A Day in the Mud

It was an interesting change from what has become a frequent pastime of building boardwalks everywhere.  A hardcore group of volunteers including Chris Coucill, Van Williams, Richard Meyer, Bob Shull, Clark Lennon and Ted Thomas finally got to work on a bridge at Roger's Refuge, which had slipped its footings and floated away.

Fortunately, it was also able to float back, with a little urging.  After quite a bit of dragging, prying, lifting and flipping, it was back in place and ready to face the next flood.  During the project, the group suffered 3 casualties: Clark, Van and Bob (pictured), in that order, slipped on a very slippery slope, and later had to be helped to their feet.

 Man down!

Man down!

 A good days work.
