DCR was set to purchase, we had committed to donating $30,000 toward the purchase, winter was barreling towards and just days until closing DCR  mandated that we remove an old abandoned camp building that was near the top of the mountain down at the end of an old muddy, up hill cart.

 

Numerous attempts were made with heavy equipment to reach the top, but ultimately each got bogged down in the mud.

We quickly realized that we needed true horsepower so we called on Roy Nilson, farmer, logger and owner of two glorious draft horses.

The winter's defining first snow storm began as we finally filled the dumpster and reached for hot food and rest.

Roy is now struggling to keep his farm in western Mass.
