I've seen kite surfers doing 40 feet leaps into the air, this is sedate by comparison. Although you could pull some serious Gs if you oversteered.

Celebratory cookout of lamb kofta.

Used this great recipe with local lamb, homegrown mint & lemon & sumac spice. Substituted honey for the pomegranate molassas. Cooked on wood from the old apple tree.

Re: %LGPV3NV78

I put the manifold together last week. It includes the fire hose valve, a valve for the house, and a drain valve. Also has a spare 1" outlet that's capped off in case I later want to add another water tank. It will be buried 2 feet deep.

I am currently missing 2 crimp rings (sheesh!!) and one threaded 1/2" pex fitting to complete the plumbing.

@joeyh

They are filling!

Finished enough connections to start pumping water into both tanks at 3:30 pm.

How long will it take to fill the entire 1100 gallons? Maybe a week...
