Bridges on 16, 3, 12, and 17 will be getting the army corps of engineers treatment this year. They suck and need to unsuck.

...18 could be added to the list but not terribly urgent. It's only scary when there is snow/ice on it

1) learn something about bridge building
then, either
2a) understand wood requirements for the bridge(s) we want to build (which means a wood assessment has to take place)
or
2b) understand what we can do with the hardwood we have at Hyzer (also means a wood assessment has to take place)
3) solicit volunteers
4) assess tool requirements
5) get tools
6) execute

Bridge on 17 can be made of the two hemlocks that are there and can be felled into position.

Sunday will be too cold for these fingers so instead of playing maybe i'll come and scope out what we're working with.

large tree to be a major anchor for new bridge on 17: 1 Morgan and Tim: 0

...watch out near 17 tee! unless you see a large tree down... then you should be fine


anyone have a ~50'+ chain Morgan can borrow for come-a-long to pull tree?

I can do it with a 25 foot chain also. Maybe even less.
