Before leaving Seattle I purchased bug nets for the side and back doors on the Westy. With summer coming, I needed to install them before it was too late. The bug nets are made to fit Vanagon doors and come with snaps sewn into the netting, so all I needed to do was purchase some self-tapping sheet metal screws and drill them in. One problem: I have no power drill.
Enter one more reason why I love tool lending libraries. I used the NE Seattle Tool Lending library time and time again during our years in Seattle and, Missoula being the hip town that it is, I hoped for one here. Enter the Missoula Tool Lending Library to save the day. Part of the Missoula Urban Demonstration Project, they helpfully loaned me a cordless power drill with a smile while I installed the nets in their parking lot. They kick ass.
