We got the electricity turned on up at the cabin, but unfortunately, the electrician never did a grounded evaluation of his work, nor did the county inspectors. Upshot: there are quite a few dead shorts in lines here and there, and with the help of the venerable Man From Tennessee, we've done what had to be done to make things work as well and as safely as they can be done without another $5000 worth of outside work...
And that picture of Drie? That's the happy place I go to in order to survive the aggravating combination of other's shoddy work and my own lack of knowledge and expertise in most areas of life.

We left SpringTown at around 7:30 and made stops here and there, getting up to the Madison River pretty darned late in the evening; 'round 6:30, in fact. It's not easy to find and make a good camp at that late hour in the fall...
The kids were a joy and the people we met as good as we've ever seen on these trips.
It's one of those traditions that sustains the soul and exposes
all manner of flaws on my part, but it's something we'll be doing as long as my joints will support me and petrochemicals remain cheap enough for my slender means to purchase all the way up to the Beartooths and back.
