We made a quick stop at the SC this weekend on our way to Abilene. Everything turned green and we had to mow again. The view from the food plot to the tank.

I planted Turner Seed Fall Mix last Fall. This is what my plot looks like right now. I need to figure out my plan for this years Dove and Fall plots. I think Iím planting Turner Seed Dove Mix but only in 2 acres instead of all 5. Then plant the other 3 acres later for the Fall.

We also upgraded the futon cover and came up with a spice rack idea to hide the hot water heater. The inside of the cabin is done!

Well I did add the cinder blocks I was missing so now the base is all the same albeit still not to the satisfaction of the official SC engineer. The new base was tested though. More test will be needed to see how it holds up.

We also added a drop down bed skirt to ďhideĒ the cinder blocks so itís like they arenít even there.

Stan and I made a quick trip to the SC this weekend to get ready for a couple of guys coming out to shoot pigs when they are in town for the NRA show.

For the first time I mowed most of my interior roads with my riding mower. It mowed real well.

After being shorted parts on two different trips from the factory, the basketball goal continues to kick my ***. I have 2.5 ladder stands and a basketball that Iíd pay good money to be put together so I can get those off my list!

Stan had a blast and slept the whole way home. I havenít rolled through TC pics but I did see a turkey in camp. They should like all the mowing I did.

Not sure how I missed this, but I'm all caught up now. Place is really looking great! Keep the pictures a coming.

Oh and I'm with Devin on the center block sign off. At the least I would turn them 90 degrees and use a 2x6 on top of them to set the bed legs on.

I had a couple of guys in town for the NRA show that got into the pigs last night. They shot 5. Hopefully I can pull some images off their thermal.

Lots of fire power in camp.

Work took me to the area, so Iím getting to overnight at the SC. I had enough time to hop on the mower and knock out the yard work so we donít have to do it this weekend. The new party porch is also finished. Iím looking forward to knocking out some smaller projects and hopefully getting the wife on a pig.

Looking good. Big time progress. How long til you start mixing that sackcrete for that porch floor? You know it's coming.
That camo paint job on that container is slick!
