Well as you see we decided to pack 'lite' for our week long trip to Hale Creek
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07002.jpg
We knew exactly where to go thanks to our trusty Mother Nature GPS
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07009.jpg
Jay and his kids were already there the previous day, so after setting things up it was time for a beverage around the fire
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07007.jpg
The rest of the gang showed up and the fun began
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07068.jpg
Flash was so excited she started lactating
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07069.jpg
Capt'n Degsey showed up in the SS Scout
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07197.jpg
It was then time for a three hour tour.....a three hour tour....
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07022.jpg
Capt'n Degsey had his trademark rum & coke
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07027.jpg
Factor preferred the taste of bugs instead
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07028.jpg
Phil was seeing Jay's ass in everything he looked at...
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07025.jpg
it made him giggle
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07030.jpg
We cruised past the east side to see how the 'car people' were making out
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07056.jpg
yup, looks like fun
It was time to towel off and chill back at camp
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07014.jpg
Turns out there were a few problems when we got back
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07210.jpg
Phil did the next smartest thing and started flapping his lips at the guy with the gun
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07084.jpg
They decided to play 'good cop / bad cop' by interrogating a can of Bud to find out where the rest of his friends were
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07087.jpg
The can sang like a canary and it started to get drunk out
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07107.jpg
Factor started feeling frisky and decided to give Capt'n Degsey a boat ride of his own
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07111.jpg
Flash couldn't watch..... again...
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07121.jpg
Factor decided to try out his light saber as opposed to the gun
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07119.jpg
nobody was safe...
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07126.jpg
The sun rise was awesome
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07141.jpg
The weather for the week was awesome
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07241.jpg
I'm not sure, but I think Launie had a birthday or something. Not sure how old she is though
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07209.jpg
Then the place cleared out... I think someone farted
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07239.jpg
We were left alone....
except for a few friends that dropped by for Tammy's birthday
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07215.jpg
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07238.jpg
We had the entire place all to ourselves. Time to kick back and relax
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07275.jpg
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07251.jpg
taking care of business.... serious 'nap time'
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07250.jpg
we managed to get in a little wheeling between naps! :D
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07281.jpg
The creek was pretty high
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/th_HaleJune07202.jpg (http://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/?action=view&current=HaleJune07202.flv)
The water really came up during the week. We had to move our tent for fear of drifting out to the middle of the lake
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07307.jpg
And of course it wouldn't be a trip out to the bush without a little carnage. The cargo carrier broke halfway out the trail to the FSR
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Canada%20Day%20-%20T-Bday/HaleJune07330.jpg
Thankfully I have tons of tie downs

We had a really awesome week.

Ahh it looks like the cargo carrier broke right at the weld. I think a little extra bracing would help.

And side note those pics are awsome!

Yeah it broke at the weld. The way they have it set up, the receiver part sticks waaay to far out. I really should have drilled a new hole for the cotter pin before we left, but we were pressed for time. I went and returned it to PA today.
