Made a battery holder with Devin and Emily for the power cube

Assisted with final power cube assembly

Made two diesel runs

Sunday, July 6, 2014

Worked with Guillamme in assembling power cube frame with 4x4 tubing. Miscommunication resulted in our having to take apart the partially completed frame and rebuild it from the beginning.

Went to Osborne for diesel. After getting it I discovered a closer place to get diesel. MFA Oil is between the farm and Maysville, about half a mile along Hwy 33; and their diesel is cheaper than what I got in Osborne.
