Patching leaky waders.
Let me know how it went . . .
Once my waders start leaking, it seems like a losing battle.
I should have started on the inside. The outside patches look like I sat on a rubber cement bomb but I got the hang of it by the time I moved to the inside.

A new pair will be on my winter shopping list. I've been averaging 3 fishing trips a week since April so its probably time to drop the dough for some Simms G3's.

I was curious about those and was astounded that they are about $500

$300 for the waders. $200 for the street cred.

Like a pair of Air Jordan's on an urban basketball court.

I'm wondering if it's worth the effort to sand down and refinish an old wood cutting board that's gotten splintery.

Cutting rebar into 62 pieces, 2-1/2' long to spike down a mess of landscape timbers

Easiest job ever. 45 minutes total and probably 10 minutes of that was looking for an 18mm socket and 1/2" torque wrench. Finally gave up on looking for the torque wrench and just guesstimated with a foot long cheater pipe.

I'm working on thinking about eradicating the weeds in my backyard.
