Phelix Reno-2 Projects

We got a lot of work done on Reno-1 and the participants agreed that it was mostly fun. We have a lot of unfinished things to do up there; most don't require any special skills, just enough time to do the job well. It would be good to have somebody coordinating the tasks so we have enough crew for each task, enough tools and supplies, and so on.

If you see a project that you like, please adopt it as yours. You will then be in charge of figuring out what is needed for your project, both in the way of personnel and materials and tools. Most stuff is already up there.

Please look Here and see if there are any projects you want to claim as your own. Feel free to put your name beside projects you want to claim


Here's a really nasty job. The batteries are over ten years old and were for a project that is no longer happening. Drain the acid out of the batteries into plastic pop bottles or such, bag the batteries in plastic garbage bags, and haul them and the pop bottles out to the car. There are two batteries, and they weigh 53 lbs each. Mother Nature will be grateful. Need to haul in some garbage bags, and some pop bottles. May want to use Roland's old frame pack for this instead of getting battery acid all over your new Arcteryx.

Moving the Privy

This is a task where a large crew can be used, and you mostly stand around telling potty jokes. First, try and find a good site for the new outhouse hole. This has to be somewhere not too far away from the Hut, and not in the swamp that surrounds the Hut, somewhere that digging is good. If we can find a good spot (unfortunately you need to dig to find how good the digging is), near the present spot, it should be possible to haul the outhouse over there intact. If the spot is too far away, it will be necessary to take the outhouse apart and put it back together in the new location. Finally you cover the old hole.

Trail and bridge around the lake

Probably Veenstra and Scott Nelson would want to take this one on.

Finish finishing the kitchen cupboards

Stain and varnish are up there. A dead shirt to be used for rags, would be good. Could use one person, all day.
