Making Map Boxes
Richard and Jim work on a map box.
As the polar vortex or whatever took a little detour into Connecticut, members of the Trails Committee retreated to a relatively warm workshop to build a slew of cedar map boxes. By warm, I mean with three space heaters going, I think the temps eventually got up to maybe 50°. It was a lot warmer than out on the trails, though! The map boxes will be attached to the trail kiosks around town. The hard part will be keeping them stocked with maps.
