Quote from: MountainDon on May 07, 2012, 08:23:09 PMI came up with an idea from shooting experience. I made a crude instrument, a sight from some 1x pine, 1/8" hardboard and some aluminum scrap, plus an old RV fridge level to add some professionality to it. Ta-da I have a line I can use to string fence whenever I decide to.Thought maybe somebody else could use the info someday
Quote from: AdironDoc on May 23, 2012, 11:00:08 AMGreat idea, Don! I just acquired some additional acreage which is crudely marked. With borders of 4200ft, I can't imagine the cost of getting the parcel professionally surveyed If I can find the corner pins in the dense woods, and at least a few intermediary markers, I'll do what you did. Why not sell a cheap DIY kit? Bravo!Doc

Remote, bad roads at that time of year, dealing with missing section markers, multiple trips to the far away county seat, researching the chain of ownership, tracking down neigbors to sign various documents, figuring out a quitclaim solution that everyone was happy with... the least of his work was actually doing the survey!
Quote from: MountainDon on May 25, 2012, 12:34:38 AMUpdate on the guest bunkhouse that I mentioned we were thinking of building. Budgetary constraints demand that we downsize the cabin. Yes, I know it is already on the small side, but there are people who actually have small cabins they use all the time. So I took a day or so and put together a simple little bunkhouse.Here it is not quite completed...
