Two weeks ago I worked out a rough plan for getting Fenchurch back on the road in time to drive her to Redemption at the end of the month. I'm already about a week behind (ie. everything is taking twice as long). I might still make it if nothing else goes wrong and I cut a few corners, but the former is unlikely and I don't want to do the latter. Time to start figuring out alternative travel arrangements...
In lieu of a full list of the jobs I've done recently, I'll point you back at the TODO list, where I've been crossing out things as I finish them.
Update 1: I successfully shaved off the last of the varnish using a specially sharpened woodworking chisel.
Update 2: Train to Redemption booked.
