Winter Projects.

While getting wood at Craig’s house I found an awesome junk pile. Old rusty gems.

I did find a couple of old rusty pieces I will hope to use out at the property. Including this tank:

I have some good ideas, and you’ll just have to stay tuned to see what I use it for.

I also found some Auger looking things, that I hope to use as some type of entrance artwork.

Wood Gettin’

Since Britt and I moved to Genesee, our apartment has a wood stove and baseboard heaters… Well, last year we used the baseboard heaters for a month (cuz we moved in, in january… and didn’t have any wood) well, we paid out our noses to keep our house warm!

So Britt and I decided we would do straight up wood this winter. I spent my last rotation off finding the darn stuff!

Luckily, Britt’s (soon to be mine too!) bro-in-law needed some dead trees cut down at his property, so we got some there. Then that following monday My grandpa and I went up Meadow Creek to try and find some. But we came up empty! Although we did run into some snow.

excuse my blury photos, I took most while I was driving… (Bad I know…)

But as for now, I probably have about a cord or so. so it should last us a month or two.

Hideout Visit.

I took a trip up Meadow creek to the hideout. It simply amazes me how much those cows screw things up. Don’t get me wrong, I understand how vital they are to our campsites existence, but at the same time. Jesus…they screw everything up! They kick all my fire pit rocks around, tip over my table, crap all over the place, and are just a general nuisance.

But I was hiking around looking for some fallen trees (Next Year’s firewood) and I stumbled upon this!

I threw a chunk of wood into the creek, looked up and there it was!!! I almost hit it with the wood, and would of been in a world of hurt if I had.

Crazy right? That thing is easily the size of a volleyball. And it’s maybe 25-30 yards from camp. We’ll have to take care of that this winter when the Bees aren’t buzzing in and out of their hive.

In other Hideout related news. Britt and I are trying to find a bus, old camper, or something (As cheap as possible) to use as a makeshift shelter next summer, so we can just say, “Let’s go stay at the hideout” and not have to pack 10,000 things.

I’m currently running down leads for old school busses and what not. I really would like to find one, take all the seats out, and make a camper out of it. But, we’ll see if I can find one at a low cost.

Until next time.

Eagles Fall to instate Rival (3-2)

I’ll be honest, I didn’t get to listen/watch/follow the game at all. I was spending my weekend in Yakima, at the 10th Annual Fresh Hop Ale Festival. However, I did get a few updates while on the road. It sounds as if it was a game that was lost by Michael Vick. His turnover issues is becoming a theme this year. And the more it happens the more I think Andy Reid’s Future with the Eagles is becoming more bleak by the week.

The Steelers ended up winning by kicking a field goal as time expired.

Steelers 16 Eagles 14

Next week the Eagles face Detroit, who is coming off a bye. Assuming Vick can keep the ball away from the opponent, it should be an interesting game to watch, as both have very explosive offenses.
