I’m reminded of something the Winker said…

when I was trying to add another two pounds of ground coffee to a 3# can that already held 1+. He said,

What you need is some vibratory compaction,

revealing another of the myriad hidden facets of his knowledge. He proceeded to lift-and-drop the can, up about an inch off the countertop, and then down! with a sharp impact. The granules shifted with each strike, scrambled loose by the shock — but drawn downward, relentlessly, by Terran gravity. Their rough edges collided, slid, and skipped, and the mass settled just a bit with every hit.

After a dozen repetitions, the 3# can held 3+ pounds of grounds.

My current container is not so round nor regular as a can. It’s the frunk of the 996; and I need to get all of this into that confine:

  • FACTORY-INFLATABLE-SPARE
  • FACTORY-JACK+LUG-WRENCH
  • TIRE-PLUGS
  • AIR-COMPRESSOR
  • LUGNUTS
  • OIL-FILTER+WRENCH
  • NITRILE-GLOVES+HAND-CLEANER
  • TOOLS+FAB-SUPPLIES+FASTENERS
  • FLOOR-JACK
  • JACKSTAND
  • TORQUE-WRENCH
  • IMPACT-GUN+CHARGER
  • QUART-OF-0w40
  • SPARE-798A+798A-MOUNT
  • ELECTRICAL-KIT+DURAMETRIC
  • TARP
  • GLASS-CLEANER+PAPER-TOWELS
  • STICKERS+MAGNETS
  • CG-LOCKS
  • HELMET
  • TOW-STRAP+SHACKLE
  • WARNING-TRIANGLES

After less than a dozen repetitions of unpack-repack, the hood does¬†close. It’ll be interesting to see how things have settled when we meet the car in Boston in three weeks.
