  1. Plans arrived!

    Exciting day Friday as the full package of plans and study plans showed up. I might have worried the UPS guy a little bit with my excitement as he kept walking faster down the driveway and looking over his shoulder....

    Went back up to the land on Sunday to see if we could get the kazillion ton wood chipper unstuck, but the rain just won't quit. Did get a chance to get the chips out of my trail cameras though. Looks like I better get my bow out!
