Well, we finally finished the cabin.  Its been a long haul, and a ton of work, but in the end, worthwhile.
Last weekend we were all out finishing odds and ends such as trim, cabinets, built in table, and I went out last Tuesday and Wednesday to finish the Propane light install.  We also spent the night out enjoying the peace and quiet out there.
Watching the light fade on the mountains of the Coast Range, fire crackling, glass of wine in hand, in the comfort of our cabin, was a gratifying moment.
We could look at every aspect of the construction and harken back to the day that particular bit of work was completed, and all it took to complete.  Very satisfying.
Heres a chronicle of the work from start to finish.

More video fun

Since its cold, I'm making some videos that I have been putting off for a while.
This one is of the Old Dawson Trail ride 4 of us did last February.

Tramping in New Zealand

They call it tramping, we call it hiking, but either way, hiking in NZ is fantastic.  No bears to worry about, huts everywhere so no tent.  Which is great, as it rains.  A lot, so being able to dry out at the end of the day is a good thing.  Having said that, we only had three days of light drizzle.  Apparently La Nina` winters translate to dry and warm in the antipodes.
So here is the video I put together of our trip.  I need to get better video editing software, as the Windows offering is a bit limited.  Hope you like it.
