Well we did it.
And a good time was had.
We drank. Ate crap. Cut wood. Froze to death at night.
We toured around the mountains and saw this…
I mean seriously. Who does this shit?
The mountain is raped and screaming.
There is at least 80% waste here. At least.
That means they are cutting down every single tree there is and taking about…..ya hardly anything out.
It’s brutal. Infuriating.
How this is still happening is beyond fathoming. But. Right here before our eyes…on the most beautiful island around…is the proof.
At least we are making good use of some of it. Easy pickings for our campfire pile.
And then when you drive past it. And head back to camp, you get this…
And this is right in front of the camping spot.
Amazing? I think so. With no phones. No noise.
Well other than the echo’s of the excavator. And the monkey screaming.
The monkey started out the trip as a pocket monkey with Bruce into Walmart. Well almost into Walmart. Bruce swears he remembered he was in his pocket before he went in the store. But there is absolutely no proof of that.
So the monkey ended up in the truck with us camping.
He was having an awesome time at first, him and the flashlight…dont ask. There are pictures, but they are bad monkey porn. So I withhold.
And then it was the fight between the dogs for the monkey. Both Lex and Bailey got a turn. The next thing we knew the poor monkey was treed. We are pretty sure he was faking.
And that he was drinking our booze.
We also toured around and found the biggest and most amazing Aqua duct. I have pics. But they are on my camera. I am blogging this from my phone, so I will post the pics later in the week. It runs for miles. All hand built and truly amazing. At the end of it all it goes to a generating station from miles up the hill. Very cool and a wee bit mind blowing.
How the hell they pulled it off fifty years ago or so…boggling.
Who knew you could learn so much when you were half drunk and camping huh?
I swear I could have used a couple days more. Camping to recover from the camping.
It’s coming. We are definitely going again soon…
Even the tent part was awesome. Well except for the flat air mattress in the morning of the last day. We should probably get a new one.
Hard ground under your ass sucks. And not in a fun way.
I got a picture of Bruce and I together too…unfortunately, he is an ass. So the pic sucks. And its on my camera. I am going to post that later too, mostly because he told me not too. Maybe he will behave and take a nice picture next time huh?
I love him anyway.
Have a wonderful week friends…keep smiling!!!
