The Wall

#33, Recon and Big Ed Build a Wall

Since it was the first Monday after the Presidential Inauguration and it fell on a Taco Monday ride, we decided to honor Trump.  So we built a wall!!

A crew of riders usually rides each Monday to a small restaurant/bar about 45 miles away through the desert to have tacos, drinks or whatever each rider likes for lunch.  Well this was the new President’s first official work day in office so we finished our ride to lunch and back, then got started on a symbolic wall build.  Actually it was a property line demarcation that got rid of a slippery slope and provided more footing and usable space.

But since it fell on the first Monday of Trump in office we dedicated it to him, lol.

Incredibly, we did not even get back from the ride until somewhere around 3pm.  We got started and quit only when it was necessary to use flashlights to read the tape measure. None of us could believe we had completed more than ¾ of a 65ft, two tier high wall.

Big Ed was the brains since he was the one with experience, so he did most of the leveling and placement, plus it was his bat, glove and ball, I mean leveling tools.  Recon provided the muscle moving a lot of heavy cinder blocks and shoveling dirt.  #33 filled in as the helper and did whatever he was told!

Now remember these two rode 95 miles in about 4 or 5 hours and then busted out most of this project!  Trump would have been proud!  If anyone needs a good construction crew (2 man) let me know and I can hook you up.  #33 may come along in a supervisory role…………………………...
