Saturday was the day to take the tent down in Richton, Mississippi. I went out early that morning and finished preparing the trailer to load up the tent and all the rest of the peripherals that go with it. Bro. Scott and Sis. Kim came and brought lunch and we enjoyed one last visit with them for the week.
Shortly before 1:00 PM folks began arriving and they were ready to go to work. First the side poles are removed and set aside.
Then the poles are taken down one at a time. The fixed pole on the end comes down first and then the other two poles are cranked down and lowered to the ground.
The tent pieces were folded as neatly as we have ever folded them and the tent was completely dry which is very important.
Kelly Jo put her head in one of the tent bags to look for a strap and Regan ambushed her and had a little fun. It was hilarious!!!
The whole job was completed in about an hour and we were ready to hit the road. I was so relieved to get the tent down dry before the storms came in. We appreciate Bro. Scott and his folks and even folks from other churches coming to help us. Taking the tent down and packing it up went very well.
Thanks for reading.
