I extended the rafters out a foot. It still needs the end cap and additional bracing to stiffen it up.

Tomorrow's tasks include installing the cross strapping (a step I skipped the first time), then installing the new roof panels. I went with metal this time.

To fill the gap between the wall and roof, I have some lattice I removed from the deck at home so that will be repurposed to fill it in and still allow bbq smoke to escape the kitchen.

I started off this morning by finishing off the end of the roof. Then I installed the stringers.

All the roof panels are now installed. I also cut some extra braces for the corner posts. It's very solid.

Thanks. It works well for us. Good setup for a family of 8 to be able to enjoy camp.

You been camping there for a number of years, I'm sure there are bears around there, have you had any interaction or have they just stayed away?

We haven't had any issue with bears though I'm sure they are around.

The reason I asked is I have a lot of bear sign at my place on the mountain,tracks,scat and something moved some very large rocks and tried to get into my septic. I haven't seen anything while around there yet, but been cautious to cook outdoors. Also my cabin neighbor sent me a picture of one from his trail cam that looked to be about 300# that was taken in late winter/early spring.

We've never had a problem there. Not to say that it won't happen. We have more bear scat in the woods at home. But I haven't seen any signs in the yard.

Im thinking that seeing signs but not seeing the bears is a good thing, meaning they are not acclimated to people and are scared. In reading the ones that loose there fear due to someone feeding them or getting into garbage for a meal is the one to worry about. Also young male bears that are starving may become predatory. I carry bear spray and a .45 colt just in case and pray I never have to use either one.

You jinxed me. Lol. I'm at our annual fish camp out in the woods 3.5 hrs from home. We took a drive yesterday and spotted these two only 2 miles from camp.

With the whole covid lockdown I wasn't sure if we would be able to go to our annual fish camp this year. Crown land camping opened up Tuesday. Wednesday morning we headed out to geraldton and got set up in the same pit where I've been going since I was 2. Dad used to go with his dad when he was a teen and has been going ever since.

The fishing has been excellent. Every single cast brought in a fish. All perfect eating size. Must have thrown back about 30 fish last night. We've had 2 feeds so far. One pan fried. One deep fried. Nothing better than a fresh catch of walleye from the lake to the plate in 2 hours.

I took the two oldest boys out to camp this weekend. We finished off the roof on the kitchen so it now extends under the awning so in a rainstorm, we can get to the kitchen without getting wet.

On Saturday, we launched the boat and went for a cruise around the lake. I taught the oldest boy to drive the boat. It's now docked at my slip at camp for the summer. The boys went out kayaking with a few friends.

Another task we completed was installing a new quartz countertop I picked up for a deal last week. Much better than the folding plastic table we were using prior. Should be durable and weatherproof.

We're at camp for a week. It's a hot one today so we gathered up the 4 younger kids and headed to the beach for a couple hours. Now relaxing on the deck with a cold beer and music playing. Temperature is a balmy 32 celcius in the shade. Our youngest son (Andrew) wanted to learn to kayak so I taught him. He's doing great! Wants to go again some time.

I was home for a couple days now back at camp for a couple nights. Tis the life when you have a teenager without a full license who works.

Anyways, we wanted to close in the fenced area to provide more shade and privacy and also stop the dogs from barking.

After picking up the materials in town, I came out last night and got to work bright and early today.
