After brushing out the trail for most of the summer, the crew was very excited to hear that this hitch would be primarily spent building a turnpike over some very soggy areas of the trail.
Several old trees gave their lives for the cause, being de-limbed, skinned and bucked into the lengths needed. Then a quick lesson in joinery, and the turnpike began to take shape - timbers notched to fit and spiked together.
No project is complete, it seems, without hauling loads and loads of rock and dirt.... Our brand new dirt bags now are sporting many holes and clouds of dust emanate from the fabric.
Uncounted bucking cuts, three trees sacrificed, 100 feet of new turnpike
