Boco I am at 1400 feet elevation. I think that Noah dude went up higher than that but he had help apparently and a high tide to get there. I had to truck mine up to that spot. But for all I care, let the ice caps melt. Lighting the stove now to help that process along and have the fishing gear on board.

Tomorrow Iíll build a lean too with some small firs and a couple of tarps and then comes the fire wood cutting and chopping to fill it with wood to keep the tree lace warm
Enough dead standing oak etc to cut down and chop up
Sharpened saw chains and axes today
So the next few days there wonít be any pics of this boring stuff

Curious if you plan to pour footings under her and then block walls and drop her on? Oak is good for a while but not permanent.

They are 20 inch stumps that she is sitting on now. When they start to rot, I'll replace them or my grandson will be old enough by then to run a saw and can do it

The view from the boat has changed somewhat from what it was like in the past

I like that view better, looking good!


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

I wonder how much wood you'll burn this winter, that's my question....pulpwood cords.

Looking good !

East Tennessee offers some beautiful scenery. The TFHA is a first rate trapping organization that you may be interested in joining. If they are still having their annual convention at Falls Creek Falls you're bound to have a good time.

Enjoy your new adventure.


Common sense is.the best friend I've ever had.

Another life goal reached in success, Michael ! Maintaining Tess will be easy .

I really like that stainless pipe and the wood stove .

A turn key living place while you move onto other building goals. Perfect.

Thank you for the kind words Sharon.

No idea but I am planning to chop 10 oak rounds every day and stack them. Right now I burn about 3 per day. So that should create some sort of buffer over time. I don't know what a cord or face cord etc. is but I do know that I need enough to keep us warm. I have enough dead standing oak and some other hard wood here. So I don't have to worry about not having time to season the fire wood.

Thanks for the heads up about the trapping association.

I finished wiring up my disconnect on the pole where they hung the transformer on Thursday Finished leveling the workshop trailer and pulled a dead oak to the fire wood chopping place and popped the radiator on the tractor. Off to Knoxville tomorrow to take this laptop to a Apple shop to have the batteries replaced. They have to send it in to get it done though and that may take a few days. So y'all are not going to read much of my BS till I get the thing back as I am not much of a phone typer. With any luck I can braze the radiator. If not I have to try and get a replacement from somewhere. Wish me luck as without the tractor the fire wood thing is going to get tough to do. So with a bit of luck we should have electrickery coming out of a pole in a couple of days and can turn off the generator for some quiet times. I am sooooo looking forward to that. No background noise all day long for the first time in years. Then on to the next challenge.

Scuba, do you have ash on your property? That's good firewood.

Yes I do but they are still alive. So at the moment I am cutting down the dead standing oak and Hickory trees I can get to as i can burn them as they are now. But I will cut some ash for the future. Lay them down this winter while the sap is down and cut them up when I have a bit of time.

If your Ash are still alive, I imagine it won't be long until they are good dead standing timber.

Most of my ash are already dead. Probably all of them.

I'll have to have a look at the other side of the property but that part is not as easy to get to and i would have to wait for when I have a 4 wheeler to log them and pull them down the slope to the track where I can get them with the Massey
