Good Neighbors

Posted on

We love living out here. The people surrounding us are so friendly, helpful, and just a joy to have as neighbors and friends. After all, where can you easily put up a radio tower with loads of help, and neighbors who aren’t opposing your construction?

Bit by bit, my husband’s radio tower is taking shape. With more than a little help from our friends (and neighbors).

Drive over our yard to get to yours? No problem.

Help drop 12 feet of tower into a hole? Three people show up to help.

Borrow your truck to pick up concrete? Sure.

Dig the hole for you? Yep, did that in a past career and happy to help you.

This whole tower project had been nothing but a collaborative effort. Even down to neighbors lending hoses to get out that 400 feet from the house.

I really can’t remember that kind of help back when we lived in Columbia. Just another reason I like living in the “outback”, where friendship and sharing is the norm.

Almost have a tower. We need another county inspection followed by the erection of all the sections. We are slowly but surely getting to the goal.
