A sneaky Special Forces operation at Valhalla?

What the heck was Valhalla President Gordon Cucullu doing this morning? Some kind of Special Forces sneaky stuff in a brushpile again...

Gordon managed to sneak away right under the nose of a heavy equipment operator. Well, he was still taking precautions by hiding his face in the unlikely case of being spotted by chance after all:

Uh oh! A FIRE! Gordon didn't get caught though, the equipment operator is still blissfully unaware that a situation is developing right under his own wheels...

Actually it was just cold this morning, so a bonfire was in order. The conditions were perfect with no wind, rain in the forecast, Gordon champing at the bit to get rid of the big brush pile just beyond the garden fence, Jim at ready with his cat just in case of an emergency, and Valhalla's timber man Tony wanting to burn something *big* just for fun. So, we had a bonfire - and now have enough ash to make probably a thousand or more bars of soap from scratch!

Gordon, Jim, and Tony warming themselves with a bonfire
that resulted in buckfuls of ashes that will be used in the garden
and for soap making.

The Valhalla Project needs your help and support
Just getting a project like Valhalla up and running has required a significant investment in time, money, and labor. With roughly $500,000 already invested over the last two years into the Valhalla Project for property acquisition, feeding and housing Soldier participants, infrastructure and facility improvements, animal purchases and feed, tools and building supplies, forest and pasture management expenses, and much much more, resources are running thin. We need YOUR help to keep Valhalla functioning efficiently - while at the same time expanding vitally important programs to assist post-9/11 combat Soldiers and war zone civilian workers to transition back into the civilian world. 

The Valhalla Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity recognized by the IRS.
Nobody, including cadre or board members, draws a paycheck here, nor will they ever: we simply give everything we have to make Valhalla possible. 100% of your donation via Paypal will go directly to program expenses, period. If you'd prefer to instead directly donate four new tractor tire, a truckload of straw bales, a pallet of dimension lumber, or even a few dozen 10' sheets of forest green tin roofing, that would be absolutely wonderful - yet perhaps polking the "Donate" button above to contribute $10, $20, 
$50 or even more might be a little easier and more practical!
