Pegboard is so great!
Yesterday afternoon, I drove over to Ace Hardware in Lincoln City. Can't remember what I went to Ace to buy?

Hardware stores are so fantastic to browse! Gotta love it!

On the bottom shelf, across from about 100 acres of screws, bolts, etc., were a couple trays of wire things. Kinda fork shaped. What's this??

There was a label, which read:
"Fits 1/4 pegboard"

I asked one of the Ace guys: "Where's the pegboard?
Guy: "Over in lumber. Come-on. I'll show you."

I found out that pegboard comes in 4 foot x 8 foot sheets. But I could buy a half sheet. A quarter sheet. I tried the fork shaped thing. Wow! Works great!

I told the Ace guy: "I gotta go back to my truck. Take measurements. May I leave my stuff over here?"
Guy: "Sure!"

I bought a 1/2-sheet of pegboard. Cut to fit in TrĂ¡nsito. iPhone put his captured pic of that installed pegboard in yesterday's 3:05pm Blog post.

Here's a couple more if iPhone's pegboard pics.

Napping afternoon
Last nite, I didn't finish tweaking Pete Olson's music video until around 3am!

So, this afternoon, I spent hours in Scampy's comfy bed. I just woke up! Plenty of daylight to do a bunch of sorting out of stuff in TrĂ¡nsito's storage! Fun!



7:23pm:
Devil's Lake
For much of today, we have been Camping at Devil Lake's, Regatta Park.

A very lovely place, as you may see for yourself!

    1. Croft,

      I do not recall actually buying a pegboard before now.

      It boggles my mind, at how many things I'll be able to store on that pegboard!
      ➜ My set of open end/box wrenches, sorted out
      ➜ Hammers
      ➜ Wire baskets

      Everything on the pegboard, clearly visible!

    2. But not always a good idea when they can come off in a vehicle and become projectiles. Be sure to to have an adequate barrier between you and the hanging things.

    3. david h,

      There is a barrier. It is made of hardened steel wire. About 1/4" diameter.

      Thank you for your concern for my welfare.

    1. Joan,

      For me, Pegboard is not expensive and extremely versatile.

  3. If pegboard impresses you. Look up Slat Board!

    1. Andrew,

      Why do like Slat Board more than Pegboard?
