Before we left, I took care of a couple of chores. First, I called Proline Trailers in New Hampshire to order more aluminum blocks that secure the Condor chocks to the floor. Anyone who saw the process of removing the blocks from one channel to slide them into another when switching from single bike mode to double will remember it wasn't the easiest job. With the new blocks, I can leave a set in each channel so that moving the chock will be much easier.
The second task involved calling Turf King about our lawn. We haven't had a lawn service since 2007, about the time parts of the front and back yard were re-sodded. The sodded areas were good until this year, when they suddenly started sprouting gigantic weeds including dandelions, plantains and some things I have never seen before. Turf King provides aeration, fertilizing, insect control and weed treatments throughout the season, including an optional in-depth weed treatment. Owner Rob will call me Tuesday about coming by to do an inspection and plan a strategy.
