Guess Who's Back?




Ahoy there, fellow bloggers!

It's been a long two weeks, but I've finally returned home (and finally have internet again). Orientation for University is tomorrow, so I got off on Saturday night, went camping, and got back Monday. Working was quite intense; every day was 12-15 hours, plus an hour drive there and back. As you can tell, the worksite was kind of in the middle of nowhere. (btw, you can click on any of the pics to make them larger)



Yep, I was down in farm country, where the temperature was consistently 33 degrees (91 for you Americans!) outside. Which, really isn't too bad, but it gets super hot working inside the house itself. It must have been closer to 36-37 degrees inside. This made all the flies that had somehow gotten into the house, coup themselves up against the windows at all times. It was really gross.



Luckily, by the time I left, the temperature was closer to 15 degrees, so all the flies died off. Pidgeons were apparently living in there too (poop was all in the rafters) but I didn't see any.



Here's the tool I used the most...



You need to drill the holes through all the studs/floor boards and pull all the wire through it...



And that is how all of your houses circuits are done up!



This picture is for everyone who saw the last post. Here is the gym, with their kids slide to give you an idea of how big it really is (it took both me and my stepdad to move that slide, btw. Its probably 8 feet long).



And as I said, at the end of all of it, me, my gf and a bunch of my friends went camping in Waterton National Park, one of my favorite places in the world. I think this picture sums up why I love it so much. Its just so beautiful.




That about does it for now though. Now that I'm back, I can't wait to go through all your blogs and see what you've been up to! I also have a few more posts in the making, so expect those in a few days!

  3. That slide looks like trippy a duct. Guess I've spent too much time looking through attics with my bad eye. I wish you great fortune at Uni.
