From HB Summer 09
More VSOP (visible signs of progress) weekends leading up to big build 1. Mike, Malcolm and Kevin with big help from Eric and small help from erected two large posts for the deck. It was a lot of muscle, geometry & no doubt a little luck, but the posts are in. We used logs for these, since they are too long to go through the mill.
Malcolm laid out a disc golf course, and made several great tonals. The course is made up of tonals that take you on a pleasant tour of the lower Halkett Heights landscape. Malcolm is an avid disc
From HB Summer 09
golfer who's played courses all over the Pacific Northwest and even in Costa Rica, so it's great to have his expertise. I feel so guilty we didnt' even get to play the whole course before we left. Come back soon Malcolm, we'll make it up to you we promise!
Not too much to report in the wildlife department but Maddy's little tomatoes are loving the sun and turning orange.
The receipt for our grocery bill for the first big build was longer than kevin's arm, and we're not done yet. The windows have made it over to the island and up the hill without breaking which we're taking as an omen that it's going to be a great week!

Help Gambier Island

Gambier Island is facing numerous environmental threats at the moment when we are seeing a rebirth of wildlife. Wolves, whales, owls and more, all around us we see evidence of an eco-system on the rebound. But that resurgence is threatened by plans to allow clear-cutting, develop LNG plants, sink warships.
