This week was a huge work week on the boardwalk.Two crews worked nearly 4 hours Wednesday night, one in the cage building sections and the other installing sections in the bog. Both sessions brought together volunteers from Bowman community and Scouts helping Terrance Smith with this Eagle Scout project.
Wednesday night crews, 9/22/10
We marveled at the lovely sunset and suddenly the moonrise. A full moon on Equinox came up just as the sun went down. How special is that!?
Saturday, 9/25/10, was a long day. Crews started at 9 in the morning and called it a day about 5 or thereabouts. We finished building the last 3 sections needed to take Terrance's leg to the south turn. Once the straight path nears the turn, we can put in the right angles to make the final sections meet smoothly.
Then Terrance's crew of family and friends, plus a few Bowman community volunteers, moved the sections down the hill. Thanks again to Dave Owmby at Tag-Along-Trailers for supplying the right trailer for the job.
Sections also were loaded onto a Lowe's lumber cart that could be wheeled down the boardwalk to the active installation.
The crew installing sections cleared brush, knocked down high spots and connected the sections in a straight line along a string stretched toward the ultimate end.
