Maybe you should pick up your awesome little cabin and plant it on my lot to the west of you. Great neighbors, ponds behind you. I just got an offer with the park service in Alaska. Trying to decide if I should bug out to the north.

Hey Badge, I thought you were already up there.

As for planting shacks, I may do just that.
Considering buying patches of land in the area, and building whimsical little weekend abodes, then Craig's listing 'em.

Maybe we can swing some deals....a sorta partnership thing (those always work out.....NOT)

Anyway, keep us posted on yer exploits.

I live and work in Oregon. Got the place in Alaska for vacations and the future. But just got a full time job offer up there. So, might not need my place down by you anymore. The place w the brown trout in the ponds.

Ah

Nice

I'd take it in a heart beat

What will you be asking for your place in Oregon?

Not sure/negotiable, how do we email? If nothing else, good to have a contact close to the place.

Looks like we'll be moving to the cabin by late April....or sooner

Just had to chop out the ice away from the gate, and we were in

Heh, that....was a job
About three inches of glacier ice clinging to terra firma
Short work for the mattock
Coulda been shorter......I'm pooped

Man, I'm waaay outa shape
Town living was decadent

Brought a few things back up to the cabin today

Warm enough to prime the pump in the wellhouse


Took awhile

while I wait, I always wonder if it's gonna happen

Took three attempts to get a prime

I always get happy when I hear the gurgle and the water bursts thru and flows

So much to do up here

So little to do in town

Guess I had to do a year in town to realize some things

I could sell this water.....and air


Tightened up the interior of the A frame
Guess my lady doesn't care much for my furry friends getting in and having their way with her kitchen

The shop is a mess
Felt sorta good to happily angrily giddily toss stuff around in disgust, while looking for things

Took several pulls to start the gennys
The big one (8750 watt) was not meant for pull starting
Needed a mule and an ape to pull that crank
Happily I have enough of both left in me to get it goin'
After running a half hour, the battery charged back up
Push button start is rather nice

Next load or two will be just for the shop
Drives me nuts to see it in such poor order
Gonna take a full day or two to set it up the way I like it

Then.....the big (final) move, weather permitting

Next week is gonna big a big one

Forgot what tired was like

Sleep will come easy


Oh, and after finding out we were moving back, my bud in Wyoming sent me his next issue of Cabin Monthly;

Ok, the $8.45 Cdn is a little steep on the exchange rate, but I would have to agree, "Now is the time to retrieve that lost wallet".

Good humour your friend has there Gary. Hope the move back to the cottage goes well and welcome home.

Thanks, Fish

It'll be good to be nestled back into our abode.

My bud used to be a rival on a now defunct humor forum.
Lotsa playful competition
Now, we're best friends

Life.....is funny that way

Hi Gary,
Nice to hear you are moving back if that's where the heart is calling.. Is this a full time thing or just for the spring, summer and Fall?

No worries about touching anything in those mountains.....yet
