Rebuilding the road



After a decade of washout Neil Schaffer and his son Forest, of Schaffer Excavating in Woodstock, rebuilt our private road. The section below, which is only part of the road, is quite steep and leads up a hill and around to the cabin. We have a Jeep, but visitors with lesser vehicles were finding the ride up a bit rough. Neil brought in four triaxle dump truck loads of #4 stone to build the road up and create proper drainage.

Before:
Also before. Notice the bedrock showing on the left side. That means what road was there had washed away.

After:

The dump truck driver is Tommy Morgan. A hearty fellow who can turn that thing around in the woods.
