The minutes of the BOD meetings since February have not been posted yet, or you would be able to read the cooperative efforts that are already going on, and some in the works. Local farming is making a come back.

I think the seed has been planted for future Alna days. Steve turned my free ride for residents into a great event. Just wish I had time to enjoy it. Hopefully next year..
I was glad to see the cooperative efforts of all the participants that were there yesterday, as well as Stewart for bringing his small fleet of fords over for display..

I had several visitors. Fred and Zack were there early. Leon stopped by. Then Fred again. Then contractor Jeff. And finally Dave B stopped by to give me his presidential approval. Bugs never left..

Dag, thanks for those links. Very nice to see other narrow minded folks doing the same as we do.

Bob,
I am making a ROW MOW yellow barricade. Something easily seen, easily moved, but will keep the honest folks out of the area. When we are completely done, there is a rather large piece of ledge that I left on the side..

We have a time line to keep. Two culverts to go and then things will look different very quickly.

Wayne, biggest expense for Big Joe to date was the compressor. A lot of other things we had or have made. Probably $1000 in steel. I would say we have no more than $6,000 in it now, with the vast majority of that figure specifically donated for the tamper.

Alain, don't worry about the mistakes. Some of us have spoken the language all our lives and still can't go without the mistakes. Thank you for sharing.

Hoping the contractor is able to deliver gravel for us this week. That will take care of the soft spot so Fred can get to the wood.
I plan on installing the entrance culvert. This will require removing a small tree we did not cut, a log it is growing out of, and another loose log in the ditch. Most of the boulders (saving 2 for road blocks) that are near there will be used to help fill in the area we need to. Hoping that after lunch I can start grading between locations 17 and 16.
I then want to move all the stones I found the were for the section house to one location and place the found steel items on top.

No permanent service lanes. We will have our usual private access points, and we should only use them when we have permission and absolutely necessary.
