This view is from the end cap.In between my waxing job, I also played foreman over the workers laying the post on my BIL's land next door. Here are some photos of the fence line that we are laying. All property corner post are in and we started digging post holes for the fence posts. We were able to dig 32 post holes today and set three fence posts in concrete before we ran out of cement.
Here's one of the to be gated entrances.
We leave for Canton First Monday tomorrow and on our way out will get the Home greased at a truck lube stop down from us here in Lone Star. They are just about working only part time as their business has taken a down turn since US Steel has shut down their operation here in Lone Star.
Well I've managed to probably bore you to death but I'm real excited about the way my wax job turned out on the old home.
Until next time..............MtnAire Travlers

We just about completed the east side of the property and should start digging post holes for the fence posts. We now have located three of the four property markers and have them tagged. The marker on the Northeast corner is still hidden or missing. Will do more looking tomorrow.
Sandy and I then pulled vines and cleared brush near the motor home. We raked pine needles and pine cones near the travel trailer and will haul that off Thursday if the weather holds. Sandy will drive her brothers big tractor while I load the bucket. We have a compose pile here and will add these to it. After all this we hooked our Jeep up to one of the flat bed trailers and helped haul off some more trimmings to the burn pit. We have a pretty good pile now and will need to burn soon.
I still had some energy left and decided it was time to wash the motor home. Will start it's spring waxing and cleaning program tomorrow since our weather is so good. Thanks to my friend Mark who put me on the Klasse wax system and using the Porter Cable buffer. We should accomplish this task in three to four days. I need to also get on the roof and put sealant down on the seams and 303 all the plastic vents. I will never be able to match Mark's wax job and to borrow the phrase John used at Kerrville, "You can see stars in his paint job."
Until next time...... MtnAire Travlers
