Default Sons Eagle Scout project

. . . I took the day off fri and my son and I precut all of the pieces for his project. He is replacing a footbridge on a local schools nature trail. The old one was unusable. We had already removed it earlier and set our new support piers in the creek. . . So today we loaded the trucks at 7:00 and got to it. Went to start the generator and first pull the rope breaks. Urg. Went and got parts and fixed it and got to work. All the wood had to be walked about 75 yards in the woods. . . . Was so glad to get it done today. All that's left now is to paint it after the wood drys some. It spans 22' and the student can enjoy their trail again.

It's been a long process getting it done but I'm proud of him tackling a major project. My son has also committed to joining the Air Force after he graduates. This old man is tired after today.

Nice job!! Tell your son thanks for the commitment to the Air Force. I have a nephew who joined a few months ago. I wish I had joined the military after high school, but I didn't and now it's too late.
