Default Getting Ready To Go Again;

Finally the weather has turned a bit. Today it's a comfortable 7* here at the house at 12:03 PM. We had an overnight of -7 and I'm off to do some lumber shopping. I will be on and off the computer for the next few days while I get the trailer filled with building materials and then deliver it to the freighter. We are going to have our own custom freight sled made this fall but until then we are hiring the loads out. With the new Skandic Super Wide sitting in the driveway it seems ironic to have to hire someone to pull the load but that's the way it is for now.

A good sled has to be well thought out with a long enough ski base to span and thus minimize the bumps encountered on the long trip to the cabin. I'm not sure what one will cost but a couple thousand seems like the range to me. The sled will be sturdy enough to haul a ton whether it's 55 gallon drums full of fuel or a load of plywood and assorted lumber for interior finish on the building.

Once I've got everything squared away we're going to put Boss on a mail plane to Skwentna and then I'll be gone until mid March or so.
