Thanksgiving - October 2013

We spent Thanksgiving at my Brothers camp (cottage) in Dunns Valley, ON.  The weather was spectacular! (a little cool at night)
  It was the "Maiden Voyage of the "EEE".  A very good weekend!

What a cutie!!

You can not hide from me & my camera!

Trash Can Turkey

The turkey...all spiced up & ready to cook

The turkey is in the!

Might as well take advantage of the coals on top & cook other stuff!

Waiting, & cooking............

Turkey is done!
The turkey cooked pretty quick.  It was not the best though.  
It was our first "trash can" turkey, & it was really dry, & had a smoky taste.  
I think we had it too hot & it started to burn in spots inside the can & the smoke had nowhere to go.  
The new Lodge Tripod with lunch on the dutch oven
Love the new tripod!  Every outdoor cook needs one!


Coffee in my PJ's - but it got hot in the sun!

My Dad

My parents camp (cottage) - My favourite place in the world!!!

The camp is on a remote muskeg lake, over a big hill on a road barely passable with a vehicle, 
3 seasons out of 4.  If you want to go in the winter, you need a snowmobile.
It is the only cottage on the lake, & just how we like it.  (quiet)  
Surrounded by towering maples, we tap trees in the spring.  
My husband & I will probably be living here, full time & off the grid as soon as the kids are done highschool.

Somewhere behind Mom is where the Yellowstone will live.

The truck - made it up the cow the cow trail

The back of the camp & the water tower.  Somewhere to the left of the camp is where "Big Ugly" (our 1970's Yellowstone Capri) will have a permanent home.

Showing off the new doors for the sugar shack - nice smile too!

Nice doors Dad!!
