Thanks fellers, I tried to go up yesterday but there's still some heavy drifts. I didn't get a picture of the road that gives the scale but this scenery shot may give an idea. I got to about three mile from it then turned back. Did see some of my favorite neighbors down the trail though.

Made it to the cabin today. Drifts were deep and wet so the wench got a real work out. We took what I'm calling the new kitchen and screwed it to the wall. In a week or so I'll take the bunk beds up.

Yep, I know how to train them and pace the work. Setting the clock took me to the edge of my high tec knowledge.

The calendar says this is the beginning of summer so I talked a buddy into going to the cabin to relax and maybe do some shooting. We had a fine time and I even cooked him breakfast. Summer is a bit different up there. I loved it.

Keep living the dream Kent.  You have a wonderful hideaway there. Don't be shy to post any pictures of future trips.

The current heat wave keeps me in the basement, but maybe a photo of an old cabin that gave me some understanding of how to do the roof would be of interest. This abandoned cabin is at least 100 years old on a ranch near by. Of the ones I looked at while trying to figure out how to make mine this was what I chose.

Summer is about over, 5 degrees and snowing. The wood stove makes it hard to keep the cabin under 80 degrees so I have both windows open a bit. Was hoping to get a grouse but they are smarter then me today. Did shoot a pack rat that?s been making a mess under the lodge.

That's the stuff Kent. Do you have video content to share? I'd love to see a virtual walk through and around the cabin perimeter in the snow. In southern Arizona, we have to go up on the Mogollon Rim to see the stuff. Definitely is soul feeding to see you enjoying this so much.

Dave, a video up load may be beyond my meager skills. But a moose walked by the porch yesterday afternoon.

Thanks

My Good Kent -

love the photos!!! thanks so much for posting them.
they remind me of how the Colorado Rockies (unlike the New Mexico ranges) get socked in quite early LOL.

Just an FYI, if you plan to use your splitter:



A buddy is taking blacksmithing lessons and made a hook and nail for me, I hung the go devil on the porch with them.

May I suggest that you dress down the peened & flaired bits?
If actually used it will only be a matter of time before they split off and possibly cause owies...
as a former amatuer blacksmith I found out the hard way ....

You?re both right, and besides I don?t want to have OSHA notice that and the loaded guns and the whiskey 🥃!
I was thinking that this internet has allowed me to make contact with some interesting people yet not actually meet them. The pros and cons of modern times.

Kent:
I agree with you whole heartedly.  I will send you a PM the next time we visit family in Boulder or Laramie, maybe we can have a cup of coffee and visit.
