The makings of an off-grid swim raft

We are goin' with the Tom Sawyer, Mark Twain theme..."are ya feelin' it" people?
ya know, the one raft you always wished you had as a kid to play on and go down the river!
YA! That one!

Let's just say its going to take some more logs and some more time...

this new life we lead, we have plenty time and that's just fine with us...

What a wonderful idea! Your kids are gonna love it when it's finished. They can go exploring, and with their imaginations the possibilities are endless! Thanks for sharing with us. Take care, Ang, from KY.

What kind of washing machine do you use, lol looking at all that mud on your menfolks, I made some homemade laundry soap, good stuff... People laugh at me when I tell them that I made homemade laundry detergent.. people are so spoiled , running to the store for everything... wonder what they would do if the bottom drops out and no store? how would they survive? that looks like fun, floating down the river..
