The Return of S*P*I*T*

 Special Bulletin... The S*P*I*T* Men Find SASQUATCH!!!

Here we see SPIT members Lelko and Vega listening hard as they study a map of the terrain  Squatch likely inhabits.

     S*P*I*T*, that phenomenally named group of hard-working men willing to put their lives and sanity on the line, recently embarked on one of the most staggering expeditions in the history of  such undertakings...            

    ...But first the men had to dig their way through a mountain of ancient wrecks looking for the right mags for Vega's 64 and a half  Mustang 289 'd' code auto-tranny with super tach headers and gt side exhausts .

 After careful consideration the men make their fateful decision and grab destiny by the throat.

Somewhere in an abandoned horse camp on the Lewis River near Mt Adams the men begin their adventure...

Here we see Vega understanding that Lelko may very well have to eat Vega's own legs in order to survive this afternoon jaunt in the woods.

And after long hikes across the foothills of the Southern Cascades with only a bottle of water and a thirst for the truth, the nearly unbelievable team have seen little to dissuade them from their original hunch.
Here Vega shows the camera a severed human hand with a shrunken Squatch Head affixed

Squatch is near. After howling madly into the woods, Vega's cries are answered by a mad cawing of Ravens and the giant crash of a monster tree brought to the ground by...

...something. Something that made these alarmingly virile men jump out of their tents and into the air!

After pulling themselves together, the ruggedly handsome men went on a many mile long search for the downed tree and any footprints that the angry Squatch may have left behind. What they found instead...

...was this crypto zoological puzzle, a butterfly.
Clear Evidence that Squatch was near and crushing small flying insects  (possibly with trees) gave these ravenously hungry guys all the nutrition they needed.

                                    The Ten Thousand Foot Falls our heroes were forced to go over while searching for the destroyed tree

Back at camp the S*P*I*T* fellas go over their story one last time. After assuring each other that they definitely were in the presence of the Squatch they decide to read Vega's favorite choose-your-own-adventure story before Lelko gets the fire started and prepares to eat Vega's legs.

Until next time....

Sasquatch Huntin'

 Check it out, y'all! Kenny and I were building these benches when someone caught us in an unguarded moment. Honestly, not posed at all...  And you all remember Honey Bunny, right? Well here she is showing off her beautiful natural hair color. if there's a girl version of a silver fox, she's it!

These two need no introduction, but check out this next group of fellas...
 That's right, it's the Special Paranormal Investigation Team (SPIT)  This group of ding-a-lings hikes around the woods of this here Pacific Northwest looking for fun bigfoot. Sort of.
We do for sure go on some epic hikes around the Cascade and Coast ranges. For instance, check out Joel and Jacob looking a good 600 feet into that gorge! Awesome, right?

Yeah, well here I am clinging to this rock hoping NOT to look into that gorge. I like living and hate dying, so I don't mind being a scaredy cat from time to time!

 Joel demonstrating just how big of a sissy I am to Jacob.
 The weather has been unseasonably warm for the past few weeks so we've been able to enjoy some amazing sites that might otherwise still be snowed in, or at least a lot less fun to get to.

We rode this frog part of the way up the mountain!

Still a bit of snow in some of the shadier hollows a few weeks ago, but by now even that's probably gone.

 Back at the old homestead Kenny's been sucking up those sunrays...
...and I've been continuing my bench-making duties.

Here's a great shot from way up on one of the coast range mountains in the Tillamook National Forest.  

 Joel is slowly turning into a Squatch, and Jacob has been busy making friends with a lady Squatch!

Well, enough hoo-ha.
More in the future...

Spring Sprang

Oh, hi there. Been a while, huh? Well, as you can see I'm still just a disembodied face on a log. How are you?   
Please enjoy some of this amazing homemade Mayo from Honey Bunny. It's pretty awesome. While enjoying the mayo you could be wearing one of her head kerchiefs and scarfing down that epic egg, sausage and sweet potato mash.

Powell Butte is just about six miles from our house, and except for a very (and I'm talkin' VERY) short jaunt with my ma a few years ago, I never managed to get my ass out/up there, so a couple weeks ago we took a hike.       For instance, here I am on a lovely trail with Mt. St. Helens blown off side in the background (and some other people but I don't know their names and frankly don't care).

 This Is another of the five mountains in our general vicinity, and the closest to Portland...Ladies and gentlemen... Mt. Hood!!!

 Powell Butte is, of course, built, or I guess un-built on some old homesteaders land. All that remains of that guys efforts are this old orchard of hazelnuts or some kind of nut. i could look it up, but so could you.
 The below statement is irrefutably accurate.

 Here's another epic shot of Hood.
 Hey, check it out everyone, its Honey Bunny!
 This is our pet slug Nixon
 Ah yes. the Helicopter that air-lifted me out of Saigon way back in the day. Who could forget?
Our car is starting  to look a little run down, but I think a paint job might take care of that...
 Waiting for my release from Gitmo, Honey Bunny plans for the future.
 ...of her Kombucha scobies and thyme plants.

Meanwhile Me and Joel went on another hike, this time up to Table Mountain above the Bonneville Dam, searching for Bigfoot.

See ya next time with some more adventures of THE LELKO!!!!
