Missing the yurt!
 
I haven't been able to spend much time at the yurt the last couple of weeks. This past weekend my wife and I agreed that there was a pretty long list of things around the house to get done that I have been neglecting due to yurt fever. For one thing, the grass was so tall, we were starting to lose the kids in it. :rolleyes: So I spent all weekend getting the yard manicured, the gardens tilled and planted, and numerous other projects, not to mention mothers day!

I really wanted to spend the weekend up at the yurt but whatcha gonna do? Anyway, we are hoping to get a bunch of furniture this week to put up there so I will have an excuse to spend a little time up there during the week and all weekend! :)

I have to work all weekend, including today, so again I am missing the yurt! I have to spend most of today working on yurtforum.com and getting some stuff organized. I really wish I was up there puttering around and getting my various projects done and breaking a sweat followed up by cooling down in the river with an ice cold one.. Sigh....

Just thought I would share.. Now, back to work! :rolleyes:

I'm loving the forum, Jafo. You're doing a great job! Hope you get your yurt time soon though!

Thank you so much! I am hoping to get up there this weekend if all goes well.

Plans have changed a little.. <sigh> There is so much going on with the kids/wife and a couple engagements I forgot about, that it looks like no overnight at the yurt anyway. I will be heading up there tomorrow to cut up some more of the wood, but then heading home. That's ok, I have scheduled at least a week off in August to spend there. The only thing I have to worry about is how I am going to manage this site while I am gone.

Maybe next weekend I can get away. :)

Heading up there for the weekend, in about an hour actually. Hope to get some updated pics! Have a good weekend everyone! :)

Going to head up this Saturday for an extended stay, probably a week. So looking forward to it! :)

Just wanted to check in using my droid w/ mobile hotspot up here in the great Adirondacks! The cellphone booster I am using is working great considering there was never any signal here before! The solar power is working wonderful! I have configured firefox to not load images which makes browsing in 3G much faster.

The last couple of days I have been splitting wood, tinkering with a ham radio antenna, clearing brush, hiking, hiking, and more hiking, and playing with the dogs (who are here for the first time).. They have never been away from home and are having a blast. My Jack Russel has killed about 5 mice living under the yurt so far. He is better than a cat. :)

My neighbor dropped off his skid steer for me, so I have been fixing up my road too!

So busy, so sore.

Hope to check in more before my vaca is over!

So here is the whacky antenna I built out of a sapling and a plastic culvert pipe. Believe it or not, I can hit repeaters in Syracuse NY with this, which is about 90 miles away, so I can hit many miles beyond that :). Not bad for line of sight communications. :)

Wackiest of all is that you can get the yurt to stand on a slope like that one ! :)
