It would be good if you guys would start talking and figure out what you want to do without me prodding you. Right? 😱 I'd like to figure out some event at Mike's place to work on the fort. We're still trying to find a trailer for the 4 30' poles. If you have an idea, that'd be keen.

George,
We have been looking. Mike has a lot of the equipment at his farm and is a builder with the experience, it is fairly certain we can do it. I too have a cdl, but not a trailer, which is the hard part. We will be looking for a trucking company after the New Year.

With the poles being free, we should be able to swing it.
Best, Marsh

Mike, that sounds great. If we can find a trailer... I wonder if we had all the likes there at once if we could just hire a o/o or something to bring them in one go?

I asked Mark on the kommando list how much was on the treasury, but he hasn't responded.

I think this will be an awesome project and really, a game changer, for Roman reenacting in the east coast.

                   use to this day.
                          With a 2200 year history of overcoming engineering 
                          problems great and small filling our sails, I know that
                          we can figure out how to get 4 ) 32’ , 8)18’ , and 16) 12’
                         phone poles, 80’ of 3/4” galvanized all thread , 80) 34”
                          galvanized nuts, and 80) 3/4” galvanized flat washers to
                         the farm. This material will be enough to construct a tower
                          that is 12’x 12’ with a decks at 12’ and 20’ above grade.
                         The railing material can be windfall combined with woven
                          wicker or wattle. The same can be said of the roof framing.
                         I will provide the metal roofing. We can camouflage the very 
                         modern looking steel with thatching, in and out.
                               I know we can do this and I’m rarin’ to go.
                               Thoughts and opinions?
                                      Mike

Really. I can't be the only one to post or do stuff. Grab the ball.
