Wow, I am exhausted.

However, we now have one gate that goes "beep beep" and opens by itself. I still have two more "doorbell pushes" to wire up on either side of the gate so you don't need to be carrying a remote control around. Then I can fill in the last of the trenches, staple wire and pvc conduit "weed-whacker" guards into position, and voila, the first of three gates is up. We actually only _ need _ two, as the third one encloses a pasture which hasn't been fenced yet. Of course, I'm tempted to put it up anyway, as installing an automatic gate that secures absolutely nothing amuses me in a "Bridge to Nowhere" sort of way.

However, at the pace I've been maintaining, even with "learning," I'll be extremely lucky to get the 2nd gate operating tomorrrow.

I'm all for teaching DUH
in America's schools!
