Made the long drive from Greeley, Colorado to Nowhere, Minnesota last weekend. Got here Sunday to find things mostly allright and functional. The critical things still work (water, light, heat, toilets, refrigerator, etc.) but things were still pretty soggy and messy in the yard, with tree limbs (& whole trees) down, which impeded access to a few things. Got to setting up and opening up. Power was out to the main outbuilding so...we had to do a few workarounds. Flash forward to today, finally fixed the bilge pump and launched the boat (and even caught a few walleyes). Things are mostly mowed but still look a bit shabby (need to buy another push mower, this one is kaput) but things are drying out and the sun is shining, and...the old place will serve for a few more adventures now. Not hearing any grouse drumming yet and the mosquitoes are pretty darn fierce. Had to also buy a new chainsaw (the flooding killed a number of trees in the yard, dang it). It's always something.
