The fence goes up!
I receive an email recently from Rusty. He’s trying to be patient while waiting for the new fence for Timber that Home Depot promised to give and install. What’s the hold up? Rain! The ground is too muddy to put up the fence posts.
More recently I receive another email from Rusty with great news.
Home Depot keeps its promise!
The Home Depot Fence Team arrives and unloads the materials. The fencing is five feet high and heavy gauge. That should keep Timber safe at home, never to become lost again!
This truck bed holds the posts, bags of cement, and water and snacks for the Home Dept Fence Team.
To acknowledge the people who did the work, I quote from Rusty’s email:
“Timber loves being able to run free. This is all who worked at the start and finish: September 16th, 2013, John Johnson (Crew Chief), Marcus, Jason, Max, Mark, Laura and Mr. n’ Mrs. Gibbs. The finish crew, October 3rd, 2013, is Marcus, Max, Jason and me . . . “
I’d also like to express appreciation to Sid Durham for starting the fence project and to all my readers who gave toward the purchase of fencing materials. If you hadn’t done so, Home Depot might not have been inspired to take on the fence project. Thank you. Your good generated more good!
Monday, October 7
I can’t take any more duck hunting outside our door! Plus the mornings are cold! I pack us up and we leave our boondock at Duncan Reservoir near Canby in northern California.
I’ll write about it in the next post. I’m sorry I couldn’t get together the energy to write last night. After about 200 miles on the road, from Canby, California to Carson City, Nevada, I was road weary. This is not my usual style of vagabonding.
I don’t know what it is about Reno.
Maybe it’s the people rushing to make their flights. I do not like driving across that town. In fact, I’d rather drive across Portland in torrential rain than Reno in full sun. Well, I thank God we made it!
Of course, the crew, having slept all day in the moving PTV, needed a few long walks in order to settle down for the night.
We’re camped at Washoe Lake State Park!
More about Washoe Lake State Park with photos in the next post. Cold temperatures are predicted for the Carson City area, so we aren’t lingering here, even though I like this quiet, pretty campground.
The crew and I continue our search for warmth and sunshine!
