    The edge of the boreal forest is less than 100 miles away but we're lucky enough to be in good soil. You'd think I could spot a Combine in the last week but I guess most areas aren't dry or ripe enough yet. They're cutting it close with the forecast we have rolling in. Looks like a good weekend for camping!

    From Bartley to Beerly to big bales on the bay, this 15 acres is in the wrap. 75 reasonable bundles of camo crop weighing in around 1400 lbs. each. Since it's in the wrap we can talk,.....for an oops crop, it's a nice crop.

    The garden vegetables weren't much to speak of. Too cold too long, too wet too long so the Tom Green look alike got on his tiller and got it ready for next year. Yes sir, garden season is over and quick pickins' meant it was time to play. Goose helped out again and had 2 new drivers take the wheel.

    Merle sir I sure wish we made it to California. We missed half a year of earning potential with rain so I should have booked out of here June 16 and taken those 53 days of rain on the coast. If it's going to be raining, it sure would be nice to have an ocean near by. We've kept it quiet but the last 19 days here have been spectacular.

    Even the critters were having a good month with the gate guard blending in better every day.
    Can you see him?

    Get the gutters cleaned, the drainage checked, pull the freezable stuff out of the trucks, Check the anti-freeze, get the winter rubber ready, cut more firewood....much more firewood.

    Okay, so please tell me, plowboy, Where's Waldo?!

    Are you talking about the cottontail (or is that a hare), hanging out by the gatepost?

    I'm not thinking a hare would hold still that long.

    Default Scariest bird in Canada

    Gate Grouse guarding the grounds. Their tactic is frightening. They sit in one spot until you're on top of them. If a person's awareness isn't up, it can cause quite a fright. This is the scariest bird in Canada.

    Pheasant must be their cousins.

    Flushing one of them (in a non-hunting situation), will similarly scare the living daylights out of any unsuspecting body (almost put me into the old "fibrillation" one time).

    It's a good tactic!

    Default Future MV Owners, travelling to the future

    Once again, the G749 farm hosted a group of cadets and a pile of green volunteers.

    "Let's go camping", they said.

    "It'll be fun for the kids", they said....... Is that snow?

    P9270509.jpg

    Fun for the kids because they get the heater and many of the officers don't. Temps dipped well below freezing so it wasn't an easy night for a bunch of tough "Ladies".......that's right I said ladies. With ages hitting into the ....almost retired age.... the Captain and many of the volunteers are female. I think the kids come out just to see the look on the Officer's faces when they crawl out of the sac in the morning.

    P9270497.jpg

    They come prepared with trailers and vans full of everything needed to make the kids comfortable, including a nurse.

    Goose the deuce did more than just look good in front of the brass,

    P9280526.jpg P9280517.jpg

    ....she carried troops again.

    The opportunity exists to make more alliances with people that want access to these historical military vehicles. It just seems like the right time to organize and make historical MV's so important folks will rebel without them! We have 60 more kids hooked on the M135.
