Only five more sleeps and I will be in the land of lakes and trees! Bill has been up there for a month, solo, cutting brush, planting trees, tending the garden and working his day job. He has just cleared a nice spot for our first structure. We’re going to start off with a platform to put our tent on, and once we have a road into the site, we will bring lumber in necessary to build a 16 x 20 sleeping shack. We can use this all year round if we build it large enough to incorporate a wood stove. And we have a lifetime supply of wood!
The house is almost packed up completely. My daughters were in today to lend a hand. It will be a change not having kids so close to us, but we’re not that far away. Only 7 hours…or one hour if they fly. I hope that they all gravitate to Saskatoon. It’s a nice town and on the verge of busting into a great city, just as Calgary did not so long ago. Now, with a million or so folks, Cow Town is just too big for us.
Tway is more our speed. Population estimated at 20.
