Obligatory grainy sunset shot, and the adventures continue.

a few items of interest along the shoreline. What went on here I wonder? Not much remains, but the outline of a structure is definite.

and this artifact, undisturbed for untold eons. Amazing.

Super secret north shore of Superior camp. ...well not really but a long ways from the beaten track. A nice hidey hole around the corner of this big ol rock.

Getting off the beach did pose a challenge. Imagine trying to drive up a pile of marbles.

Extra large 6 cyl block lying on its side... I couldn't find any identifying markings.

Maybe 8ft long.

But wait, there's more... From this end it appears that two crankshafts bolt together. Note the damage to rear of block. Hard to get an idea of scale from pics, this stuff is big.

Probably supposed to be more in there, perhaps individual cylinders/liners would bolt on/recess into each hole? Easy 10'' diameter maybe more.

From here a detour north to Geraldton through the woods for a visit.

A pulp mill and dust again. Eyes peeled for log trucks.

Another dandy camp on the way north. Note the beginnings of autumn colour in the trees.

One soggy camp and many miles later I find myself again on the shores of Lake Superior, the eastern edge this time.

The lake sings it song with feeling this evening.

Onward.

Back out west now. Plans include enhancing the woodpile as much as possible. I'm sure some tinkering will occur on Hilux and a couple projects involving friend's vehicles. Tradeschool in the new year.

But first,

Tamarack west of Thunder Bay.

The return journey was a mind-numbing highway thrash across one big ol' country. The time had come to make some miles.

So awesome, great shots buddy!
Thanks for taking us along.

That old engine is sweet. Love that big blocky crank!
Definitely individual heads and liners per hole, pretty standard on the big stuff. Heres one that didnt like the installed piston and liner and smashed it all to pieces.
