My plan for crossing the cattle guard, is to wire down the sheet of plywood, walk the team across, one at a time, then use a single horse to pull the wagon across the cattle guard with a rope. Since the cattle guard is 6 feet wide, it would take two sheets of plywood to just drive them across.
The access road is about 10 miles long, during which I should climb almost 2000 feet in elevation, to about 9500 feet above sea level. After I set up camp, I plan on riding Bill up to a meadow above my beaver pond and let the other two amigos tag along. Since I can’t get the horses down to the pond, they’ll have to stay tied in the meadow while I fish,
Since cell phone and internet is nonexistent around here, the only way I’ll have to post this blog tomorrow, is if I find an unsecured Wifi on the way up. We’ll see!
