So we’ve started dipping the giant pile of poles, one by one, two by two! At this stage we reckon on needing 450 poles and droppers at 10m spacing.
Three by three also possible.
Garikai is determined to catch that sun.
Part way through we also dipped the rolls of veld fence (Bonox fence) in bitumen to provide some protection to the bottom of the fence in contact (or buried) in the ground. No pictures of the operation due to yours truly being the ‘senior driver’ but we used the forklift attachment on the front loader to pick up each roll held on end. Then dipped it in the butumin and placed it on the stack shown below. Each roll is 100m and weighs approx. 90 kg.
Love the updates – will definitely visit the Eastern Highlands soon!!
Well done folks this is the new jewel in Troutbeck. Really proud of your hard work and vision . Over here we are fine getting darker earlier and gloomier miss the African sun badly.love you all Mbuya. Mbuya
