Tired of taking millions of trips up and down the slope to carry supplies, LD came up with the brilliant idea of finding a little wagon that we could load up with supplies and pull down our narrow pathway. I went online and found a couple of candidates at Home Depot and Lowe's. The one from Lowe's won out (it was bigger and it was assembled). It was just under $100, but it was one of the best $100 we ever spent. LD's little "burro" saved us a lot of time and exhaustion by carrying our tools and lumber up and down the slope.

We took showers and had dinner at the local Chinese buffet. I thought we were done for the day, but LD had other plans. She wanted to burn some of the brush that had been dumped on our property. Lucky for her (not for me), Sunday was a burn day. So we spent a couple of hours burning. It only put a small dent on the pile, but at least we managed to create some space between the brush pile and the fence. We were tired, but happy with all the progress we made.
It took us less than two hours Saturday morning to finish installing the rest of the pickets and the gate. It is far from perfect, but it is done! The dogs finally get to enjoy their yard, and so do we.
