HELLO on this very rainy night and rainy week. The central air conditioner was winterized today and all the summer garden decorations have been put away for another year. So we are now into Harvest Thanksgiving, and soon to follow Halloween. Then...it's so difficult to say - the Christmas Season will be upon us.

Trust all is well my Basecamp Friend.
...like to stop by now and then and say howdy. Trust all is well with you and yours in your neck of the woods.

Hi ND. Fires are troublesome right now. The Caldor Fire is aimed right at Lake Tahoe. The smoke is bad. We are tired of the heat. Covid is coming back. Otherwise we are doing fine and involved in some house remodel. I hope to go camping if we get a break in the smoke. Hope you are well.

Thanks, I'm doing well and getting out as much as I can too. Strange things are happening in the lands and it makes one nervous. Glad you are doing well.
...just stopping by to say "howdy" - hoping you and yours are all doing fine in your neck of the woods.

Doing fine here. We've had some great outings this summer and still have some more to go. The backpacks have stayed in the closet but we've driven into a lot of remote places.

I've enjoyed the pics from the canoe trips. Our water outings have been either Sons big inboard or just paddling around the little lakes in the kayaks.

Keep up with your trip reports. We really enjoy your posts.

Thank you and you do the same; you are the backbone of this site and what you do is always appreciated too.
What are you doing? You just had a birthday last year. Oh...right, I forgot - they come every year at the same time. I HOPE YOU HAVE A VERY HAPPY DAY GRANDPA - best wishes!

Thank you. Yes, the years add up faster and faster. But they are still good years. Grandma and I just spent a wonderful 8 days road tripping through Idaho and Montana with our oldest daughter. The beauty of this great land and it's wonderful people still overwhelms me. There's just something about a campfire that brings out the best in all of us.

...you are absolutetly right!
Excellent "stuff" as usual Roybrew. You are far ahead of me this year. Covid is still taking its toll in this area and movement is still very much restricted. I didn't comment on the post as we need to see others online. I always enjoy what you post. Trust all is well in your camp.
With Covid 19 raging in our neck of the woods I find Outdoor Basecamp an oasis Jason. Thanks.

Touring Southern Utah this week with another couple. Grandma and I hiked in 3 miles to a beautiful waterfall today. We are paying dearly tonight. Ha ha.
Hello Jason. Just stopping by to say thank you for this site. I can appreciate that it can be labour intensive on occasion. Happy Easter to you and the family.
...I read your posts with great interest and am flabbergasted of how much we have in common. [Kinda like that.] For example, I was on the professional staff of the Big Brother [now Big Brother/Big Sister] Association. :Smile2:

I am currently teaching two teen-aged brothers to ride horses. They had Crack Parents and are wards of the State. They are the first kids I have worked with that really want my help. So I am giving it to them. We are going to do some hiking besides our one day a week horse work. I have a great horse a 22 yo Warmblood mare that is teaching all three of us.

Well...you see now...how important you are and the good things that you are doing? All power to you "Pine" - we need guys like you. Having said that, it's going to be a challenge, though a good one, it's still going to be a challenge all the same. You are wise in having a horse involved. Strange as it may seem, this added resource can be mighty powerful. Keep me posted - I'm interested.
...just dropping in to say hi. Trust all is going well in your neck of the woods Grandpa. It sure is cold in my neck of the woods - 2. Though it is bright and the days are getting longer.

Thanks for dropping in. We've had a very mild winter. Keep up your great posts. I've enjoyed them immensely.
