Waaaaay late photos I know, but better late than never. [16]

Stringing up the long line for the inevitable rain.

Since we have power, we're going to use it...all of us. [16]

A fishing we will go.

Some of the assorted old "toys" that it was time to get rid of. I went for my first rail ride in this one many years ago. My friend who was driving stopped suddenly part way to our destination and asked if I was ok. I was bewildered and said yeah, why? He said I was laughing and giggling the whole ride and he want to make sure I hadn't lost it. [15] Sold!

This Sprint Firefly, dubbed the "Fi Fi", has been all over and on every terrain you can imagine. It has even been used as an ambulance to rush a hurt rider to the Merritt hospital via the forestry roads. Once parked at Merritt emergency and the injured person removed a page was heard, "would the driver of the...uhhh...dune buggy?...please remove your vehicle from the ambulance parking. If not for the Fi Fi one of our own would have surely died that day. Didn't sell that weekend, but may be gone by now.

Priming the old sled for the annual May run. She didn't budge this year, even with free-pouring the gas into the carb.

The result of our comings & goings from camp. I though it looked cool.

Various packing up to go home pics.

Gathering the empties from the tub. The deal is that while seated around the fire you chuck your empties onto the roof of the cabin and IF they roll off and into the tub then you’re a superstar! The kids are good this clean-up by now.
