The 50 trees planted along the road are coming along nicely. Making plans for the “old swamp” and now the “new meadow”.
Here is a before and after panorama of how things can change. A flat line tornado last year took out 1/3 of the trees. This year took out 2/3 of what remained. On the positive side, we now have the most incredible views of the Milky Way at night.
Pictures from 2011 compared with this year:
Just 1 image height. Beautiful day and I just wanted a quick shot.
We got the call we’d been dreading: Steve had sold the land next to Sebago Resort. Worse, demolition of cabins 7 and 8 was to begin within days. Nothing to do but gather the troops, dash to Nisswa, and salvage what we could. Doug bought his “awesome set of tools”, fun was had, and nobody got hurt.
We extracted the hard wood floors in cabin 7. Original 1920s flooring. Pieces up to 21 foot long. Impossible to get anything like that today.
Below is the interior of cabin 8 with the flooring removed.
From the guys trip in late September, 2008. Chuck and I just hanging out.
Image has very little exposure overlap and lots of obvious errors, but I made the best of it.
This panorama is huge: 34K x 9K pixels. Taken in 2011, but I had a lot of trouble building it. The recent upgrade to hugin made it easy.
Just an old picture from some years ago. Was before I knew about hugin so it is very simple and has lots of issues.
This picture was taken Memorial weekend, 2012. I’m starting to learn a few things, so it only took a few days to put together rather than a few weeks.
Second picture from the “living room”.
