Tuesday, October 4th 2011 - Book 131 - It might seem like I was just up there drinking beer, listening to the radio, and drinking beer, but I did find some time to do some work for Bob. This book is my proof of that. In the same way picking up trash is the collection of events past, I spend my last moments in The Spruce Scenes remembering the last few days, the beer, the radio, setting up in front of the Bookbinder Vug, coming up with good reasons to steal Rick's beer, producing beautiful books from Bob's explosives boxes, and enjoying the rare opportunity to live a few days high in the clouds, just below the snowline in one of my favorite wild settings ever. And I took out the trash there!

At the NW Book Festival 2015, I traded this book for "The Big Eye of Summer," a true life adventure story being peddled by a theme of youths calling themselves, "Papyngay Press." I'm sure no one cares but me, but this was my last Spruce Scenes book. My last weekend on Spruce making books will always hold a special place in my story and I hope the Papyngayists take good care of it. I'm looking forward to reading theirs, but I have to finish The Great Game first. It's also a true life adventure story.
