1.  Replacement of our 1980 Ford Maintenance Truck.  You read that correctly...1980!!!              "The Truck" has served camp well for so long and requires daily "encouragement" to start......... and stay running!  A reliable camp truck is vital for maintaining the 40 acres of wooded property, servicing the many buildings, running a multitude of maintenance errands, hauling luggage, and so much more!  Please contact us if you know of a good used truck at a reasonable price or of a business that would actually donate a truck for camp use. 

The specific requirements needed are as follows:

  • Ford, Chevy, Dodge, or GMC (our mechanics skill set)
  • Full Size - 3/4 or 1 Ton - V6 or V8 - Non Diesel
