Fire in the hole!

Okay, so we spent the entirety of the day yesterday doing bridge surveys with Dr. Serfass so he can show us what we need to be looking for and how to conduct the surveys.

Okay, well I’m kinda just jumping into things, I guess I probably should start with a little background information to give y’all a feel for … Read More And so the adventure begins…
