Eric,
Thanks for the tour and showing us your driveway. They say good fences make for good neighbors but I believe a driveway like yours makes for great neighbors :D.
You have a real special place there and I hope to someday to have my own little place just a few miles past the end of the road. Loved seeing some of those big, tall, straight pines with 30 to 40 of trunk before you get to the lower branches. You have something special indeed.

Thanks :)  We love the place and those big straight pines are what I cut my teeth on (no pun intended LOL).

Thanks :)  It's been a great experience and I am always planning another trip :)  My sons have grown and left home but one is now a Lead Hand in a sawmill way up north (Chetwynd BC).  Guess the sawdust got in his blood ;)


This was last weekend :)  Lots more done and more to do but always keep the woodstove lit in the winter ;)

We've got property that looks very much like that and three miles of rough dirt/mud/snow road to get there, but no cabin yet. Plan to start construction in the spring. Sure is beautiful country!

The winds of change are blowing at hurricane force and I don't like it but good shall come even though I see not how.  I'll do everything in my power to see that it does.

Nice! Thanks for the tour, my wife suggested that maybe we could trade a few nights at each others cabins, its only a 53 hour drive. :o
