Productive Day Today
November 13, 2016 4:04pm CST
Not done yet either. Still have some serious writing/website work to do. Still early enough for that. Will need to recharge this tablet in between though. Brush piles from the spring all went up in smoke today. Fire season is over and there is no burn ban to make me pause. It really made me feel like I got some real work done for a change. Rounded up all the firewood I cut with the chainsaw earlier in the week. I have a ton more work to do in that department yet. None of us like being cold. Returned with my youngest son to a surprise discovery today on a promise. I found an old hunt camp/cottage in the bush that everyone seems to have forgotten. Looks like it collapsed about thirty years ago or more. There is a few items we can salvage from it. Mostly materials. Most of the structure is completely rotted smashed or rusted out. Might ferret out a bit of history from the locals. Tired and a bit sore but feeling good. Need to charge this thing do some writing and then I'll be back to hobknob before bed.

@koopharper Switzerland has forbidden to burn anything outside for the pollution. It is true that the population here in Europe has a lot less open spaces than Canada and the United States. Even the country houses are pretty near to the cities.

Shipping cost might be an issue but I'd be happy to dispose of them. Town council doesn't do much to make me happy. I pay them taxes so they can make rules for me. They do absolutely nothing else for me. On the brightside we generally get forgotten out here and don't have to pay much attention to them most of the time.

It is always a nice feeling to be pleasantly tired after a productive day. We need to get in wood for next winter but Vince has a bad shoulder at the moment. Our long winter just gone meant we used a lot more wood than we bargained on.
