Recently a church asked if there were any projects that they
could help with around the camp. We made
a list of projects and they picked one, but there are still many other projects
on the list. Over the next few weeks I
plan to post some of the other projects that we would love to accomplish as the
funds are made available.
The process to mow and trim everything around camp takes over 20 hours. We are looking for some ways to reduce the amount of time that we spend mowing so that we can use that time for other profitable projects around the camp. The tractor on the top left did the majority of the mowing this past summer. The tractor was donated to us several years ago, and it is has been a huge blessing. It is not designed, however, for the difficult mowing we have around camp. The tractor on the bottom right is a sample of the type of tractor that we would like to buy. This particular one is a pre-owned 24 HP 4X4 diesel. This style of tractor is available with 60- or 72-inch mower. If we watch over the winter, we think we could purchase a nice tractor of this style for about $5,500.
