Think we need to get a fire started foreign wood your kind of meal yes ah look out for some dessert should we Chips Ahoy and hot chocolate yeah that was a good hard day so I'm.
Stealing him look up do you want your sleeping bag and pillow yeah yeah the police yeah I'm coming up look at this there's three mattresses here there's one for.
Each one of you boys Tommy's backpack got soaked through and so his clothes are a little damp we're gonna hang him up and dry him you didn't watch some shows on my phone yeah all right let's let's do that oh you want some popcorn we can do popcorn.
Thank you have a good day bud yep you're gonna be warm enough all right guys I'm gonna put the camera down I'm gonna go to bed I'm gonna see you guys in the morning we got a lot of work tomorrow it seems like it's raining a little less.
Hard today all right what's up no sit on your seat please there's your hot chocolate try using your fork if it's just just has a straw as soon as I get done with these dishes we're going outside.
I think it's time for us to get to work all right I think number one on my agenda is cleaning up we've got so much stuff just laying out here in the weather if it's garbage we gotta get rid of it if it's worth keeping we got to put it away in the shed we got a lot to do yeah.
Stop where are you take it up let's take it over to the burn barrel foreign you like it up there yes.
I keep finding these random piles of cordwood scattered across the property so I'm trying to consolidate them all underneath that little shed over there so when the snow falls we can find our firewood and get at it easily.
Wood that would free me up time you hungry yeah should we get lunch I'll hold it up okay yeah okay we're gonna get a first aid kit okay no we're in a hole still you know how you can tell whether you need stitches if you can see the fat when you look down in the cut Thomas I think you need stitches buddy.
No yeah it's gonna take us a while to get out of here so we need to kind of just leave everything and get out of here if we're gonna get your stitches you think I'm overreacting thank you took some driving but we found ourselves a town with a clinic you did good bud you did good.
Handiwork oh yeah you got a fuzzy finger now you are so brave too Vietnam is it starting to feel better though yeah it feels better it does not hurt at all nurses were so nice yeah the nurses were awesome eat here Tom sit down eat some food okay I spent about half my day getting to and.
From the clinic so I got a lot of work left to do yet there we go got the wood taken care of check it out this is all tongue and groove siding this goes together like that but it's just scrap pieces I don't know if it's enough to do the inside of the cabin or anything but some of it's starting to get weathered and.
Rotten yeah a big box of construction scraps some good firewood in there a massive pile of end pieces here well I got a garbage can full of these end pieces over by the wood pile but I'll never burn through all of this holy mackerel that's a lot gotta figure out.
What I'm gonna do with all these scraps well we've gotten a lot done so far but man there's so much left to do I'm gonna take a break and try to fiddle with this snow machine a little bit I'd really like to know whether or not we have a working snow machine disconnected.
Gonna wipe this spark plug on my shirt really well that that looks broken let's see if this other Arctic Cat has a good belt in it ah there we go that actually looks brand spanking new there we go.
If we can swap this out I'm like oh I got it on top no way I didn't think that was gonna happen well the reverse doesn't seem to be working so we're gonna have to do this the hard way thank you no machine.
oh those two strokes are so sticky well that'll be useful come winter time glad we got that running that is such a big deal you tired are you tired yeah well we need to get your energy up oh I like that oh yeah sir.
Oh that was definitely not healthy but man that was good dessert you want some black licorice no thank you sure you don't want the black hooker pretty sure it's the best flavor come on you got do you get enough to eat yeah you want to shoot on some fireworks yeah yeah.
Oh oh ah run run run run run run run that thing trying to kill us only one ER visit per day that's our rule run was that cool yeah I think it's bedtime.
Bud well believe it or not it's about 10 o'clock and it is late so we've got to get this boy to bed all right I'm gonna put the camera down I will see you guys in the morning yeah this has been so wet this summer turned everything into a mud hole we got a lot to do around here but.
Number one on my agenda is fixing this Trail the rain has made it into a muddy mess and every time we drive this side by side it just makes the ruts and mud holes deeper previously owner put a bunch of logs in here to keep it from becoming too deep oh it gets deep right here Tom that's a good idea.
But was it there is a load of dead timber in here I think we could build this Trail up pretty good but I didn't bring my chainsaw you know we didn't even check out this greenhouse it's a greenhouse but there's no door middle of the summer though so I think we're a little past the planting.
Season but not quite sure how they got in there me all in all I paid 77 000 for five acres of land this cabin and everything on it Tom you think that was a good deal good deal it was a really good deal well I've got a lot of plans for this property and a lot of projects in mind if you guys.
