Our fence is pig wire and the green metal post.

If you use these post borrow, beg or rent a heavy post pounder not the small ones. We are all decomposed granite and rock the little one did nothing rented a big one and while it is heavy the posts went in nicely.

That is great news!
Have use of a hardy post pounder from the bailey house fence endeavor. The ground here seems actual dirt, with grass and weeds and a low area that channels runoff from the rain.
I dont know whats been offered, Ang so I dont know what more us needed.
Im very appreciative that material has been donated, to whomever is responsible.

As soon as I talk to the neighbor about utilizing the existing fence for the back of the area I suppose we can form a game plan and date. :)

Jack the Dog has offered some materials including a gate and hardware. I will go by and see what is there this weekend and see if it is something we can use.
There is some sort of major event by you this weekend that will have the roads shut down and people everywhere. Can we plan for Saturday August 6th & Sunday 7th?
That will give us time to get the materials and some people to help.

I think the next weekend is doable. :)

I want to thank everyone here and who have messaged me in private for the offers of help and encouragement.

Hello everyone.

Steve, our fearless leader, was here this afternoon going over the space and we determined what would be needed in terms of material.

9 AM Saturday, the 6th and then Sunday, the 7th will be determined by what we accomplish on Saturday.

If you have a pick, shovel, gloves please bring them. I have use of a post pounder and possibly a post hole digger.

It would be helpful to have a head count so I have enough refreshments (and advil) for everyone. :)

Please PM me and Ill provide the address.

And THANK YOU!

Sorry, a post pounder rules me out. I have to wear ear plugs for the juicer. Thank you to everyone else who is helping.

Hey everyone, Steve has acquired most of the materials for the fence. Im getting a couple of gates from my house in Bailey to see if we can make one work.

No one has responded to my requests for PMs for a head count for this Saturday and Sunday.

No one.


Is next weekend better?

Its me and Steve at this point. I have two maybes for later in the day Saturday only.

Any feedback or suggestions are appreciated. Thank you.

I'm sorry to hear you've not had ANY response. I wish I could help. I have health issues and I'm not very big so I would be pretty useless.
It looks like the weekend could be rainy which could help soften up the ground.

Thank you. Im no pillar of strength myself. Sciatica, bad knees and two compressed discs in my neck.
One volunteer has no rotator cuffs in shoulders.

Thats why Im seeking help. Im willing to work, just know I cant do it myself. I wasnt kidding about the advil....

I know you're family has had its share of health issues. Golly Jeepers!
I really don't want to burden anyone with what I'm dealing with except I never know from one day to the next if I'm not too exhausted to drive. I'm in Pine Jct. How far away are you?
