We work a remote trap line in the far north west corner of BC Canada. For long periods of the year it is just the two of us, 2 dogs, a cat and two chickens. This is how we live.
WE TAKE ORDERS FOR FURS DONE FOR TAXIDERMY AND RUGS....

Taking Water Pump Apart, Water, Bunny Boots
Bryan tackled the leaky water pump. He figures he has enough parts. While doing that he also wants to clean out the well. Monday is suppose to warm up so that will be the day. Til then he collected ice and went and filled up all the water containers. He is off tomorrow to check Walkers Valley line with Ishi. He'll push the trail further and put out more boxes and be back Dec 31 in the morning.
It's a Japanese log chisel wired onto a sturdy stick for opening a ice hole and the sieve is to get the slush out of the hole.
These are warm, warm boots made in Canada. There is a big layer of air around the foot and lots of insulation underneath. We have had them for 4 years and have never used them much. For trail building we never could keep the snow from going into the top. Bryan is going to try duct tape tomorrow.
