Making a new ground blind, calling it outpost #9
Raking the hill down clearing all the leaves and sticks away, so my trow& grow, has a chance of getting good soil contact.
I swing all the stuff I rake to make a berm that the intruders
Will have to jump or penetrate, to reach my position, when I am on watch.
If this stuff ever comes up, I will post a security camera at outpost #9.
Will post pictures later, no cell Sig. Out here.

sounds like a plan, good luck with the "crop" and outpost. I prefer my outpost a bit more comfortable but if it works..................
I have a big GI, poncho, that will make a nice lean-to if a monsoon comes in. My swamp is a ways down too my right
Won't have to watch out for beach erosion here

Just took a walk in the RAIN, put out another trail cam.
It's been raining or pouring since I planted my seed. My creek
Was all but bone dry, now it's roaring.

It's going to grow/or rott.
Thinking about heading to tractor supply, and picking up another bag of seed, just in case.

Late today I picked up a smaller bag of seed, and filled in some of the thin spots,
Right now were having Thunder showers again. This is working
Out pretty good.

Raining again, having a cup of coffee, in my Henry coffee cup,
Then I am going for a walk in the RAIN out to out post#9, and relieve who ever's on watch now , I'll stand the 13:30 to 14:00 hr. watch , check on the new lawn, to prevent erosion on my embankment.

Just came off patrol, stood watch till 14:00, then went on patrol, found an old Indian trail, that the earliest settlers must of used to get from their summer hunting grounds ,to their winter hunting grounds.
No sooner went on patrol, and my nice gentle rain ,turned into
A full monsoon down poor. Found the track of an intruder in my new growth by out post #9.
Was hoping to find some tree rubs, nothing so far,
Got back off patrol at 15:00 . I couldn't be any more soaked
Than if I tried to walk across the widest part of the hudson.

Just went out with the weed wacker, and took a little off the top. The grass is very fine, maybe it will come back a little thicker ?
