I completed the paperwork for the next Permit by Rule last night. All ready for a signature.

This permit is for the 3 culverts needed (locations 8, 9 & 10) the next 2 years, as well as laying track north to location 11.

I plan on mailing Monday.

I intend to be there and will bring a limited supply of period clothing for others, if they so wish. However, I do need to leave as soon as the track is lifted.
Making tracks as soon as we remove tracks.. I will have to check the pictures, maybe I can dress appropriately as well

And Rick needs to find the centerline between 218 and Trout Brook within the next month, the curve through the cut being the most important..the rest I think we can get just fine

As usual, Mike had a busy day at our museum!

Busy is good. And being among good friends for the day makes it that much better.

An appropriate amount of shovel leaning in that first picture.

Bill,
It wasn't in just the first picture. In fact, a saw horse was relocated for additional support. The shovels got heavy and were leaned on that...

The worst of the dam damage.. Steve Z is looking at the dam pictured in the second photo.





Jason called and covered the bases with the Maine Warden Service, eventually talking with a biologist I believe. We were given instructions on how to encourage the beavers to move on. He was told to just remove a little of the dam early in the morning so the water drops gradually. This will need to be repeated all summer when needed, until trapping season this fall or winter, when ever it is, when a trapper can come remove them. Jason was told that a big removal of a large part of the dam would result in a quick drop in the water, and the beavers would think the dam was weak and build it twice as strong the next time.
