Platt Monfort of Maine designed this boat and I built it from plans in 2006. The hull weight (without the sailing gear) is about 40lbs. The wood structure is Fir and.
8 Ultra-Luxe Glamping Destinations Around The World
Guests stay in cosy geodesic domes, some of which are duplexes, and devote their days to trekking, horseback riding, kayaking, and wildlife spotting. Nights are spent stretching in the yoga dome or dining and drinking in the three interconnected
What would they like to see. I wonder as I scroll through the miles and days I’ve captured on my camera. I like this one, I think and click the buttons to make a copy in a file I set up for this next chapter in the Great RV Adventure. This one is okay, and I make a copy. I have to show them this one. And before you know it I’ve picked out a hundred and six photographs. Two states, Washington and Oregon, have banned their use altogether and in the early 1970’s these burners have fallen out of general use — although I did see one with smoke coming out of the top. Between the Crazy Horse Memorial and our next stop of North Platte we had over three hundred miles of traveling to do this day. The roads were decent and we had long spans of driving with no turns. And it seemed like Lori and I never ran out of things to talk about. Just past Lewellen, near the turn-off for Ash Hollow State Historical Park, I see boots on top of fence posts. I hurriedly raised my camera and tried to get a picture of it for you but it was blurry, I saw more boots and tried again. Every post didn’t have a boot topper, but a lot of them did. I can’t tell you how many blurry shots I got and with every one I groaned. I was afraid I was going to run out of boots and not get the shot. There were a couple of miles of boots and eventually I did get a couple of shots that weren’t too blurry. Ash Hollow was the gateway to the North Platte Valley and the emigrants used it as a campsite because there was a spring for fresh, clean water, wood for a fire, and grass for the livestock. The emigrants used ropes and would rough-lock the wagon wheels before descending some 300 feet. “Turn right,” Betsy announces when we reach the other side and at this point there was little to do but follow. The roads get narrower and narrower but lucky for two things. First and foremost is that Lori drives the RV with all the command of a seasoned driver. Second, we didn’t pass but one or two cars the whole time we were on these roads. Having said that, maybe this Betsy, this GPS doesn’t announce recalculating — is that a setting maybe. — and the way Lori and I got to gabbing sometimes, it’s entirely possible we missed the turn. But I have to tell you that there is one nice thing about traveling the road less traveled. And that is you get to see things you just wouldn’t have gotten to see had you stayed on the highways. I can’t tell you how nice everyone was to us, holding doors and stepping out of the narrow entryway so I could get Momma (in her wheelchair) past. These large, geodesic domes — looking to all the world like giant golf balls — are called radomes. They use them to protect a variety of equipment used in telemetry, tracking and communications. Besides these six large ones, there are smaller clusters of radomes in different locations around Buckley. Four of them are eligible for a listing on the National Register of Historic Places as they are historically significant. They were built in the 1970’s, consisting of concrete bases, with a large roll-up door and a smaller door, exhaust fans and vents and the outside is white tedlar coated with Esscolam. This one is a little harder to explain. Esscolam is the trade name for a water-repelling coating. I was fascinated to discover that water, even thin layers of water, can cause a large loss of signal strength in transmitted or received signals. This Esscolam stuff allows the water to be repelled in beads rather than sheets and that doesn’t interfere as much. I know that now but I’d never seen one before. Did you know that the magpie, the black-billed magpie to be more specific, is one of only four North American songbirds whose tails make up half or more of its total body length. Magpies are tolerant of humans but you can often see them riding on the backs of bison and cattle picking ticks and insects from them. They sound like a good friend to have around, don’t you think. Momma and I played Skip-Bo until supper time, after which I normally wash up the dishes.
