Gas Range Re-Engineering
I've Blogged to you about making the burner grate removable for easy cleaning. That's done.
The next thing is replacing the cheap clip that barely is secured to the stainless range pan. I've settled on a wood block to replace that cheap clip. The wood block shall have a threaded 1/4-20 screw that will be used to hold-down the range top.
With this "wood block/hold-down screw" in place, it will be sooooo easy to clean the range top after each use.
I'm thinking about making a video to show how the range top works after this project is complete.
8am - Morning things
- 24 Hour Fitness. The 24 Hour that I workout at is sooooo popular! No room for Scampy/Little Honda to park in their lot. That's why I went there at 10pm a few days ago. This morning I'm giving 10am a try.
- Home Depot. Buy what's needed for doing the range top project.
- WalMart Grocery. Shopping.
5pm - A ton of things!
We are at the Super Wash 'n Dry in El Cajon. This is an amazing day for us because we did a ton of things!
#1. We were driving toward the WalMart Grocery when, up on the hills we saw Dixieline. The hardware lumber store. We figured that Dixieline would be closed. New Years Day and all. But Dixieline was open! 😀
We purchased every single thing on our hardware store list:
- Everything for the Suburban Range project
- Everything for the water hose adapter project
#2. WalMart Grocery. We were at WalMart grocery shopping within the last couple of days. But we had made a grocery list again. So, we shopped at WalMart again.
#3. 24 Hour Fitness. We Blogged to you that MsScampy and Little Honda were not able to find parking space in 24's parking lot. Today was the same thing. No space!
Then, we noticed a 24 club member walking up the hill passed the filled up parking lot. We wondered perhaps if there was another parking lot up there?

#4. Super Wash 'n Dry. We were way overdue in our laundry chores. So, today we did our laundry.
Like we Blogged above! We did a ton of things today. 😎
5:30pm - Cousin Paul
My Cousin Jacky has a son. His name is Paul. I like Paul, and took him out for supper awhile back.
A little while ago, Little iPhone rang and it was Cousin Paul! He invited me out for supper. We went to Denny's.
We both ordered from the Senior+ menu. And both of us ordered the Tilapia. Good fish! Came with 2-sides and a cup of soup. Paul ordered a salad.
This was a very good time for me with Paul!
8pm - Nite Camped at John & Mimi's
I've Nite Camped here a whole lot on this Scampy trip. Makes things easier because John lets me use his shore power.
I've figured a good way to connect to that power. An extension cord goes overhead from a high trellis on John's home to Scampy. The cord goes up after 9pm and comes down before 6am. This is part of our "Stealth" routine.
We do not want to attract attention of people in the neighborhood with that electric cord.
