Over the weekend MacGyver and I decided to go out to our cabin in the remote location of Holopaw. Suburban Estates to be exact. The original ‘If you believe that I’ve got some swamp land in Florida property’. Make sure you click on that link after you read this post and read all about how Suburban Estates came to be, it’s quite interesting.
So we loaded the pups in the truck and we headed out.
Anyhow, before I was so rudely interrupted, when you don’t visit your remote cabin for 8 months guess what happens? Go on, guess. I’ll tell you what happens. Grass happens. And lots of it. It looks like this.
Somebody has some grass to mow, oh shit!
Somewhere in all that grass there is a cabin.
Oh yes, I believe you can actually see it now.
And then you get closer and you can actually really see it.
The closer we got the more depressed I got. Look how tall the grass is!
Now imagine how I felt when MacGyver told me the lawn tractor was broken.
Can you imagine mowing all of this with a push mower?
I mowed about a half acre with a push mower before MacGyver got the lawn tractor fixed and by that time I decided I was going inside and I took a very long break.
Once inside we actually have all the comforts of home. I have a full kitchen area complete with a microwave a toaster a mini fridge a sink and a little area to wash dishes.
And in case you’re wondering, the sink actually has running water due to the water tower located outside behind the cabin.
And we have an inside bathroom too because I refuse to try to find a spot outside. Do you know how difficult it is to try to find a bathroom while carrying around a rifle and buckshot? Yeah, it’s not a pleasurable experience trust me.
We also have a wine selection on hand. You never know when one of the neighboring camps is going to drop by and you should always have some libations on hand.
The walls may not be finished but we got libations.
We also have television for those guest who don’t partake in outdoorsy activities. It’s a little janky since MacGyver got a little hyped up on 7 and 7 and knocked it off the table but if you squint your left eye a little you’ll never notice.
See, we have all of the comforts of home. And it’s completely sanitary. Everything in our cabin has been completely and thoroughly tested by the lab.
Lab tested, lab approved!
And he approves of it all.
Since this was our first trip of what MacGyver and I call our ‘camp season’ we spent the first day and a half mowing around 3 acres of grass, and not much of anything else.
We did have a few moments of bon fire time at my insistence of course. hehe
And a little bit of mud time
But they’ll be plenty of weekends on the horizon for lots more fun. We’re back at home now and unfortunately I ended up with a massive migraine last night so I’m recuperating this morning. Hope this isn’t a prediction as to how my week is going to be…
What did you do this weekend? Tell me all about it!
