Day one started with pre-hitch and planning a crew backpacking trip for the upcoming break. On day two we took a trip to visit the Owens Peak crew to help them put in check dams on a massive hill climb.
Days three through five were spent on an incursion we had dubbed “the Half Moon”. We worked super hard, and by the time the Owens Peak crew came to help us restore on day six, we decided that their time would be better spent helping us with another incursion we lovingly dubbed “the Behemoth” a.k.a. “the incursion that never ends”. The Behemoth is an incursion we started to work on during hitch ten. When we started the incursion, we were under the impression that it was a very small hill climb, but when viewed from different vantage point, the small hill climb turned into an undulating 0.67 mile incursion. Needless to say, the Owens crew gave us a much needed hand, and helped us put a large dent in the Behemoth.
Day seven was spent finishing both “the Half Moon” and “the Behemoth” incursions. Steve Gomez came out to restore with us, and it was such a relief to be done with both of the incursions. We didn’t it know at the time, but day seven turned out to be our last day of restoration in the Rands.
On day eight we traveled up to visit Keith Axelson. His ranch was beautiful and we went on a wonderful adventure hike. Day nine was spent at the Kern River Spring Festival where we listened to music, babysat Carrie Wood’s tortoise Clack, held snakes, and talked to people about our work with the SCA.
