ToCo Notes / Narrative:
The hitch went on without a hitch. The crew worked hard to complete the Duck Creek Range. Project Leader McBride promised a grand adventure if that was done. Alas, the work proved too much for 10 days and was not fully completed. However, because of the hard work the crew had a surprize day off and rejoiced in the wild for a bit longer. Darren Gruetze came for a site visit and provided supurb and amazing leadership and fruit-filled scones. Ticks were discovered and PL McBride made a special trip into town to file reports and make sure the crew had the equipment to be safe from disease.
