Off the Grid  Retirement at our remote log cabin in Colorado

The Newerest Member of the Family

No, I'm not talking about our beautiful new puppy boy Destin.

I'm talking about the new Polaris Ranger that we plan to use as our emergency exit strategy in winter.

It is called a UTV, which I think stands for Unidentified Type of Vehicle. We plan to put tracks on it along with a snow blade for winter. We'll do that in late October or early November. This summer, it will be fun to take fishing or site seeing on local trails, etc. Should also come in handy hauling wood and for other chores around the place.

I wanted to name it Kerr-mit after Chris Kerr. But, Lynne calls it Putt-Putt after Alfred M. Putt who invented the sound it makes. Putt-Putt seems like a wimpy name for a vehicle with 62 horsepower! But, I don't think Chris has 62 hp under his belt any more either. So, we'll need to look for another name.

Here is Destin, by the way:
