Our first night on the road was spent a Hedley where we explored what was left of the old mines23611

We got up the next morning looking for a new spot to lay around a came across a nice place just outside princeton called kennedy lake.More or less as soon as we got there we fell in Love with the place and got our own piece of propetry there.Our lot is just under a acre and Is backed on to a little trail the locals call the whipsaw,maybe some of you have heard of it.Needless to say there is tons of exploring to do there,I burned a full tank of gas and saw only a small portion of it but we have a wildlife trail going through our front yard and a large ravine in our back yard.I need to clear a few trees yet to make it habitable but i can Guarantee that will be done in true FIBC style.So when we do the Whipsaw we now have a place to work on or park our broken rigs or just to stop in to say hi and have a beer.Here are some pics of the area.
