Some of the comparisons of early and current photos are really quite interesting. That is a really cool project and I am surprised that I had never heard of it. Thanks for sharing that.

Funny, there were no line-ups in our hay field northwest of Sundre.

Jim, I was going to send you a PM asking about using your hay field, but that would have meant driving 2hrs in the wrong direction. If the lineups were only a little bit longer, it would have been faster going your way.

On Saturday, our Escape 19' facilitated a fun day trip to paddle whitewater on the North Saskatchewan River west of Rocky Mountain House. We hit all of the rapids we could find between Horberg and RMH, including the infamous Devils Elbow. I had the electric bilge pumps working in my solo open canoe, so even though I took on a lot of water, I never had to stop and dump once. We had a great day. The only swimming done was when my buddy dumped his kayak in the Brierlies Rapids and saw them from close up.

Just back from the Nordegg area and replaced my top wind jack that was looking a little beat up with a side wind jack. Pretty simple and straight forward, remove 3 bolts, replace the old jack with the new one, put the 3 bolts back on.

I unhooked my power cord and I'm exercising my batteries for a week period just letting the solar do it's job. Yesterday I saw the 14.6v boost cycle occur and right now it is 13.6 v. At night it drops to 12.6. I have several things plugged in causing a small drain.

Hi: cpaharley2008... Why not just take the batteries with you when you walk the dogs?? Alf

Winter Parking Spot

Tested my winter parking spot out for our Escape 19 and then also test fitted the Calmark trailer cover. I have had the cover sitting in our garage for about the last four months I think it was past time I got the cover out to test fitted it. Over all I am happy with the quality of the Calmark cover for the fit and finish. I do think the cover is worth the extra money.
