  1. Some Photographs From Out At The Cabin;

    It took until March 18th at 2:30 AM before I saw a display of the Aurora but I was dressed and outside by 3:00 and then took the snowmachine out to the back field to get some shots.

  2. It Wasn't All Northern Lights;

    In early January Nancy got herself a new Ski Doo Skandic Super Widetrack snowmachine. After riding it out she took my Tundra LT back when she went home and left me this to test out.


    I was amazed at how these things will crawl through the thick woods over 4 - 5 feet of powder snow. They have a 156" long by 24" wide track under them that is like a giant snowshoe. The skies are 10.5" ...

  5. Winters Work part 2;

    With the difficulties of my arrival behind me it then became clear that the insulation under the cabin floor has needed work for years. I spent 2 days remedying this during which time the temps never passed negative readings. Finding the offending areas was tough because the insulation had been installed by someone other than myself................ The bottom of the floor joists were covered by heavy plastic stapled in place and then a sort of wire mesh also stapled up to hold the rolled fiberglass ...
