Coq au Vin

History Repeats itself
Day 2 (2/18/12)
The Coq au vin is in the oven and there is an hour to kill. What a perfect time to hit the trail for a little ReCreation. It was a great day to get out and do some building. To our surprise we were not he first people out building. Less than a mile down the trail we came across a little cairn built by others and it was not the last sign of others building. This really makes me happy. After four years other people are starting to get into it. Since there was a nice pile of stones by the first others build we decided to build a couple of our own. After we got a mile out we determined to go a little further and check on tripod build. I guess we forgot that was another mile out. Remember we have coq au vin in the oven. Well the chicken can wait. When we got to Tripod, not only was it standing but it had been added to. I did a few things to it while Eileen did a new build of her own. She called it a Farnsworthesque build because it was elevated on spikes, a common device used by our friend Matt in his builds. Somebody else had built by Tripod which I added a couple of stones to. I don’t have a problem with people adding to mine, in fact I promote it so I hope nobody is offended by my adding to theirs. Somebody had gone through during the winter and cut down all the telephone poles so the K build was destroyed. Dangler was still up, making her the second oldest build next to tripod, but in need of repair. Perhaps we will get to it tomorrow. Two hours have passed and we are greeted at the door by the wonderful smell of Coq au vin cooking in the oven. Yes, it is perhaps a little over cooked, it is hard to get the chicken out without it falling off the bone, but it is delicious. Life is good.
