                                 Recent Adventures - October 2012

  Kevin honcho'ed the project to replace the Salt River Mailboxes.  It was quite the challenge
  getting everyone to agree with the new boxes and pay for them.  Chip and Gary helped Kevin
  pour the concrete pad and install the new boxes.
                                   These are our old mailboxes.  The doors were falling off and they were getting hard to open.

  Kevin had the old mailbox moved so he could form up for the pad.  This was done on Friday to minimize mail inconveniences.

                                     It was a bucket brigade to fill the protective poles so no one runs into the mailboxes.

                                                                       A ladder came in very handy for this part.

                                                          Then it was time for the flatwork.  This part went pretty well.

                                        Gary had his helper assist, which was handy since he was the only young one there.

             Kevin floated it and later it was backfilled around the front and back edge to make sure we had a smooth entry.

Chip and Kevin relax at the boxes, waiting for folks to pick up their keys, and to make sure no one drives on the pad prematurely.
