I spent a couple days in 100+F splendor this past week up at the Hideout.
Did a bit more finish carpentry at the White House, installed the center front bay window in the Spartan, laid out the location for the wildlife pond, detailed and reinstalled the original stove/oven and finished reading "The Harder They Come" by T.C. Boyle.
On Tuesday, Craig Deutsche picked me up and we met up with Alden Loucks (grandson of Lou and Nancy Traver of the Traver Ranch that I caretake). He was the last one to farm the ranch in 1986 and a true Carrizo treasure. He led us around the entire Southern Caliente Range where he grew up and explored on his '46 English James motorcycle. What an amazing childhood exploring these hills!
The sunset reflection on the new front window turned out amazing and I wish more of you could have been there to see it firsthand. I've never seen skies as beautiful as in Carrizo.
