FIXING THE RICKETY BRIDGE

---

To begin, my cell number is (406) 941 - 1126

Anyone wanting to help can call that number, or meet me by the rickety bridge at 11:30am Local Time Sunday the 22nd. ***The Store Run needs to be done immediately following the 11:40am meeting in order to get materials before the Store closes.*** Also we we will begin building on or before 2pm so 2pm is also a good time to help.

Current Resources: $40 + Dopp + Local Lumberyard & Hardware Store + Oni Shiro

Needs Include: 2 crowbars, 2 sawhorses, 2 clamps, 2 saws, 180 nails, 2 hammers, 10 4' planks of 2x4 ($26.68), 10 "small" wooden blocks for leveling purposes, 1 level

Builders: Sluj, Svartroxi Angismar

---

Step 0: Acquire tools and Materials. Visit Idaho Lumber and Hardware, open Sunday 9am to 1pm, at the corner of Airport Way and the 75.

$$$

Step 1: Pull bad planks from middle, to shore. *If 2/3 or more of the planks are missing, replace as you go and do not step on it unless firmly secured.

I'd be delighted to.

I'll arrive Saturday afternoon, ideally. Worst case scenario I will still arrive before noon Sunday.

I am sure that we can round up the tools needed. as far as money goes I will have funds for you. Just figure out what and how much you want/need, and let me know I will be there Sunday night worst case.

The preliminary requirements have been edited into the original post.

This reflects two people working from each side of the bridge: so they can pull failing planks on their way back to shore, then replace planks from the shoreline to the middle on both ends simultaneously, ensuring bridge integrity once they work towards the middle.

Adjustments to the plan will be made on site, after reviewing the bridge.

Sluj - Yeah, thats basically it, pulling bad boards and putting down good ones. I'll look foward to the help! At 6pm you may want to bring a lantern.

Svartroxi Angismar - Thanks! It would be appreciated.

Oni Shiro - Thanks for the phone message, looking forward to having supplies and help.

Edited topic post to include easy to follow steps.

Meeting time changed to 11:30am because we need to get to the hardware store before 1. This particular phase of the plan mostly concerns people providing tools and cash.

The actual building will commence as soon as we get back, and by or before the old 2pm meeting time (which is still a good time to show up and help).

This was awesome, I appreciated it a lot.
However for CW XVII I'd like to replace Rickety bridge completely. This is to make it safer. I know that at least one person was injured this year by kicking a loosened nail, and I personally watched a couple people slip on a plank and almost have a pool party.
If this is something I need to contact Jeff about directly, please help me get the information to do so.

Thanks, P
