Finally got the Black Powder Rifle out for some shootin' https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=tnh3CLgD1f8 I waited 'til night-time so the flames really showed Ok, the US adventure draws to a close now. I still have a few videos to upload though, plus a nice surprise...
Found some time to get a shelf put up in the warehouse complex. Hole nearly dug out… The earthworks not only is massive and dense, but Mike is going to the next level and reinforcing it with blocks of SOLID concrete! I am not joking, these things weigh beyond 80 lbs in weight...
First gate frame ready! They’ll be four of them in all. Two for the main entrance way and two for the emergency exit / auxiliary entrance Second one ready! And a third one also done! I get the fourth one in sized and notched, but leave it laying there in sections for now. I’ll spike...
4th to 16th August The rope used for pulling the rock of the ages had been bothering me for a while. Under the strain of the come-alongs it had become as tight and difficult to undo as surely the Gordion Knot of Alexander the Greats time. I had my camera handy and decided to have a go at...

1st – 3rd August I have returned intact! The next few days passed without incident. Work on the great dig continues, I went at it like a berserker for about half an hour and got all the remaining surface soil pick-axed to oblivion. Mike, obviously impressed with my prowess wielding the thing...

25th July – 30th July Woke up a bit later this morning, the nightly mouse-traps I’ve set up are working, I’ve had great sleep since most of the little rodents have been culled. Otherwise I’d always be disturbed by their scurry-scurry underneath my tent! I make sure to trigger any one’s that...
Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=QKWKHFt1Nq4 A buxom blonde girl in period dress ‘greeted’ us both with something bordering on a scowl. At first I kind of reckoned this was a person not happy, but then again maybe some of the mountain women could be like...
24th July Completed work on the first of hopefully many barrier fences for MMM. Here’s the story by video and pictures… https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=7278Tmh8fX0 Sawn to length Hammering in the Spikes Cross-section bracer You can make two of...
18th – 23 July For now the latest focus is on digging out the hole so the cabin can be built. I reckon a week and it’ll be ready. Mike would be up and ready at 6 in the morning as he’d usually make a start. Then I’d join him by about 9 and do some digging. Then by about 11 in the morning...
17th July A day of many happenings both on and off the Mountain Hold. Getting out to the town for a resupply saw us do the shopping and other usual chores. After a databurst at the library we were leaving to return back to the mountain when, right across mainstreet ambled two buck deer as...
We were in the nearby town a few weeks back and something of what I'd consider a very American Cultural Event. Interesting to watch... https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=nXA2lKjjuDs
16th July The fire-department drove past yesterday, heading up to one of the Cabineer’s near to us. Mike reckon’s that they are having plenty of good tree’s cut back from their buildings to claim a $1500 bounty. Supposedly this is so there is less fire-risk but I consider it a city-origin...
15th July There’s been some strange mooching’s afoot outside my tent at night, this doesn’t bother me too much as I’m within It’s semi-secure confines. However, the night previous I had a strange experience having woken from a dream. I could here the unmistakable noise of a beast making a...
It took a few days overall but we got it to where it needed to be. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=nW6UTXjNBn4
Today we made great progress on both the ATV and Dirt Bike. MMM's Fuel Bunker After putting some fresh gasoline in the pair we had them both started up and ready to roll!. MMM went for a spin on the ATV. Grey coloured and over twenty-years old, it reminds me of the Pine-Marten creature I...
Then I got back to some projects. One of which is setting up a firing position on the range and zeroing the .22 carbine. Rangework I gathered an old pallet, two thick logs, some mesh sacking bundled together, some padded material and hessian to waterproof it in...
8th July MMM got his ATV out of storage today and it’s battery still had some charge. We got the tires pumped up on it and the scrambler bike. I cleared an area for a 100 yard firing range, paced out the distance, set up the swing target and looked for a decent firing position. A lot of...
