That’s two deep, at about 60 pounds a box, and a couple of dozen boxes. Do the math! Yikes! More strapped to the front — the trick about distributing the wieght of the load to make it up the mountaint that I learned with the huge red oak hauled up the mountain:
Books and research and all great things. They were rotting away, so I moved them off site, until now, as things are progressing well with the interior environment of the hermitage. Oh happy day!
To get these involved a trip of some hundreds of miles to the archive room of a distant church of a good priest friend. That was yesterday. I lived to tell the tale. Even with making the trip up the mountain in the middle of the night. Yikes! But they are all inside now. Now out of the boxes, but inside, so… great!
In this case, the wood of the books is like the wood of the cross. This makes up much of the “project” if you will, of the hermitage. So, this is significant.
