    Final round o' pics for the day:

    IMG_6272.JPG IMG_6273.JPG IMG_6278.JPG IMG_6279.JPG IMG_6280.JPG IMG_6281.JPG IMG_6282.JPG IMG_6283.JPG IMG_6286.JPG IMG_6287.JPG

    Those are just a few of the views I see as I look around my campsite... beats Compton, North Philly, or the Lower Bronx, I can tell y'all that much, LOL. There's the cider I had after my usual juice & tea, I did the juice first, waited awhile and had tea, waited again for awhile and cracked a cider... not a bad program on a beautiful day in the forest, especially when hearing tunes by a blazing campfire. Hey, MikeG, try some of that Ace Pineapple Craft Cider when ya gets the chance, that stuff is DEE-LICIOUS!!! The table shot shows the setup for the kittehs, with milk, wet food, dry food & water in the lineup... the loaded water pistol is for kittehs who get unruly or start whining, LOL. See that third Tiki Torch? I put that right by the trail that leads up from the bayside forest, so if I see a 10-foot 'Squatch heading my way with a bad attitude, I can grab the Bear Spray and roast the MFer's eyeballs with cayenne, 10-4??? Stand clear and wait for the BMFer to trip over something, then make like a Muslim tard, grab the machete and behead the monster at the first opportunity, yelling "ALLAH AKBAR!!!" for effect. ISLAM, THE RELIGION OF PEACE!!! Maybe I should buy a Husqvarna chainsaw to behead the thing, the machete might not do the trick, or I might aggravate my shoulder again, just when it's FINALLY backing off a bit... only took what, two months?!? PFFFFFFFFT.

    ALRIGHT, BOYZ, THAT'S IT FOR NOW, I'M BACK TO THE GLAMPSITE TO SHARE QUALITY TIME WITH THE KITTEHS, WOOHOO!!!

    I haven't seen that around me, of course I never looked for it either. LOL! I'll definitely be on the look out for it.

    Got gophers??? LOL. That little beach trail is cool, I need to finish hiking it and see whether there's actually a beach at the end or just a bluff.

    Guess that tree lost its footing on the edge of the bluff and toppled into the water.

    Final round o' pics:

    Weather is so beautiful right now, I'll never get tired of the light in this forest, including these sunset pics... place is paradise on earth. Hey, MikeG, I could be spending $85 per night to rent some fleabag motel room in Scaberdeen, that methhead $h!thole, but instead I'm paying 1/4 of that cost and glamping in paradise, LOL. Works for me!!! I just ordered the steel building which will be my new home, it's 30' x 50' x 10', which will give me and the kittehs roughly 1500 square feet, plus we're gonna build a big ol' wraparound deck for extra living space... not the kittehs, Doug is gonna help me build the deck, LOL. Heading back to the glampsite soon to crack a cold beer, already did my laundry and spoke to the realtor earlier, things are starting to get on track and I should be able to proceed with my crazy plan, 10-4??? It's taking a little longer than I wanted, but meh, I'm still livin' in paradise, AYE??? Could be worse, could be damp & cold, LOL. CHEERS!!!

    Man, oh man, this place just gets better & better, LOL... if the world comes to a f#%ng end today and I DIE in the forest, I'll die HAPPY, 10-4??? My THIRD cord o' firewood will be delivered this afternoon, that's three in what, 3 weeks??? LOL. Glamping in the PNW is ROUGH, I tell ya... a $h!tty job, but SOMEBODY has to do it, and it's my turn, WOOHOO!!! Check these shots:

    IMG_6585.JPG IMG_6586.JPG IMG_6587.JPG IMG_6588.JPG IMG_6589.JPG IMG_6590.JPG IMG_6591.JPG IMG_6592.JPG IMG_6593.JPG IMG_6594.JPG

    Those are my new bad boy wet weather boots, Vibram-soled & insulated beauties with neoprene ankles, slip-on models that are SUPER COMFORTABLE, they only set me back a C-note, LOL. Bought some socks and other stuff too, that tub looked like it will come in handy for holding the beer when we pour the slab and erect the steel building, LOL. Hey, check out the lineup of shoes in my tent, Imelda Marcos has NOTHIN' on me, LOL... well, maybe she has something, but it sure ain't being WHITE, AYE??? That last pic shows all the tags from the clothing and whatnot, I repurposed them as firestarters… we're like an Eskimo village in the field, NOTHING IS WASTED (except me, of course, LOL).

    Cool swag for the coming winter, aye? I think Crackhead is going through another growth spurt, he's looking pretty rangy after all the forest exploration, LOL. That and running from the big bad eagle whenever that thing shows up, 10???

    That last ship pic is why ya never let MikeG DOCK the boat, LOL. 4th pic shows me reading the book in a patch of sunshine, that book is very entertaining, I was laughing out loud at some of the shipwrecks. And NO, I don't have a fixation with edged weapons or tools, they just come in handy in the field, LOL.
