On Top of the World.......

Our good friends Gregg and Bonnie Gheyssen have been touring Alaska on their Harleys and have been giving me progress reports of the trip. It sounds like they are really having a ball and I sure wish we were with them. What a trip!! Here are a few pictures:
Here they are just entering the World Famous Alaska Highway at Dawson Creek, BC to Tok, AK. This was taken over a month ago.
Bonnie stops to photograph a Bear in the Yukon.......
Muskwa River Valley and the Rocky mountains.
Here they are recently all the way to Homer, the Halibut Capital of the World. This sure has been a trip they will remember forever. You guys travel safe on your way back home, we can't wait to hear all about it when we see you.

Meanwhile, we continue our building project and after a few long hard days, the plumbing, wiring and insulation are all done....just in the nick of time.  The Dry Wall installer came yesterday and got a good start. Today he should get it all hung.  Then hopefully, he'll get everything completed by the end of the week. Keep your fingers crossed.


Rollie and Gina install insulation non-stop.  Gina worked until 10:30pm with Rocky to get things ready for Dry Wall installation early the next morning.

A lot of Dry Wall to install...
Up goes the FIRST sheet.....
Soon there were several up and it was progressing nicely...lots more to do, but it's taking shape.

It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned, there is more to come...Sunday.

Thanks for including the pics of your friends in Alaska! What a trip but to do it on bikes has to be an awesome feeling....so freeing. Alaska is our dream trip. It will be a few more years but we'll get there Lord willing. :-)

Things are coming along nicely with the apartment. Pretty soon you all will be moving in. :-)

Take care!

Pop's we are having the time of our life building this apartment. Better tell mom to pick out some paint soon. Gina will be ready to paint just as soon as the dry wall is complete.

Once the drywall is on it begins to feel like HOME!!

Great pics of Alaska - I suppose a Harley can outrun a bear, but your friends were pretty close for that picture! It won't be long before you're sitting in a nice easy chair in your brand new apartment! I like that gizmo for holding up the drywall sheets for the roofing - that's a killer job!

Your home is coming along very nicely! Looks like you have a lot of help and some great tools!

Gotta have good strong backs & extra spongy buns for those loooooong motorcycle rides for sure. Have you thought to put a personal little time capsule somewhere in one of your walls. Progress is coming right along & it looks like things will be done before all you guys have beards down to your knees. Now, that would be a good thing......:))
