Wheel installation and a little modification to the towbar and tow point. Touch up painting. And after lunch I would luke to walk the mountain again, with a tape measure, to get accurate measurements of the locations. We are doing this in feet from MP 7, and will probably start there to verify the wheel measurements from a couple years ago.

A little birdie just told me that the culverts are at Sheepscot.

Two longer ones for the first washout, and then there is another washout with similar flow further North we need the second ones for. There was a savings in shipping both locations together.

Forgot to mention, Tuesday the culverts are expected to arrive. Late morning to mid-day. I probably won't know an exact time until that morning.

There are tie downs on the 4 corners. They are in some of the pictures as a loop.

And Wednesday, Mark plans to paint the outside of the car with a second coat.

Hoping Saturday we can slide some completed wheels under it and call it done.

Details for anything other than the planned work for this year have yet to be worked out. We have 3 big projects up there where funds will determine how much and how fast we get it done. One I can speak of is the slide. But even the planned details of that are not in stone. I was offered the use of a piece of equipment today that will help that project and several others along, but am unsure if it would be practical to use. I have got to do some thinking on it, and discuss with the board what to do.

The other two projects we are still working on details on, and won't discuss them here yet. I met today with a contractor for both projects, and that is when I was offered the equipment.

And I try to plan work for when we will have bodies around, like work weekends, because I like seeing everyone busy, and everyone that comes likes to help.

We did it. It took all day, several drill bits, some rotating help and 3 trips to the hardware store by Fred and one by Leon, but the deck is done.

Here is the first piece. Shows the bend. No relief cuts.


And here is the finished decking.
