OK Kevin, with the magic of server search/paste, a post of mine from 2 years ago at my Maple camp.....It has all the modern conveniences, even phone and internet access in the woods. I originally downloaded this pictures from the camp on the laptop seen on the table. Maybe thats why the hard drive wobbles? hehehe.

Tapping is real work,.... action shot. 99 to go. Where'* the beer?

There'* time to sleep when we're dead. LOL. Time management and a natural knack of living on 4-5 hours sleep routinely. Being retired @49 helps. I wasted alot of years sitting on bar stools, wasting away as time went by, and using enough drugs to kill an elephant. I finally woke up, re-framed my life, found a good woman, got comfortable with God and my existence and decided to get out and really live life. My internet time is mainly rainy/snowy/cold days and nights all year round. It'* amazing to me how much time we can burn up just vegging in our homes when there is such a large world outside. A world we only get one time around to experience.
