With the junior instructors in tow I made the slow and peaceful drive off the main road and back along the bush road to the spot. It's amazing how along that short 5 minute drive that all of the world's worries and the days stresses slowly disappear with each passing red pine.
Much to my surprise John had lumber unloaded and the old skill saw just a humming away. It turns out that John couldn't sleep a wink thinking of the progress that laid ahead of him and his cabin in the bush. So as the clock turned 0600 hrs John rolled through Tim Horton's and with caffeine in hand rushed out to the cabin.
With youthful exuberance John and I worked away and rested only long enough to take it all in.
Enjoy the pictures.
