It was time to spray the logs, but we determined the sprayer that we had gotten (really cheap) would not work, and we had to get another one. My husband found one online that looked good, and asked me to order it. I think I ordered the wrong one.
But we were going to try. It was new, what could go wrong, right?
So we take it to the property load it up with our ‘preserving’ concoction, and I get to go spray the logs. So, I pump it, and try.
Notice I have the directions that I am holding on to between my legs there. They would’ve blown away otherwise. So, I was reading directions, but it still wasn’t working.
Yes, I was cold, and look like a
stick stiff figure here. But we wanted to get our logs sprayed! ! ! And here we are now. . .
We tried over and over again to determine what exactly was NOT working on our 2nd sprayer that we bought. All I can come up with is that the ‘concoction’ was not diluted, and had crystallized somewhat, and therefore was clogging up the sprayer, or too thick to get through the sprayer.
At least for the day! No more trying to spray logs with a sprayer not working. It’s okay. Really, it is. (I think I am still trying to convince myself.)
As it turns out, our 90 day return window for taking the sprayer back has come and gone. We decided that we would try again with it after we heat the solution up again and dilute it. So there you have it. Part 1 ~Failure! But we did learn that what we were doing was not working, and we have ideas about what to try next time.
In the meantime, we will have our little lunch at our little picnic table in our little spot.
And maybe we will just work on leveling the ground for the outhouse in the meantime?
Oh, and BTW, our logs look terrible now. What did I expect??
I still have hope. We can clean them up, and then spray them. We have to get on this!
Just “Thank you LORD!” for practices so that we have the chance to get this right before we get our REAL logs.
