Tuesday Night 10:30

Michelle and Jax

It's been a different sort of winter at Base Camp. During winters I go exploring. Then Sarah showed up to help around the place and we did some hikes together. Mike came in from Vermont to do some work and he's busy all the time. Johnny quit his job at Caveman. I picked him up and he's doing a bunch of work here.

Michelle and I met two years ago. Michelle came out to the lodge and we spent four or five days hiking and got along really well. We mutually agreed we should do it again. Then she moved to Colorado and I never saw her again. Recently I heard she was back in Salt Lake so a month or so I called her and left a message if she wanted to go to a hockey game. I never heard back. Last week in Salt Lake she called and ask if the offer to come out to the lodge was still good. I said it was but I hadn't seen her for two years so perhaps she should come out and spend a few days to see if we still like each other. On Monday she pulled up in a truck with all this stuff. So I guess she decided we still like each other and I guess I have a girlfriend and I guess I have a dog.

The Never Ending Story

1am Sunday Morning

Everyone had gone to bed but I was finishing a book and refused to sleep until I finished it. Once I did I decided to check the trap under the lodge and the smaller skunk had fallen for the new plan.

Another New Plan

We reset the trap. Later Johnny went and checked it and a smaller skunk had somehow gotten the hot dog out of the cage and was sitting on top of it eating the hot dog. So, we have another new plan.

Johnny: Saturday Evening

It's Saturday evening and Johnny has just come in the living room to tell Sarah and I there's something in the trap. He's excited. Little bit of language.
