So speaking of washing ropes. As I noted I washed my 2 60m ropes. Used the Sterling Wicked rope wash. Just dunked and sloshed them in a plastic tub. Got a ton of dirt out. Rinsed them about 6-8 times each, and by the end very little soap film in the water. But they still had a soapy feeling film on them as they dried.
Any one else notice this. Any recommendations on what to do? Use a diff soap? Let them soak overnight for the last rinse off? Is it just the way they feel when damp? Or???
Any help here?
Or am I going to have to post in general?????
Crickets?

Get your washer on rinse-cycle ready.

Run one cycle to clear the drum, then run the rope through a few times, at least it will agitate a little and get the "cleaner" out.

I never liked washing my ropes. Yeah, it works to get the dirt off, but I've always found it took a long time to dry them.

I have no idea if that film is good or not. sorry
I like washing the ropes occasionally.
My thinking goes. Get the dirt out, with less dirt there is less wear, and ropes last longer. Yea they take a long time to dry. But I'm not going anywhere anytime soon.
Thinking back now, I pretty sure the last time I washed one it got a film on it. The concern there is the soap will hold the dirt and the rope gets dirtier faster. Defeating the purpose.

where do you leave it to dry?

Mine have taken up to a week to dry in the past. Since I don't have a good indoor space to leave it for a week, it always seemed inconvenient.

I do get your point though.

Should be able jump past the wash cycle to go directly to the rinse cycle.
I did agitate it by hand a lot. But based on the feel, seams to need more.
Top loading ok?
Gentle or regular cycle? gentle is actually slower on my machine.
Warm Water ok?
spin dry ok?
couple of times? wow!
Thanks for your input.

I left mine outside basically in the shade for a day. But brought them in since then. Have an extra room, office/computer room. Sitting in the plastic tub I washed them in.

After rinsing with the Sterling rope wash they always feel a little slick, but it will be unnoticeable after it dries and a couple of pitches. Loop the rope over a clothesline outside in the shade, or inside over the shower rod (takes longer.)

We are in WV tonight; tomorrow I meet J-ung at his place for a few days and he is hooking me up with a whitewater run on the Lower New River. I don't think I will be able to climb here though, trying to save my climbing days away from the wife for out west in a week or so.

working on the business plan. any advice? yeah, I did business and strategic plans for Boston Children's Hospital for years, but this is different. Looking for some tricks to the plan that an artist would want to include or not include.

Had a productive day. Finished two paintings and made good progress on another. Will start another painting, I hope, tomorrow as well. it's a holiday here tomorrow, so I got all day.

Fingers are crossed the rain clears for good light to take good photos of the newest pieces of art.

Never had a business plan other than to price things so that the client gasps, swallows hard, and then says, "OK." I was more concerned with doing interesting work and keeping the integrity of the process; I kinda sucked at being overly profitable.

The business side bored me.

Have fun dude. It's been a wet spring and the water is up!

I'm rolling in Friday night and leaving sunday if you change your mind about the climbing.

Ma, you here lurking???
Quick question. How is the climbing and skiing in your neck of the woods? Close/far, lots/little, easy/hard?
The reason I ask. We are having issues at my work location. While I haven't been actively looking for new employeement, I have looked at the different things that do end up coming my way unsolicited. ie linkedin. Turns out there are some jobs in the Richland area.

Quick question. How is the climbing and skiing in your neck of the woods? Close/far, lots/little, easy/hard?
The reason I ask. We are having issues at my work location. While I haven't been actively looking for new employeement, I have looked at the different things that do end up coming my way unsolicited. ie linkedin. Turns out there are some jobs in the Richland area.

You going to hold out for the buyout or skip it and head off somewhere else before it happens?

prepped a couple of canvases for work later. kind of excited about two particular projects. added two new piece of art to the site, too. one turned out pretty nice in spite of my inability to take a good picture of it (it has straight lines and I need the camera angle to be perfect to preserve those lines in the photo - didn't happen) and the other is a little disappointing. I thought it would be better than it was, but it just doesn't feel right. I think I'm going to paint another version.

This one I discovered via therapy. Yeah, seriously. My therapist asked me to paint about my childhood, so this is the one I did for the first seven years. Yes, the lines are straight in the original.

Infância



And this one I'm waiting back from the owner of the flamenco school I go to for drawing to get some info from her before I officially name it. At the moment, it's simply named "Flamenco" but I think it will be "Sevillana" or "Sevillanos"

Sevillana



both are small (20 x 30 cm) and oil on canvas.

got my old mix of songs on, too. Turns out that live Van Halen album from 15 years ago or so is still pretty good.
