IMG_9440The last two months have involved a lot of traveling.  While I was away on my last trip a monster windstorm took out the siding on my house, flipped the outdoor toilet and shower, blew a huge steel water tank half way down the road, and ripped doors off of the Wagon Stations.



It feels like progress out here always comes with a price… for every three steps forward there are at least two backward.  So now starts the process of putting everything back together again.  We are always in need of extra hands at times like this – if anyone in the area has some tight woodworking skills and can come help get everything back on line this month give us a shout!
