Those are hefty sized boulders, not moveable even with 1935 Relocation monies. And big cranes, without blasting involved.
Wonder if Fanny Corbin was his wife 22 kids, is a whole lotta upbringing.
Yep, did a search on LOC.Gov, I just know in some recess there has to be previous US Relocation Administration maps, unless they've been tossed by them new guys in DC🤬.
link may work🤣
Or that fancy AllTrails app for parks and trails, yep have one👍.
Now, need to shuffle of to dreamland, need to be up at 5am to talk coherently by 6am🤷♂️Don't know about that happening.
@Frozenoem, gotta love the five guys on the Arnold expedition, especially Rob who just casually revealed he'd had a heart attack. I trust the canoe adventure went a little easier than the bateau... maybe?
Never been much for the futuristic or sci-fi but exploring and hunting for the ghosts and remnants of the past is fascinating to me. Especially when you have an old archival photo of a site and compare it to today.
Last month, we went to visit Buck Corbin's old home. Here is an old picture from the NPS archives.
Here is a picture taken from the same viewpoint (more or less).
Mother Nature is fast and furious when she reclaims her land.
Not much was left, since most of the buildings were made of wood which succumbs easily to Mother Nature and fire. A few rock piles indicating foundation and chimney. Even a few very rotted fence posts (knew by the nails)! We were trying to line up the outlines we saw and placement going by the boulders seen in the picture. Boulders are the one constant.
BTW, not sure when old picture was taken. Sometime in the 1920s.
Ah yes, the coveted golden commode award. I remember it well. 😄 And yup, certain words could be typed without offending sensibilities, but some opinions definitely offended and invited slaps on hands. 🤣 Not to mention the time (very short time) even the Tr--- word was censored and replaced.
indthinker is the one you're trying to think of. She was OK, except when she went off on some of her wild, crazy, misguided (just 'voicing my opinion' 😉) tangents.
I don't live on a mountain, but time to go chip out the ice from the furkids' water bowls. Nah, still don't have warming bowls for them. Got enough cords running out to their heated kitty beds. 😸
Stay warm, everyone and don't let your water freeze. 🧊
Have to admit have missed your photo's from hikes much as I miss hikes generally.
USGS maps and google always gave me great sites to visit, or attempt to locate like Benedict Arnold's route remnants, to Quebec.
Not really a road per se.🤣 Took a canoe not a bateau, much lighter😎.
It's like watching a video to discover lost remains of Lombard (log hauler powered by steam) remnants on lake or 2 Locomotives abandoned in the Maine Northwoods.
The ACE award was merely filling out some boxes, Et voila. I'm loosening up slowly on information shared🤣, to a point!
Maturity or Alice B no longer know , easier to get than a golden commode award (different site)😇😆🤣.
Still need to protect some information but, easier than TMJ as I play with balances in my mind. How much is to much info.What gets me in 💩💩 with employers past or present and promises signed (that was a major pain to put in words).
Yes, miss the other site where words could be typed without offending delicate sensibilities.
Haven't had a knock down drag out Political since practicing shrink on the other group. Remember her creosote issue with asbestos tiles in basement but, nom de plume is forgotten. Much like Rose 🌹 and useless insurance guy? Come 3 am no doubt will come to me. Almost remembered while typing.
Re: Brutal conditions of early ancestors did that for a few years, it is easier with modern conveniences but, not as much fun.
As dragging sled full of water up from well pump if I remembered water bottle from beside stove to prime the pump.
Finally understand why my grandmother was thrilled when the well pump was put in kitchen, and overwhelmed when a tap or two went on her sink. With hot water from a wood furnace, how to ensure kids would leave house at 90* through floor 4x4' grate vs -30* NH Winter.
Cold in VA too, but dodging the white stuff. ❄ *knocking on wood*
But if it's winter, then it's bushwhacking time again. Back to exploring the old homesites and finding cemeteries in Shenandoah NP. Yesterday was brutally cold up there in the mountain, but we went down in a hollow. Looking for an obscure cemetery marked with fieldstones, est. 4. Did the research, downloaded the old USGS maps, etc., etc. Alas... no cemetery, but found the homesite although not much left.
But here are a couple we found last week.
I'll tell you that hiking through these areas in the winter really makes you appreciate the hard life of the people who lived here before there was a national park. The winter conditions were brutal and there was no electricity or running water to these homes.
Grabbed the wrong Chocolate Mint Brownie from the fridge, an homage to Alice B, Toklas , last night was pain free.
Entering a week of temp's above freezing, presently 32* and sunny. No need for Sorel's by day👍 And/or snowshoes in town, unless I want to break up ice in driveway.
Mood was black, switched to Kaleidoscope colorful after some research proved useful. No calls were made last night , apologies for that.
Today is a different day. Had a problem with young whippersnappers from outside the state which just evaporated.😇😎🤣.
Who knows what tomorrow will bring, aches may or might not hurt, as much. Falls may happen, keeps me on my toes.
Answers to issues coming closer, I need PT feel like a lump, a very skinny lump.A bean pole as @MsStretch would say.
Hungry think I'm having a munchie day, captain crunch pancakes with Maple syrup might be in my future, need to make a mix🤣.
There does appear to be many manuals for S3 Samsung available for download for and from Cell carrier.
Same with you tube videos on ez setup and security updating of Oreo Operating systems for the S3 Samsung Galaxy 🤣.
You should have no issues working through it, at least they offer more updates than previously👍.
When in doubt most providers offer instructions on updating and what buttons to push with fingers or stylus to your new phone.
Will call tonight
Frozen, I have a Samsung Galaxy J3. I do have the same phone number both home and cell. I read through the old posts, sorry you had the flue. Just catching up on the amounts of snow everyone's has gotten. I just hope everyone's is doing well and is safe and warm.
Last night wardrobe consisted of Sorel's felt lined boots(good to -40*)LLBean wardens parka (good to -40*) and a new pair of Austrian Wool Army Pants(comfy to -30*) and incidentals.Was delightful -16* good shoveling weather🤬.
Loss of power, no furnace only wood heat.Coffee Perc'd on campstove. Dinner chicken parm sub in aluminum foil , thrown in woodstove for 10 minutes.
Sleeping and heat for my lower back, supplied by 12V heating pad and power pack that also does USB or AC, not heavy draw appliances.
Today electricity is back, finished shoveling. Parts for pesky snowblower on order. Furnace is cranking cheerily away. Indoor plumbing survived, no freeze-up courtesy of blown-in foam to crawspace and 1 400W heater on low power, on battery backup.
If your number is same will call you😇.
What model # and have you downloaded a manual for your pesky device from manufacturer.
On my cell and laptop, I just bookmark the places in favorites of whatever browser I use.
Some use password managers to remember user name and password👍. That would be me!
Time to move snowblower to back corner, request wood replenishment from outside.
And my personal favorite activity make kindling and oil the table saw with heat in garage. kinda heat wave is coming for week or at least it won't be dipping to Negative numbers.🤣
There is a kerosene heater as of last night in garage.
Hope all remain warm
