Staking out

Carroll and I spent the entire afternoon at the property. With the new weedwacker I made a trail through the tall wild parsnips to our preferred house site. We staked out the periphery of where our house would be located, and set up a screened tent fly to provide some reprieve from the horse flies and deer flies which are voracious around here. At this point we started building our house. This is or will be covered in another blog.

The woods were very difficult to pass through if you did not stick to the paths. This is largely due to the damage caused by the 1998 Ice storm that beset this entire area. Consequently many tree tops were broken and branches were hanging down low make passage very difficult.
