March this year has been more about getting the cabin foundation fixed (you do remember my shock last August http://bjb.be5.myftpupload.com/index.php/archives/2607) after the big lean than anything else. I made two trips and almost have all of the cribs in and the beams straighten and braced, one more trip should do it and then I can get back to finishing up the insulation.
Of course there was a few hickups during March as well with Trish’s health. So far everything is looking better, but the poor thing has had one H E double L of a winter. We think we may have it all worked out and she should get back on schedule.

Last weekend was probable the most social weekend I’ve ever had at the cabin, a couple of the locals came to visit and I must of spent 4 hours visiting which I didn’t mind, but it did delay some of the work I wanted to get done. Jake and I completed 2 of the three beams and started on the third. Of course it didn’t help anything that I bent and broke and the propane line to the kitchen stove, so we got side tracked on fixing that so we could cook and make coffee, a priority you know.
We did get a nice ride in to the top of Chulitna Buttes, a hill I’ve been wanting to get to the top of for the past four years and the view was spectacular. No I didn’t get any pictures since we hadn’t planned to do any exploring, just stop by Steve and Kim’s and go back to the cabin, but then I got a wild hair and up the side of the mountain we went and as I said it was spectacular. I’m hoping to re-visit the Butte on my next trip and will definitely take my camera with me.Share on Facebook
