Time Event
Long Cold Day
Today the weather cleared. As soon as we were awake, fed, and dressed, we started working on assembling the trailer shelter, and we were at it all day until after sunset. Boring Details.Collapse )

While we didn't get the plastic sheeting up to complete the shelter -- Lisa estimates that's nearly and all-day job by itself -- we did get a significant portion of the job done. Unfortunately, we have no more time yet, as I'm heading back to California tomorrow afternoon. So unfortunately it may not be until February or so before we can finish this, unless Lisa is able to score someone else to help her or if she can get it done herself. Still, she says having me there made a huge difference, because I could hand things up to the roof or brace things that would be awkward for one person, and so forth.

After spending a day standing in the cold, I ache considerably. I said to Lisa, "I wish we were at a hotel with a big hot tub," and she seconded that notion.

Current Mood: exhausted
Last Post of 2007
I'm shutting down my computer here at my father-in-law's house and packing it up for travel. (Yes, I saw the new rules about lithium batteries. One of my two computers will go in checked luggage with its battery installed; the other computer and the other spares, all of which are within regulation, go with me onto the plain.) I won't be online again until sometime on the 1st -- at PDX if I have time, or when I get back to the Bay Area.

This evening, as the freezing fog rolled in, so did many people to the Mehama Community Church across the street from us. (And note that "street" here is a minor gravel road.) They have a New Year's Eve party there, it seems, and we expect there to be noise and fireworks in about two-and-a-half hours. Lisa and I will probably play an Empire Builder game, that being how we've spent most of our evenings on this trip. Happy New Year!

Current Mood: tired
