Plow Truck at Work!

In November we reported that thanks to supporters like you we were able to purchase a snowplow equipped F-250 truck for the Camp just before the winter snows came to the north.

Recently our friend who arranged the purchase and a few minor repairs – truck needed some brake work and new oil pan – sent us pictures of the snowplow at work. He reports that with tire chains and a load of sand in the back for traction the vehicle does great, even on the hills.

Now the Unist’ot’en don’t ever have to worry about getting snowed in or volunteers not getting through except by snowmobile relay. Freda and Toghestiy have learned how to operate the plow and the manual transmission and are really enjoying it.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the fundraising campaign. Enjoy these pictures of seeing your efforts and contributions at work!
