This is a story of a Restoration

I restored this boat from April 2006 to October 2008. You will need to go to the very bottom, October 2008, to find the biginning. See blog archive on the right side.

My January 2010 Trip

This is my trip to Arizona, Death Valley and California.

Us three. Ned, 85, Ron, 81, and Yours Truly, 73, the squirt.

These are pictures of Death Valley.

Rock wall with inlaid stones.

More inlaid stones.

Rock wall with little barrel cactus clinging to the side.

We encountered snow at 7000 feet on Hunter Mountain. We had to winch ourselves up the road for about 100 yards.

Tortured rock layers in Titus Canyon.

At Teakettle Junction, on the way to the RaceTrack.

Trails of moving rocks.

A rock that moved.

We had to leave early, because that winter storm that hit CA. was on the way. We then went to Angels Camp to visit Ron, and it rained for 4 days. He got 7 inches at his home. We then headed back to Bagdad, AZ, before my car got stranded on the wrong side of a mountain wash gully. After I left Ned's place, it rained 3 inches in the desert, and washed out his road. I stayed in Cedar City, UT, and woke up to 4 inches of snow. There was 4 inches of snow when I got home.
Until next years trip. But boat show will be coming this summer.

On Vacation

I left for southern climes on Monday, 11th. Got to Bagdad, AZ on Wed, 13th, with my oldest brother. Then we spent the next 4 days in Deathe Valley, now I am in Angels Camp, CA with my other brother. All three of us. The first time we have been together for about 4 years. I'll be home about Monday, 25th. Pictures to follow.

My Annual January Trip

Ever January I take a trip to see my older brothers in AZ and CA. I'll be leaving on Monday, January 11. I will drop off Idaho spuds to some of my favorite people, and spend a night with my daughter. Then off to southern climes. I will return about two weeks later. I don't know why I am telling y'all about this. Just thought I aught to post once in a blue moon. Which was New Years Eve, by the way.

And if CRASH happens to find the time to read this, (it took her 3 weeks to notice my last post) she can look in her E-mail for a note from me.
