Been Campin'

...but not boatin'.  Where we were, although incredibly beautiful, is no place to take a boat.  You would simply not be able to launch it for one thing.  No, sometimes you have to take a break from boating and become one with a place called "Hell's half acre." ...which aught to be renamed "Heaven's Half Acre!"  It's located on the Stanislaus River near Sonora CA.

Back to laying down the planks. After you've done a bunch of them (such as I) it can get tedious but exciting (to me) probably not for you though.  I'm only mildly excited though, not really excited.  Anyway here's the progress picture.  See if you can spot the changes since the last progress picture!  Give yourself strokes for that!  I sure am giving myself strokes so you should have that oppurtunity as well!

Back from lake Tulloch

Here's what it looked like every morning until we figgered out they let out water every night (dropping the lake level 2 feet). The second picture was the last morning compensating for that fact.

A better look

A better look at the zebra wood, you can almost smell it! Just wait til it gets varnished, then the zebra quality will really come out!

Goin up to Lake Tullock (near Sonora) for the week end, gonna have a whole lotta fun. And fun is what it's all about isn't it?
