The lights are still up, and the snow is still there. Just.
No, not Timo Mäkinen.
Here’s the finished car, it’s called Arsenal (someone made a mistake and called it “Arsenal Destroyer” on the official entry)
H got 2 first’s, I think 4 second’s, 1 third and 1 fourth. Each car raced four times, once in each lane, and the best sixteen went into the final. H got through to the top sixteen and came twelfth!

North up highway 9, hang left to Darrington and then into the deep dark forest until Tom Porters Cabin (1887) in Rockport for a Skagit rafting trip.
The crew were ready, as too was John, our superb river guide.
Sorry Jessica – John got first prize in the hat competition. Fay’s only managed a close second.
For added fun the flumps also joined our merry gang on the raft. Seen here with Dad: Pootle (striped hat) and Perkin (black hat).
As ever when it’s not chucking it down, the scenery in this part of the work is awe-inspiring.
And the Eagles are pretty impressive too.
Yup, today we got to see that Ewok has eyes!
Before and after pictures below. Can you tell which is which?
[Ask the audience hint: look at his paws]
[Phone a friend hint: smell the conditioner!]
[50:50 hint: it’s one of the two]
Fay tells me it’s money well spent, but how would you know?
And I don’t think she was talking about the stylish cravat that he returned from the stylist(yes STYLIST!) wearing around his newly conditioned neck.
Ewok. He’s an Ewok after all.
Wet, rainy and windy new years eve walk along the Wallace River to the picnic shelter at the lower Wallace Falls.
[You can see the snow line at about 1,500ft if you look closely]
We were nearly the only ones on the trail.
Ewok got very, very, wet. It took hours for him to dry out.
No wonder the moss here grows thick and fast.
