Britt and I went up to the Hideout to put the finishing touches on the camp (at least for this year) and boy was it hot.
The Friday that we left, Axel and I went up and mowed the grass, while Britt was working her tail off at HRC. Britt and I wanted to pack as little as possible, so we literally took no cooking items. no skillets, no BBQ, no spatulas, no nothing. We were gonna hot dog it, for our two dinners and made a breakfast bake for one morning (we just tossed it into the fire for a couple hours). Really it was a good thing too, because with our project (we’ll get there) we didn’t have a ton of room in the back of my pickup.
This trip was not a leisure trip however, (almost none have been this year!) we had to put these materials to good use.
so, we started digging
Then once we got the holes dug, we added the tubes, and prepped the concrete.
then we got the Posts set.as you can probably see, they’re hammock stands. We haven’t tested them out yet, the concrete wasn’t set yet, but I’m sure they’ll work just fine.
Anyhow, back to the camping, we had a good time. after we got those posts set, we decided to enjoy the sun for the rest of the day…and boy did we get burnt. Britt and I both had flip flops on, which we have tan lines from, which we call skin-flops. but here are some random pics from the remaining time.
We decided to cut it short by leaving late on saturday, but it turned out to be a good decision as it POURED down rain an hour after we left.
