Fort Goat Cleanup Day 1

It’s official, “Junk Pick Up / Tree Cutting Days” have commenced here at The Triple J, and we are starting with Fort Goat!! The goal is to get as many trees cut back as possible before the leaves come out, and to stake off the golf cart / walking trail through the woods.

In total there are 13 structures we are working on with this phase, these don’t include The Big House or the Kirtley Caretaker House.

Looking to the right of the structure from the south side…

Fort Goat (the old hog shed) is near the Grain Bins (5 total), and the large Implement Shed, right before you arrive at Jump Off Point, where you and your backwoods crew will offload from Jane’s Hay Ride onto the Backwoods Golf Cart Expedition!!

Allen rolling tires and working hard….

Ariel shot looking down on the south side…

The roof is still in excellent shape in most places….

These old beams are still dry and rigid, very sturdy indeed…

Allen pulling limbs….

South east corner of the building, and we may expand it because the concrete comes down this ways a fur piece…

This is the north west corner, it is in good shape…

The west side of Fort Goat, next to the Grain Bins…

The CEO hard at work…

Stihl makes a really good saw, and this one is on loan…we only had to buy fuel, oil, a tank, and a file…

Working on the east side of Fort Goat….

This tree split a little, it was right up next to the building…

We will be hauling a great big load to the dump soon!!

A great big tangled up mess, we are working through it carefully, don’t want to fall and get cut or step on a nail…

Allen is so respectful, polite, and professional…wish we had 20 more just like him but he is one of a kind!!

Yes, you will be able to purchase goat food for $1.00 per large plastic cup, feed the furry four legged sure footed goats and baby goats, and they can even ride with you down to Whip Creek!!

About 5 hours of hard work, two men and the right gear, a lot of progress was made…

We have a nice work bench area cleared off until the goats move in, and the old concrete floors are still in very usable condition. The roof of the middle section won’t be difficult to repair at all.

There are a few big trees that will require a tractor and cables or chains to keep them from falling on the building, and of course structural work is needed but not much!! Mr. Sam built it to last, and despite many years it certainly has!!!

Come on down to The Triple J Round Rock Ranch Frontier Adventure Excursion, bring along your dusty critter loving crew of fun loving backwoods explorers, we can’t wait to show you around, the goats will be moving in soon, and they love people, so call us, our switchboard is ready to take a message or transfer your call!!!! Have a great day, be sure to share our pages and posts, tell some friends, and please help us out with some volunteer work / internship opportunities!!!
