Attached are some pics of a 1936 box car that a team of us from the Travis Manion Foundation will be turning into a bunk house for the Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in Bend, OR next week.

OK so it is a bit rough but a little putty n paint, some curtains on the windows....... :yahoo:

 

For added interest check out the Travis Manion Foundation site www.travismanion.org these are the people my son (aka Jarhead) and I will be working with on this project.

I think that boxcar really needs a Mystique rear dome light.

 

So are there now some additional foundation members around the PNW?

Aussie has to be telling others there about the fine varmint shooting range not too far away. He and The Jarhead may be the most local TMF members in this production, so they may be part of an entertainment committee.

 

AF would never be the type to take pics of stages of progress on their project. Like in one of his CDW27 How To's.

So the ten of us all met up in Redmond, OR at the airport. The fellas flew in from all over the country; Atlanta, Virginia, Philly, Ohio, New Mexico, Texas, SanDiego, etc.

 

We spent 5 days working on the Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch and what a place that is. Every horse has a story as does every kid that comes there.

 

Everyone had a great time working and playing. We even took time to go climb Smith Rock, and go to Cowboy Church which they hold on the ranch once a month. About 200 people from around the area attend for a meal and some preaching. On the last day we did some ride'n and played horse socker.
