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.

I was back at the old mine site this morning. It's about 30 miles by trail and old logging roads to get there.

We had to cross a creek on the way.

Lmao. There's plenty out there. I went out to the back of my property the other day with one of the quads and came across 4 of them. Hunting is getting better as the leaves are falling and they don't have anywhere to hide. We probably saw 15 yesterday.

Time to close down camp for another season. We had lots of fun and laughs.

I talk to myself to get an expert opinion.

Friends of ours had to get work done on their camper over the winter so this morning a buddy and I tackled hauling it to town.

We had to cut a portion of their deck off to get it out then discovered 2 flat tires on the trailer. The other 2 only had 12 lbs of air. We managed to air up 3 of them but had to swap out the spare. All this in the pouring rain at only +4 celcius. We got er done though and hauled it to the rv repair shop.

I talk to myself to get an expert opinion.

Kind of a lonely feeling when you close up shop, even if its only until spring.

I know. I had planned on keeping it going another couple weeks but the forecast wasn't looking good. Oh well. Finish up hunting season then wait for snow to get through the winter snowmobiling.
