Lmao. There won't be a gazebo. In place of the tarp garage, we're planning an additional storage shed for the tubes, air compressor, gas cans etc.

Yesterday at camp was all hunting. I went out alone with the side by side for a few hours. Half the time was spent doing chainsaw work opening up a couple of bird roads that were grown in and had deadfall.

I got back to camp at noon then turned around and headed back out with a buddy. We were going down an old logging road about 20 miles from camp when we spotted a narrow trail cut out through the bush and decided to follow it.

It was barely wide enough for the machine but we made it through about a mile where it came to a small lake where there were 5 boats that had been there for years.

We continued on our way back out to the road and back to the main logging road which was being used by logging trucks hauling wood out.

A few miles down, we came across another side road that was well maintained and used. After following it for about 10 miles, it came to a fast moving river where there was a water crossing in about 2 feet of fast water with rocks on the bottom. Of course we crossed it as the road continued on though it was much more grown in but passable. Another 10 miles down the trail we joined up with another old logging road that was more maintained. We went left to see where it went. After driving another 10 or so miles, it came to an old abandoned gold mine where there was a dilapidated old building that looked to be a storage garage for the core samples. There were about 200 empty pails littering the ground along with stacks of old core samples.

A bit further down the road was an old trappers cabin that appeared to have been abandoned in the 90s. It was still fully stocked with furniture and bedding but appeared to have been trashed by a bear at some point. I didn't get a picture of it.

The leaves are turning color making it quite enjoyable to be out in the woods.
