When we setup a greenhouse and grow food, I will definitely setup rain catchment for that purpose.

The height is for the same reason as water towers in cities.  For gravity feed/pressure to the campers and the shower stall Im building next.   :tu:

Then comes the hard rock mining to create a root cellar, then rail system to move the rock.  Basically Im 49 building things I wanted to when I was 16.  I mean how cool would a tower be on the main rock?

Yeah, that's cool and all, but do you want to be doing that at 2am?  You'd never get back to sleep!

Plus getting back to the bedroom would be challenging!

Oh no no no, you don’t go down the zip line, what you did does! They had something waaaay back on the discovery channel where someone bought one of those fire watch towers and turned it into a cabin, yet the one doing the interview asks the owner “what’s that big bullseye out in the woods”? So the owner was like that’s the bathroom, so everyone’s like :think: so the owner says “here I saved one from last night so you could watch” and then he goes over and gets a bag from his 5gal toilet, walks out onto the platform, hooks it to the zip line, and then just lets it zip like 500-1000ft off into the woods and right into a huge rock in front of a tree, needless to say the camera man got that bag absolutely perfect and they did it like idk how many times in slow motion! Thus the huge bullseye out in the woods!

So age caught up with me and lifting a small barrel of water caused a bulged disc in my back.  That had me out of commission for about a month.  I was up last week though and finally got the last posts and beams secured and the angled bracing. 

I even got the 2x8s bought and carried in for next trip up this week where I can actually start on the floor.  I'm still pushing on to have a roof before winter but it will be close!

Bulging disc: been there, wasted a lot of time and money over the years on the wrong treatment, fixed it myself easily.

Ah so you know the pain of that as well then...

They had me doing stretches to push it back in place and that did work but took along time.  I also found grabbing a tall branch or the rafters in the basement and hanging from them helped stretch out the spine.   

I'm free of pain now but very careful not to lift more than I should.  It was a small barrel of 50 litres of water so that's only 50kg, I guess that was over my limit.

A few years ago my back was so bad I could only play two games of cricket that season, and only then because they were desperate for players.
Lately I have been doing odd furniture removal jobs and before that I had a job lifting ~130kg bales of hops (the heaviest was 166kg) for 9½ hours a day and it was not a problem. Standing around all day is when I feel it these days.

What worked for me was ditching the chiropractors (as not evidence-based) and stretching my psoas and working my core and glutes.
I believe I have anterior pelvic tilt from years of sitting at a desk, as a result my hip flexors shortened and pulled my lower spine forward so I've been trying to undo that. I'm all about looking at how the human body should move and training in a way that works with that.

I believe most lower back (and many ankle and knee) issues are caused by problems in the pelvic area and the muscle imbalances they create.
Look out, you got me started now...
