The Trail Maintenance volunteers have been preparing for the new season, making all the equipment and tools ready go.
A couple of weeks ago Brad took the trailer to his farm to do some necessary repairs. He made the fender firm, the gate better, and installed a new electrical connection to replace the damaged one. In between all of this, his bison herd has been calving—seven so far!
This trailer, which was purchased many years ago second-hand, is now back in the garage and ready for many more maintenance trips.
This week, eleven volunteers came out to the garage:
- All the clippers were sharpened
- The mowers got an oil change
- Gas was mixed for the chainsaws and weed-eaters
- Gas tanks were filled
- Signage was cut
- Sign bags were restocked
- Weed-eaters were started
- Shelves and countertops were cleaned
And Oscar checked all the chainsaws and started them. One of these chainsaws is going home to the Oscar “hospital”.
Also, Gary began a hands-on introduction to trailer pulling with Jon S.
It was a very productive day. The eleven members of the maintenance gang made a pretty big job enjoyable. Let’s hear it for teamwork!
