Coming along nicely. Got some dead trees cut down so things don't come unexpectedly from above. Felled a couple of oaks to turn into the stands for the houseboat and put them in the ground. Solid as a rock and ready to have to boat put on top. Some brush cutting and set up the camper for now. Heading back down to the big pond to work and earn some money. Then head back up the end of next week and carry on with the homestead shenanigans. I need a little tractor and a big thank you to Loyd who came by today to lend a hand.

Thank you for the offer. A buddy of mine likes to hunt around on craigslist and places like it. Thats how I got that flatbed trailer picked that up in Georgia for little money and its in good shape. . I am trying to get him to find someone that has a surplus small tractor and needs a motorbike. He loves that sort of stuff.

I'll probably get back up here on Thursday in a week. When I get back from getting that boat from lake okeechobee to Hilton Head. Then I'll bring up the workshop trailer on that run.

Sharps Chapel in Union county.

Had a good rain storm last night So I guess with that downpour, those pile I put in are now set good and proper. Today is mostly clearing tools away, Load the truck and tomorrow first thing I am heading back to the beach to work for other people. Then come back here the weekend after next with the mobile workshop getting that set up. The big move is going to be on the 18th when the boat is getting hauled out for her last time and getting trucked up to the spot on the hill.

Well now we know why the thing that is driving it is called an infernal combustion engine. I sent my missus back to the boat before I started messing with that thing. In cases like thins I can do all the chuckling by my lonesome thank you very much

I just did the 7 hour drive back to the beach. Fix a sail boat and get a cruiser Yacht from FL to here, then load up and head back up there for a few days. Do a couple of needed repairs on the camper trailer and slab up one oak tree to build steps out of for the boat once it is on its spot. And I have to find and cut a bunch of fire wood for the stove on board. Is it still called on board once the houseboat sits on land ?? On the way down I went past a friends place and picked up some stuff he had no need for like a couple of shovels and 2 axe heads a pitch fork and now that I am done with the holes , a manual post hole digger and a couple of saw horses.
