Vacation at Wason Pond

Took a break from working on the South Wayne Community Bridge project and flew to Manchester, NH to work on a Timber Frame Guild project. Ten days of serious fun at Wason Pond in Chester NH. There  I got in on the action and some first hand experience helping experienced timber framers build a 25 foot Pratt Truss bridge with the community of Chester folks. Here are some pictures of the process.

If you would like more information just Google   and click on project report   for a day by day blog of the vacation fun we had.

Now it is back to work on South Wayne's bridge. Will be working on the rigging for the raising.

Puzzler - What equipment will be needed to raise the 32' Town Lattice South Wayne truss?
Tach Vocab - Gin Pole, Block and Tackle, Choker Sling, Worm Drive Winch, Bracing, Trunnels, Stakes

    Was good working with you. Hoping our paths cross again.
