    After two weeks off due to wildfire smoke and then rain, we hoisted our drawbridge for the first time today- the winches worked perfectly. We still need to mount the hinge, before we can lift the drawbridge completely up into it's recess, but it's nice to finally have our box enclosed. We're...

    Got four more box-to-bed bolt holes drilled. We now have 16 of the 28 bolts installed and snugged (there is a high wind warning for tonight). Gonna take a break now- taking the wife downtown to see the JP Sears show tonight...
