Thankfully, eight volunteers showed up to install the kiosk at Ten Gallon Trailhead, and we needed everybody. The posts are very heavy, the levelling is difficult once everything is connected, and there were 12 bags of cement to mix and pour. Thanks to Tony Mills, Rick Cory, Payton Birch, and Jim Wrona. A special thanks to Steve Diaz, David Court, and Mike Hlynsky who seemed to have additional construction knowledge and helped us avoid technical mistakes. Mike is an electrician who is newish to town and is the owner of Apollo Electric Co. (530-643-0217)—my “plug”, not his (and my pun).
Stay tuned; there are two more kiosks to install before Jan. 1.
