Land for Hunting and Camping?

In the beginning Frank and Mike talked about buying some land to hunt and camp on. Which we did. But, after several weekends of camping in the cold (with a generator that ran out of gas once) they began to shift to talk about building a cabin. I did not complain once I found out we would have indoor plumbing. (Below is our outhouse--try using that in the winter--not fun! Here is a picture of Mike in his hunting gear and a picture of "Beaver Creek". There is a pond at the back of our property that was formed by beavers building a damn at the base of a creek that runs through our property. It needs a lot of work so we can fish there someday. But, that is where the name Beaver Creek was formed.

2006 and the beginning of 2007 was a lot of fun--and a lot of work. We had many family members and great friends come to visit. We spent many days at the near by lake. The guys cut down hundreds of trees to clear about 3/4 acre for our cabin plans. How many people can say that they watched TV outside.
