This is his latest project. We are taking out the fence and Retired Mountain Man has pulled all of the barbed wire off, taken down what rails were still in place and cutting the wire in several locations where we had a gate or intended to have a gate.
The braces with the wire attached were the most difficult. They all had to be cut and taken apart. There is one on each side of a gate and also on each side of a corner. Retired Mountain Man knew how to build a fence and he built it well.
Our neighbor, Mike is going to help us take out the posts. The plan is to stack them and burn them.
I wish I had been able to find a good photo of the fence in the summer when it was still in good shape, but no luck.
