|Greg hinders from Canyon, Texas
got up REAL early to start this ramp.
The survey was for a 49' ramp in a U shape
3 - 5'x5' modules
3 - 4'x8' modules
1 - 4'x4' module
1 - 6' starter module
What was built was
2 - 5'x5' modules
3 - 4'x8' modules
1 - 10' starter module
|Two of the students of the
DPT Class of 2018
Texas Tech University Health Science Center
removed the previous ramp support.
|Steps were left in place and the ramp was built onto the deck and around the steps.|
|These 11 students were Guns Up at 8 AM.
Temp: 56f with a westerly breeze at 8 to 10 MPH
These same smiles would be evident later.
Smiles of anticipation turned into smiles of relief.
|1 - 8' module in place with a 5'x5' being attached.
1 oak tree removed by Hatchet Man
|All the students were introduced into Module Building 101
The work would have been completed sooner if a coupule of
10' 2"x6" PT pine hadn't worked themselves into the pile.
|Greg Hinders took three students aside to build the 5'x5' modules.|
|Two 5'x5' modules were built as flats.|
|From the deck (facing South) out toward the ramp.|
|From the first flat toward the East, the 11 A.M. estimated completion was but a memory.
This picture was taken at 1:50 P.M.
|The starter only needed hand rails.|
|The behind-the-scenes photo op - a couple were on to the camera.|
|Sun & wind burnt, the efforts of the group were appreciated.
Little blood was shed on this build and
as with the start, all eleven completed the task.
|Christy suffers from back soreness from an automibile wreck.
Her husband, David, expects her to use the ramp to walk.
She refused an offer by Gary Johnson for medicinal marijuana.
|Excellent group with which to work.
