Late February '84. Very windy day headed north through the English Channel to the Arctic Circle for cold weather ops.

Near a creek? Something that washed there?
No, actually near a bluff line probably ½ mile to a creek. There’s not been any vehicular traffic or power tools in the Sipsey Wilderness since 1976. I’m thinking maybe a tornado dropping from one of many that have crossed the area. But I don’t really know.

It’s a vintage can, in mint condition worth $45 +.
I left it so the next guy that finds it can have a similar thrill.

I wondered the same thing when I saw the picture and found a few of them on E-bay. And here I am getting thrills seeing wood pallet's. 😊

Out of the box thinking? Yep.
Thinking about the cleaning crew using the same rag on both? Yep.

I was pretty confused by the question, "did you see the big ass tree in the front?"

So, I got this book last week from a friend that about the 1000 places you should visit/see before you die. There's not a picture in the book. But, the 900+ pages of the paperback has led me to some interesting searches on Google Earth.

On that note, just a little ways from Windsor Castle, here's an option for lodging if you ever take a trip there.

From one side of the building:
