Camp is starting to seem like a make work project. Always something to do. Few weeks ago we started talking about building a fence to discourage the dogs from barking and give a little privacy. So I had never built a fence before but took some measurements last week while my wife dug holes for posts. This morning I put Evan to work with me. And 3 hours later we had a fence built. No plans. Just winged it. I had calculated 60 fence boards and was bang on. The only leftover wood was in the last picture. I still want to install solar lights on the posts.

As a bit of a reward for his hard work, I took Evan out for a good long ride in the side by side. Since he's 14 and will be learning how to drive in a couple years, I let him have a turn at the wheel. He rode around a pit first then drove the 10 miles back to camp. The side by side has signal lights. High low beam. Horn. Everything a car has. So I taught him how to signal, do mirror checks. Look both ways etc before pulling out

Lmao. It already went in the fire pit. Once the shed is built and the old one tore down, we'll be pretty much done aside from the small stuff. Time to crawl into a beer or three.

Thanks. I serves the purpose. It was windy earlier and the fence provided great shelter. We were able to have a fire for the kids and cook hot dogs and smokies on the fire despite strong winds.
