That is the name of our fort. Don't ask me why, 'cause I don't know. I didn't name it; Zack did. I told him not to name it that, but he didn't listen to me.
I have no clue where that name came from, but Dad makes fun of it, so I do too. Dad insists that it should have been named Lanna's lair. (That was one of Dad's jokes. Do not expect to understand or think it funny.)
We even made a pine cone catapult.
Zack also claims to be the 'king' of Annasergle. I don't see how he can do that. You can't just proclaim yourself king. We didn't even vote. He even made himself a crown. Literally. A crown. Out of sheet metal. And a throne, from which he can watch his invisible kingdom.
The only difficulty with the fort is that we built it too strong. We can't capture it. The walls are too high. The door locks too well. The zipline is too awesome. The only way to conquer it is to scale the walls, but our siege ladder broke in the last skirmish. Bummer.
We also have another fort. Fortunately, Zack didn't offer to name it. We took quick action and christened it 'The Fort'. Nothing like calling it what it is.
'The Fort' is more properly built. Dad built it with us, so it isn't made out of junk like Annasergle. We went out and bought all of the materials. The Fort is up on poles, six feet high. It has a trap door in the bottom, three windows, a ramp on the front, a catwalk around the outside, and two secret doors. Well, they used to be secret. And for a couple of years it also had a tree in the roof. Literally. A tree fell on it. For a long time we couldn't figure out how to get it down without breaking either The Fort, Dad, or both. Eventually we figured out how to cut it so that the fort wouldn't be damaged, and we'd only have to risk Dad.
Let's see, what else do we have? Oh yeah, treebushes. On the edge of our land we have a line of treebushes. Yep, treebushes. Basically a row of bushes that grew really big, and now they are trees, but still look like bushes. Anyway, they make the perfect climbing trees, and they are just close enough together that we can climb from one tree, to the other tree, to the other tree, all the way down the line. It's lot's of fun. Sometimes we do races, and see who can make it to the Monkey Tree first. We have some interesting names for things, if you haven't noticed. We have some treebushes all over the land in fact, called different things. Here are the names: Jake's kingdom, Zack's kingdom, Ben's kingdom, and The Icecream Shop. I have no clue why. They just are.
We also have The Tunnels. On one of the borders of our land is a fence line. In a lot of places however, the fence is broken down, and trees, bushes, thorns, and other brush has taken its place. In some places the line of brush is over ten feet wide. We made a trail through the entire length of the fence, right through the center. It is completely camouflage, and no one even knows that it is there. (SHHH)
One corner of our land is covered in brush and crisscrossed with trails that we have made. We have appropriately named it The Other Tunnels. We even built walls around the border of it, but they are kind of broken down at the present.
And then finally, we have an outpost on the fence-line. No, the other fence-line. It isn't much, simply a platform suspended by 2x4's between two trees. Guess what we named it. Nothing. It doesn't have a name.
"Hey Zack, meet me at the outpost/fort/thingamajiggy/on the Somer's fence-line."
