We all know the garage is the most important part of the house. It’s the home for all father’s toys. Very often it’s also a home for all the kids toys as well as washer and dryer =). I’ve spent some time planning my garage and in this post I will share results with you.

Long before I bought a truck, I knew that I will have mobile ham radio installed in it. As it is a new truck, I did not feel comfortable drilling any extra holes, so I’ve spent some times finding the way to install all of it with minimal damage. In the post I will describe what it takes to install a Kenwood v71a dual band radio into Tundra TRD Pro.
I’ve done my second trip to Hollister Hills park this weekend, to a Hudner Ranch section of it. This time I felt more prepared: I had my compressor with me and MaxSA traction pads. I’ve aired done tires and caressed the gate.
Last Black Friday was really successful for me as I’ve managed to find a deal for DJI Phantom 3 Standard. It set me back for $499. The nice thing about Phantom 3 is that it comes with a 3 axis gimbal and camera. The drawback is that you can not swap the camera on your own.

Our daughter, Kate, is 3.5 years old. It is always a challenge for us to send her to sleep. It’s really hard for her to slow done. She always wants to have more fun or hear more stories instead of sleeping. And even when we succeed with making her fall asleep, it often happens that she wakes up in the middle of the night and migrates to our bed. My wife believes that it is caused by some micro-environmental changes in her room: humidity, temperature or something else. It sounded like a challenge for a geeky dad, and I’ve decided to build sensor board that would be collecting certain metrics in her room throughout the night.
