Also, stay tuned for more new content via the website. I have been very busy the last few weeks but will be starting a new series coming soon. If anyone has any other content for the website, please feel free to email me and we will make sure it gets on here.

Trailer Workday Success

Thanks for all who came out to the trailer workday. We had an interesting time clearing the land around the repeater and James sprayed weed killer to keep the vegetation at bay. We stumbled across a bee’s nest or two but had a blast. We also discussed some mast ideas and made some measurements for materials for the trailer. We are looking into an adhesive that James has found to put up the carpet. You will be seeing more information about this and the ideas we came up with in the near future.

Also stay tuned for a report on the blackberry festival. Have a great weekend!
