The Fort


The photo above popped up in my memories this week from our first home in the state of Washington. Our kids built this fort in our back yard in the early 90’s.

Do any of you watch the show on History Channel called ‘Alone’?

“The HISTORY Channel’s hit survival series “Alone” is back like never before and taking place in the most dangerous location yet. In Season 8, 10 contestants fight to survive in the Canadian wilderness on the shores of Chilko Lake, British Columbia.”

I’m always impressed with the structures the contestants are able to build with just an ax. They have to cut the trees down all alone…

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. What a cute photo this is. I am not familiar with that show. When I was a kid, we would walk to a nearby appliance store and ask for the boxes that refrigerators came in and make forts with them!

  2. Building forts was so much fun and I’ve built a lot of them. 🙂
    Don ‘t have TV so no, don ‘t watch Alone, but I’ve heard of it.

  3. Every child loves a fort. Our grands take the couch cushions and throws to create theirs in our living room. I’ve not heard of that show, but I know of the area it’s filmed in.
