The Final Hitch (Crew Four)

For our last hitch crew four ventured to the friendly town of Sand Springs, Montana. Recently rocked by uncontrolled wildfires, the Dutton’s family ranch of three generations was having a hard (and expensive) time replacing all of its barbed wire fencing. With the help (for the first couple of days) of volunteers from the big timber Evangelical Church, crew four succeeded in removing 6 miles of dilapidated fence, and replacing 5 miles of said fence. We learned a lot, not just about fencing, but about working together. The team from Big Timber had a lot of helpful advice and friendly conversation to share with us.

We met some awesome people, including the volunteers from Big Timber, the Dutton family, and a lovely couple named Larry and Chris. Once again, we drank milkshakes at a small town store, and shared laughter, memories and stories from back home. While it was a bittersweet goodbye, we almost all agree that although it was our last together, this was our most fun and meaningful hitch yet.
