10/14/2014: Kelly Springfield Moved

With help from Beda Garman and Ernie Burton, we moved the Kelly Springfield from the Roots yard to BLW this evening. We wanted to get it out of the yard before the rains hit. Ernie also had Garman move the D-8 over to the Willits Redwood G & S facility. We used the D-8 winch to pull the roller onto the lowbed.

I think that there is just enough of the wood left as a pattern for Bruce Evans to work on the canopy.

There is much to inspect and dismantle, but the Kelly Springfield is unusually complete, a true diamond in the rough.

Attached are a few photos from today.
