Hiking adventures part 2

Thank you dear readers for all your comments and support on my last post! It's so fun to be able to share here. You can see my dog was also thrilled with the news of Dogsled Dreams being published. This is her being thrilled for me.

The party lasted for a few days, but now normal life returns. I'm eagerly awaiting word from the editor assigned to me and loving the family feel of 4RV Publishing.



Congratulations flowers from my man.




And now on to more outdoor adventures featuring the pond crossing conundrum. In an earlier post I asked how you think we should cross this. Here is our first genius and cheap attempt. The initial try worked well, however since we used rope, it soon stretched and the next poor sod to try a crossing got quite wet. We are now working on plan B which involves slightly more speed and danger. Stay tuned.

A zip line? That would be a fun way to cross :) The pond is beautiful.

Keep working at that little 'bridge.'

And I love the photos!

You are a brave soul. My sons went on a zip line this summer at the New River Gorge, they really enjoyed it.

i sure hope it was Denis that got wet!

After that little unexpected bath I might be looking at a boat. Something suggests to me that you are going to end up with a rope bridge. Anything more just wouldn't be exciting enough for you. heheh

I like the idea of a zip line. :] Maybe a sturdy metal wire would work.

Just get a running start and JUMP!? Okay, no...

But judging from the photos in your sidebar, I'm pretty sure you'll rig something effective. Can't imagine this little puddle stopping you for long.

We visited a dogsledding camp this summer, on our trip to Alaska and Canada. It looks like a lot of work - but fun!
