This was the " first party" held at the hideout. that what my friend "Mike the Bike" named it.
After the many years I had spent in the area it was not hard to get some friends to come and help us celebrate and bless our place in the mountains.
The first 2 shots my wife got me pretty good , we were packing up and heading back to the coast , I asked her to snap a few of me lounging on the hammock to show off back in the city and here ya go !
First I'm up.
Our humble screen room ,This thing was the most difficult tent I had ever erected before in my life ! It weighted about 35 pounds and had a mile of steel tubing , I had put it up only one time before , And I told this to my friend Joey.
"That's the last time I'll ever put this thing up again"
So I stake it good and strong as you can see and we left it up , thinking it would be good for a couple of weeks as we would be returning that soon , so I would not have to put it back up , all good , ya good idea !
Joey gave me a call about 10 days later and said,
"You know that tent ya said you weren't gonna ever put back again" I say Ya ? "Well don't worry , it's down by the bottom of your pad wrapped around a tree" long silence____
I say "o well ______________!" $#%%^!^%&$% !!!!
There was a storm that had passed with 60mph + winds "Gone with the Wind"
I don't care who ya are. "That's Funny" and that's Joey sitting and enjoying a hot dog.
