And Were Back...

Well, it’s been a long few weeks…

Learned how to install a new roof, then did all 37 squares of my own roof…which meant stripping all the old shingles, replacing over 60 sheets of plywood, replacing one rotted out header, and then re-shingling everything…

All I can say is that I have a new found respect for the roofing profession…

We started on Thursday July 15th with preparations, and ended up finishing everything on Saturday July 24th. Long 9 days, but was well worth it…learned a lot…

One the 24th, we were up at 6AM to push the finishing touches on. We finished the last ridge vent at 1PM, and by 2, we were packed, and ready for the 15 hours drive to Bar Harbor, ME. By 5:30AM, we were pulling into the camp site, and were ready to enjoy a little vacation time…

The week was great. Little fishing done due to some unforeseen circumstances, but we did manage a few Mackerel and Pollock with a spinning rod…(I know, I know)…

Starting tomorrow we should be back to swinging the long rod for some bass…and hopefully will start weekly reports up Sunday/Monday.

In the mean time, here’s some of the pics from the trip…


And we're back...
