San Antonio Missions

White Crew has spent the last few weeks down on San Antonio working at the missions with the notorious Eddie Ramon. We cleaned out acequias (little waterways,) removing trash and unwanted vegetation. We limbed up some trees around the Missions’ pathways–making them more inviting for guests (and ran from some wasps and snakes in the process.) The whole project was more of a sampler platter of all the things we do at TXCC–a little bit of this, a dash of that–whatever tickled Eddie’s fancy. The only common threads throughout the project were the unrelenting heat and Eddie’s implacable and despotic resolve to work us like AmeriCorps members deserve. Honestly, the whole thing was a blast, and we can’t wait to come back and get our grind on.

Until next time friends,

Eric Fritz –  White Crew (Best Crew)

Bastrop Rock Move

June 5 – June 9, 2017
The Coastal Crew traveled from Houston to help the Bastrop Crew construct a stepping stone bridge through a creek that one of the great Bastrop trails runs through. It was hot that week, but the tall pines that survived the fire of 2011 helped create shade and shelter. The first day was full of training on how to use the crank systems to move rocks. Some of the cranks can move up to 2 tons so you can imagine the size rocks the Coastal and Bastrop Crew were moving. The rest of the week was hard work sculpting
the earth to their benefit, and achieving their goal. Check out the video to see how it was done by both awesome crews.
