Huntersville Part Deux September 18, 2011

Filed under: Life's Musings — Angie S. @ 12:32 am

I loved my first experience at Huntersville so much (after we got it cleaned up) that I talked Zachary into heading up there again without breaking his arm as I twisted it.  Actually, he beat me to the car, he’s always up for doing anything crazy like this!

We had talked it over on the ride back last week and we had discussed a few more improvements we could make so we decided to spend the afternoon doing just that.  I packed a lunch and we followed horse trailer after horse trailer to Huntersville.  It seems they had a big trail ride in the area this weekend.  Dodging horse apples on the road with my car (seriously they were all over the place!) we drove in and got right to work. 

Zach installed a handle on the outside of the outhouse, and a lock inside.  He made three more raised benches and I made posters for the cabin, cleaned the coals out of the dutch oven pad, raked the fire pit area, and restacked the wood pile that had collapsed on one side.

We stopped for lunch then finished up our jobs before heading for home.  Even the boys who joined us last week will be surprised with the new changes when they come up here next weekend!  It looks great!
