The Internet Service is back! Woo hoo! Hmm... Now what to do? What to do? Shall I start by catching up on work? Or shall I start by blogging about what we did during the two days with no power (though we have a kick-ass generator) and no Internet? Silly question!
During an emergency, a Siberian always knows how to quickly utilize "all" food sources.
"Blue tape! A rare delicacy!"
"Hey, who turned out the lights?"
"Oops, guess that would be me."
"Tastes like chicken!'
Yesterday, we checked out NitWit Bridge and Trail.
Remember the rope hand rails that Mr. Wild Dingo made for descending steep terrain? Remember how much slack he left in the rope? I thought it seemed silly that he left so much slack, until I saw this:
The ropes were tight as guitar strings. They shrunk heavily in the rains. The "before" photos did not even show the true amount of slack he left, as he had gone back and made more slack so they dipped very low. Mr. Wild Dingo's a "thinker." He knew that rain would make them shrink!
And NitWit Creek is flowing at class 2 rapids. Hopefully we'll see more this winter and we'll see at least class 3 or 4 by end of the winter so our well will be full year round.
I can never understand why nobody ever wants to hike NitWit Bridge with me.
