Zucchini Boat

Thursday, September 30th, 2010


My coworker’s neighbor grew this giant zucchinizilla in their garden and then gave it to my coworker who gave it to me. Then I got 2 more giant (but not as huge) zucchinis and I thought, “That’s a lot of shreds. A lot.” So we devised an alternate plan for the zucchini that ate Milwaukee.

There and Back Again: Hell-Riding Oop Nord pt. 2

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010


Here’s camp standing lake side and shooting back into the forested area. The SOWnah is to the left of the picture. By the way, camp has a new roof and a new paint job too…I can’t even imagine how the work crews got out there because camp road makes two tracks look like paved highway. During the spring you have to share the road with a river which empties out into Lake Superior somewheres and if it’s not rock, it’s muck you are traveling on. Apparently, the roofer’s trucks did quite a number on the lawn, such as it is out at camp.

Kittens!!

Sunday, September 5th, 2010


Things and stuff ironed themselves out and we were able to make a run Oop Nord this weekend. Of course we have to be back to work on Monday and we didn’t get rolling until after noon on Saturday so this was more of a hell ride than a visit. On the other hand, we got to see the Qs and meet the kitties in person. Oh yes, I have kitteh pictures. I also have pictures of general up north things but I think kittens trump general up north things.
