  1. i have 2-6' scaffolds if you want to use them. they can stack on top of each other to reach higher up if needed and are adjustable with a nice wide platform to stand on. 4 hours to you guys is like 4 days to me. i cannot help physically but i can try with tools.
     
  2. Ok Keith, I think I am going to start though on a week day. will let you know.

  4. Thanks for the offer, will let you know.
     

  5. OK Skip, I tried, without luck, to reach my contact with St Johns city officials to see if they have purchased the supplies yet but, he was out fo town. So , hoping to hear from him tomorrow. I am getting in the mood to get started.

    Damn Steve it's looking good. I'm sorry I got a bit scarce this last week or two. Been dealing with drama on many fronts... Do call me before you head back up again.

  11. You're all doing a great job. It looks fantastic!
     
  12. Thanks everyone for the nice words and encouragement! It really helps. I hope to get up there soon for another 'go' at it before the Barona Nostalgia drags June 14 and 15.

    also, I attended a car show in Alpine, Az last Saturday. Alpine is in a fairly remote part of Az at about 8,000. It is a half hour from my place in Apache county and I had the pleasure to meet member 'rainhater 1' there. It was a pleasure to meet with and speak to you. I will try to post some pics from this show along the Az hiway. Apine is along the Coronado trail, formerly hiway 666, it is now hwy 191. This road was built in the early 1920s and was another of the first auto roads built in Az. I have found a few sections of the old hiway here too and look forward to walking and exploring them.

    Around here I have found snake skins in abandoned vehicles, the snakes here are harmless. Do you guys sometimes come across nasty snakes in those old wrecks?
    Looks like fun though.

    I have come across them in the junk yard cars. Once I was under one, with my arm in that perfect unnatural angle where you can turn the wrench but better not drop it, and I saw one curled up about 3 feet from where I was.
    I stayed calm and got the part.
    My friend was amazed,,,,,,,,,,,,,I was freaking out inside.
     
  25. ohh man, my dad was just at that junk yard 2 months ago. he had some awesome motorcycles inside my dad said. and lots of cars

    A good day trip for you guys is the Clifton Morenci area. I used to find quite a bit of stuff out in that general direction.
