Backpacking in the Pacific Northwest

My Friends and I found this great backpacking trail that leads up into high alpine forests… We camped at the upper lake at about 6500 feet… The water was such a cold blue/green because this lake is fed by a glacier year round… There were billions of huckleberries all over the hillsides… We made an […]

I guess i never even thought about it until I saw this normal family guy wash all the bugs and road grime off of his entire motorcycle using the ice bucket as his cesspool wash bucket… Then I though of all the hotel parties and other shenanigans that goes on in hotels and motels… People […]

This was a 24 pack of bottled water for the low low price of $39.99! This was also in Glacier NP… I know that’s only $1.66 a bottle but you should at least get a discount on buying a case… I’ve never seen water that expensive ;]

Composting using salvaged pallets

I’ve been wanting to make a compost bin for so long and I finally saw someone with a great “free” idea… Use 3-4 pallets to make a bin… I found some really good free pallets and screwed them together to make a contained compost bin that’s really easy to turn and gets a lot of […]

Trellis out of reclaimed wood and cattle panel

I made some trellises out of some great salvaged wood a neighbor was throwing out… I zip-tied some cattle panel on both sides. They fold up, hold a lot of weight, and look really nice too. note months after: I might do mine more vertical next time because it was hard to get to the […]

Useless yard into a garden…

We had a spot in the yard that nobody ever saw or used… So we made a garden!┬áRipping out the grass is a pain I’ll be honest but having a huge area to garden in is well worth it if you are into it… Now I spend a lot of time in that area ;] […]
