Day 24

A travel blog entry by camosami

It was a day full of activities. It began with sandbag time. A bunch of Grid 51 people helped move sandbags from outside the park, where they were filled, to our grid. We'll use them to lay on the tops of the walls and balks to anchor them for the winter. I got to take a spin in the bulldozer that carried the sandbags. Two hours of that and then back to the grid.

The day presented a nice balance in terms of work. Apart from OCHRE, I had several assignments and was involved in the analysis and execution of the assignments. First, I articulated two parts (a stone part and mudbrick part) of a wall. It was that ugly wall that I dislike.
