New tent

After nearly fifty years the old canvas tent finally ripped.  A lot of memories camping with my dad.  I got a new nylon tent.  Bet it won’t last fifty years.

Looking lived in

The Pithole Paradise is starting to look lived in.

And these are my new windows

Windows

Please ignore the photos of the windows below.  I have found some double pane, single hung new windows at 84 Lumber at a great price.  One 3 by 3, two 3 by 2’s and one 2 by 2 for $55, $47 and $38 respectively.  With the veterans discount I got them all, with screens, for under $200.  Similar single pane windows would have been over $300 elsewhere.  More pictures to come.  I plan on making a greenhouse/hotbed with the old windows.

Step by step

For those who don’t know what Pithole is I will be posting a history.  In the meantime I have obtained windows for my cabin.

A few days off

I was off a few days for a medical problem.  Will be back out at the land tomorrow.

Tenting

Hey you kids, get off my land!  Just kidding.  I’m an old hermit but not yet a grouchy old hermit.  But I am well armed and former military so it is best not to sneak up on me.

Day 2 – update

Contacted the generator manufacturer All Power America, and they are shipping the part. Plus, the company selling it is refunding $100. Will soon be up and running.
