9volt batteries

Bring more 9v batteries

Bring cold cereal

We are  down to the last bits of granola.  Whoever comes next, bring cold cereal.  There is lots of oatmeal but that is about all.

Not much action

Only someone taking a picture of the camera and Willy checking out the area.

Our new trail camera

Today we will see if there were any overnight visitors

Another spring day

Another beautiful spring day here that feels almost like summer. There is a new(er) computer and a wild life camera here now. We will see what we get photos of besides willy and I testing it. To remember. The outlets in the east bedroom did not work. It turns out the breaker was tripped. It is one very near the bottom of the long panel. So look all the way down. The breaker shows red when tripped. A good clue if someone looks for it. Now we get light to read by and a blanket warmed bed

Attempted Nest

This attempted nest was not by a hummingbird.  Fortunately for us (not the critter), the nest attempt failed. 

Very early summer

May 2, and I drove clear to the cabin on an almost dusty road. No snow at all except one tiny patch, probably gone today, near the meadow.  It is where we got the snow to chill the beer for the big wedding 2 years ago.  All is well here.  I brought birdseed and will fill one of the feeders to see if anyone comes to get it.

No sign of critters in the cabin but someone large tried to build a nest in the eaves behind the fireplace.  Remnants of it (big sticks and lost of poop) on the porch.  If I can figure out how, I'll post a photo from my iPad.

Dinkey is low for this time of year. Lets hope it keeps running all summer.

I'm staying another night. Food willbe an adventure. Since I wasn't sure about staying and thought I'd have to walk in, I didn't bring much with me. There is plenty of bread and bacon in the freezer and stuff in the pantry so I'll survive. I'm glad I brought a few oranges, which I am rationing, so I don't get scurvy
