Week Nine… Rain

We met Crew 2 out of Chino Valley on Monday. Today’s plan is to maintain our vehicles and tools. Tuesday’s plan is to build a fence. None of us had ever built a fence before and are not sure what to expect. We follow Crew 2 to Prescott National Forest where three open mine shafts lie. Crew 2 instructs us on proper fence building. Upon returning to Chino Valley Dillion, Alpha squad’s leader, informs us that their wont be any burning this week due to weather and/or unfavorable conditions. Wednesday we walk the fire line of the Groom Creek Rx burn and the Iron fire to ensure that all fire remains contained. Thursday we conducted an “Admin Day” which includes; vehicle maintenance, a team meeting, planning for future team events, community outreach, and a service learning outing to the Sharlot Hall Museum in Prescott. Due to the length and intensity of the last couple weeks (and the next two weeks to come) we were offered Friday off.
