Douglas and Norman at our Alaskan haven


We were out at the property the other day enjoying the sunshine, the peace and quiet out there, and letting the dogs have some fun exploring and running around. Our septic is in now and while we were out there, the guy came back to do some clearing across the road. Instead of clearing more land on our property for us to get the 40 foot 5th wheel in, we are going to back it in. We have to back it in, about 600 feet. Should be loads of fun. 

We don't want our clearing any bigger than it already is though, we want forest and not open space, so it will be worth the extra effort. As long as we get it in, in one piece. 

The boys had a blast. They love it out there. Douglas was anxious to see if he could find any new bones, and we found one, but I couldn't let him have it because it was too brittle and could break, so I just let him have a good sniff instead.

whoa! what is that... hmmm

maybe if I just taste it a little...

ewwwe... I don't know about this...

Time to go boys!

It's been warm here in the interior the past few days, about 75ish F... Today more like 85 F. Time to get out the sunscreen!

The dogs are looking good! Remember, I told you that you needed to drive that rig. Anybody can drive it forward and I know you like a challenge, so I vote for you backing it in. ;0)
