Today was another long day.




Since the rig was down and waiting for parts, several of us walked over to the church. Mahogany panels are in the ceiling; stained glass windows represent the different forms of agriculture at the school.


A John Deere tractor is mounted on a pedestal near the laundry but the saw mill I remembered from two years ago was dismantled with only the saw blade and the tracks for moving the logs remaining.


Around noon we headed out to Galpon. The parts arrived and a valiant attempt was made to put the rig back together. After nearly an hour of effort, the part was loaded up and taken to Danli to a machine shop. It didn’t seem to take long for the part to be reconstructed there. Then the part had to be mounted back on the rig. It took much longer than the estimated 45 minutes and so we ended up closing up shop with the rig reassembled but no drilling.
