At 8:00 am Saturday, September 28, 2013, Krister Raasoch and John Hudachek opened the gate at the Friends of Pisgah property off Route 63 in Chesterfield.  Within the hour Chad and Jack Pepou and Kim Nilsen arrived with our new composting latrine on a trailer.

This summer John Herrick and his John Deere tractor have been hard at work constructing a road up to the future site of our lean-to and composting latrine.  We decided the trailer would not make it up the road, but the truck would make it 3/4 of the way up to the lean-to site.  So we loaded the truck bed 3 times, driving it as far as we thought we could before getting stuck, then hand carrying the material the rest of the way.

Krister, Kim and John dug four holes for the supporting 4x4's while Jack and Chad drove back to the trailer for the remaining tools and materials.  Between 11:00 and 12:00 John and Krister meet their wives and drove to the Visitor's Center for FOP's Annual Picnic.

Seeing uneaten hamburgers, hot dogs and sweet corn at the conclusion of the picnic John and Krister brought lunch back to the Dort property for Kim, Chad and Jack.  They appeared to enjoy every bite.

The crew then finished the trim, took some pictures and made measurements for constructing the stairs off site.  They then carried the tools and unused lumber to the truck for the trip down to the trailer.

We finished about 3:30.  It was a pleasure working with Chad and Jack.
