(I had pretty much stopped reading Inventory, but) I'm definitely buying that issue! Congrats, guys!

I'm enjoying my time on the east coast, but it doesn't look like I'll make it down to NYC like I had hoped :( I'll post up some photos soon, but first I need to go buy a battery charger!

Wonderful woodsy and watery trips everyone. Hard to see all the shook down bits though.

Came across some old photos of great gran and pappy Josephine and Jebediah Hill The first couple is from when they went West to stake a claim in the gold fields of Californy. From the third picture, I guess they did all right. Funny, those waist overalls on Jeb sure look familiar.

Your grandpappy sure was a dapper fellow! :)

I've been on the east coast for the past week or so, but barely sitting still. We started out the trip on Cape Cod, MA, for a couple of days. It mostly rained, but we got out of the hotel for a little bit.

Making sure the shores are safe...

During another rare moment of no rain, we went for a walk at the National Seashore. My daughter was snapping about 20 photos of me, and making me laugh.

Sorry, Joseph and zissou,

but both of your pairs cannot compete against mine. i am not a mod, but just reported your post. In fact, your Roys are way down from what they used to be. You're disqualified. ( We need room to make this confusing contest a bit more well- arranged. Thank you ). To say it the alexx way: :D:o:):(:confused::mad::P;):rolleyes::eek:

So forward of your grans to have used some sort of Old West photoshop technique- probably by physically manipulating the film or using a corrosive substance or magnets on the daguerreotype plate?

Thanks, Daniel, robbie, and ranon. I find that vacation is good for me, and I should take them more often. And, markus, what's 'sourpuss' in German? :P

After the Cape, we headed west to the Pocono Mtns of Penssylvania, where my aunt and uncle have a cabin on a lake. They live in the UK, so in exchange for maintaining the cabin, my father and the rest of my family gets to stay there pretty much as often as they like.

I had to get outside after the long car ride.

On the steps down to the lake, looking back up.

There's still time to head down to the lake to skip some stones before the sun goes down.

Hello, sassafras. It sure looked and felt like autumn.

The cabin itself is rather idyllic- built in the 1940's, and not much updated since.

A sign by the ladder up to the loft has me curious...

Cousins playing games together. Seems ok to me :)

My Dad needed help repointing the mortar on the stone chimney because it had leaked quite a bit last winter. Most of a day took care of it pretty well...

After the mortar set up, I had to add a new layer of reinforced tar around the base, because the old tar had cracked quite a bit. I managed to keep it off the Roys.

They were a little worse (or better!) for wear after the job was completed.

Now that the hard work was done, I took some time to join the girls and my Dad down at the lake to catch lunch. Two sunfish and a perch was a tasty (but small) lunch for us!

That is an amazing cabin, and you're making me homesick! I used to live just a half hour or so away from that area. What lake is that?

Edit: Oh, the Roys look good too.

I picked up the same shirt that eltopo posted a few weeks ago. I was actually planning on getting the red striped henley, but Cory made the popover look so good.

Some one wanted some pics of what I carry in my pockets. Below is pretty much it. An overpriced Hillside chambray and a Alden Shell coin purse. I keep mostly collectible coinage. Silver dollars and such in there.
