Nice one on Pangor. Now I hve to line that log up more carefully to make it. Before I was just doing the Hail Mary down it.

Hey Mark, have you decided on a name yet?

I think that "The Angry Penguin" would be good, seeing as how it leads into Pingu.

got some more stuff done today. derwood stopped by to say hello and tell me a depressing but somewhat amusing story. this man is ready to snap, if he goes even the bears won't have a chance. was good to have the rain as i can keep an eye on the new drainage on corkscrew, it seems to be making quite a difference.

so i got the rest of the stringers cut and most of them put into place for the exit ramp of the carousel. sorry about the first pic being so blurry, i took the pic late and didn't want to use the flash so the iso was at 800. my arms aren't that steady when standing, but you get the idea.

second shot turned out way better.

ps - thanks duke

why don't you want to use the flash?

Well, well I been movin' down to Florida.
And I'm gonna bowl me a perfect game.
Well I'm gonna cut off my leg down in Florida, child.
And I'm gonna dance one-legged off in the rain.

because the small camera flash is useless for outdoor pics in low light. it also distorts the colour of the picture. i just have to spend some time to play with the settings on my digi cam i think.

it's okay, i was there when he came in. i've told him where it is.

so today i got more work done, got lots of rungs cut to go on the stringers.

first pic is the entrance ramp for this stunt i had previously made.

this one's just a better view of the whole ladder

oh look, the trail fairy has been by to drop off a pile of rungs, how nice

and finally the exit ramp with rungs on it
