work pics plus conditions update
Spent a few hours working on the land today (and a little while searching for trespassers that may or may not have existed). Not quite as wet as I expected but it still qualifies as hella wet! Black flies are down from biblical plague level to just monster swarm level! Mosquito head net over safari hat was the ticket to deal with them (since I don't have access to napalm). Got the logs for the bridges winched mostly into place. Hard to maneuver because it's so greasy, had to winch myself out one time (see photo), damn near a couple times more. Here are a few shots of the operation plus bonus duck shots.

Thanks! If the weather cooperates I'm going to do a work and wheel next weekend if you feel like swinging up. I should have the bridges in place and ready to deck by then and there is some cutting and clearing to do. Going to work on winching down some widow makers during the week.

Thanks. I'm always extra careful when cutting/winching alone.

Thanks Rafael! Definitely work on the rig, hope to see you out with it soon. If I get 4-5 people we should be good. I just want to do some deadfall clearing and cut the last section of the rock trail. Hopefully the weather cooperates.

Cool, hope it goes smoothly. I'll put the official work and wheel post up later today (Wednesday). PM me if you need directions.

Snuck in an hour and a half Tuesday evening. Beautiful weather, bugs starting to ease back. Could have used another hour of daylight.
