2023 Labor Day Adventure
The 2023 Labor Day weekend started off kind of crappy. Saturday I discovered that my sewage lines were backing up in my basement. I attempted to snake them and got covered in poop, but was unable to get it un clogged. I called a good plumber I know, but he was swampped with work. Luckily the apartment's bathroom was draining downstream from the blockage, so we were able to use that shower and toilet. On Sunday I was able to get the drains unclogged after purchasing a 90 degree elbow for an electrical conduit, which I was able to slide into the pipe and used it to help guide the snake down the correct path. It isn't much fun playing in shit, so that was kind of a bummer for the day. But I only spent $9 on the elbow which is what ended up unclogging the drain. So I was able to fix the issue and save money.
I also traded in my old phone this weekend, and got myself a OnePlus Nord N300 for 'free'. It is a surprisingly good phone for the money. The camera is a huge upgrade from my old HTC U11, and the audio is great. I also do like the Wi-Fi Hotspot feature and how it actually gives you live stats on how much data you are using. The phone also uses Oxygen OS which is a little different from a standard Android build, and allows you to use apps in windowed modes. Kind of neat. The main thing is that now I have a functional phone. The HTC U11 was getting old and unreliable when it came to using the phone aspect of it.
On Monday we were determined to have a good time. I found out that the Geneseo National Warplane Museum was having a $10 Breakfast event, where you just paid $10 for breakfast and got free admission to the museum too! So why not. My little wolf pup got to experience his first time inside a few planes, including a Russian AN-2, and a C-130 Hercules. I tried to convince my mate to go for a ride, but by the time she was ready to consider it, they had stopped offering rides.
I was hoping that we could snag a ride up on Whiskey 7, but we were a little too late for that. Maybe next time! But we then ventured off to Letchworth Park since it was nearby. It was hot but figured that we needed a good hike.
After the hike we visited the Lower Falls Resturant to refuel and refresh ourselves. Then the journey home began. All in all a fun adventure.
