We (Karl) managed to get the wiring done for the trailer yesterday! It involved a lot of mumbo jumbo lingo that I didn't understand, but basically you take the wire that connects your two taillights, add some thingamajig that runs to the trailer and your battery, and you're good to go. My contribution was handing Karl tools, and zip tying things under the hood that Karl's big fat man fingers couldn't reach.
We hoped to attach the hitch today, but the impending doom of thunderstorms eliminated that option. It also looks like it's going to rain the rest of the week, too, so I looked up some stats:
Average yearly rainfall in Pittsburgh: 37.85 inches
Average yearly rainfall in Anchorage: 16.08 inches
Score one for Alaska!
Of course the average yearly snowfall is a bit different as well:
Pittsburgh: 43 inches
Anchorage: 70.6 inches
So I've been spending most of my time getting ready for the craft shows next weekend and at the end of the month and redesigning my labels and brochure since I finally broke down and bought Photoshop Elements (my old version was from 2001). Totally worth it, by the way.
