Land Work Day 2

After a most restful night in The Trailer Southern Man had breakfast and got back to work. It was more of the same - move, scrape, sweep, clean - and by mid-afternoon another large area was clear. The Workshop is starting to feel the strain but at least so far everything that's been moved to that building is supposed to (eventually) be there. To give you an idea of the mess - Southern Man finally reached a corner and uncovered a table saw - yes, a full-sized table saw - that he hadn't seen in ten years. Yes, he knew it was there. Tomorrow he may plug it in and see if it still works.

For afternoon entertainment Southern Man tackled a "pipeline" - that is, a long series of geocaches down a country road - that consumed a couple of hours and was a lot of fun. A lot of them had DNFs ("Did Not Find") recorded but Southern Man was eight for eight, finding the last one just as it began to rain. This was a bit of a surprise, as we're in a drought and the average daily temperature is in the one-teens. Hopefully the stuff that is still in front of The Barn didn't get too wet. But that's selfish - we desperately need rain, and a lot more of it.

After caching Southern Man showered and had dinner and emptied another truckload of trash into the dumpster and headed back out to spend the night...

We split assets 50/50. She got the house, I got the land.
