The lumber was due to arrive at mid- morning
And it did, so I had to get my bridge working tools together and join my brother at the bridge just a little after ten AM. It was nice that it was a little on the overcast type of day, as we had some hard work to do. The sun cooperated until late afternoon when it warmed us up a little, but not bad.
Below is our work area, just as we got started this morning. The air compressor is to run an impact wrench which really helped make the job easier as each board has four old rusted, half inch diameter bolts that had to be removed and reused in the new boards.
We got the bolts back in the boards and all the boards down, but we didn’t get the washes and nuts back on that hold each board down. My brother said he’d work on that tomorrow.
We accomplished the worse part of the job today, which is good as it was one of the things I needed to get out of the way to get on with a little trip I’m planning to get off to soon.
One of the other things I need to get done is my dentist putting on a new crown, which is scheduled to happen tomorrow. A little shopping and packing and I should be ready to get on the road to adventure.
Had a good day.
