Purple crew traveled to Lyndon B. Johnson National Park for a 10 day hitch. Followed by a four day break, they headed straight back for another 5 days. Their task was to take down an old fence in an area that the locals call: The Back 40. Though rain caused for turbulence and led the eight workers to act as part-time landscapers at LBJ’s Boyhood Home, they accomplished a great amount of work and got to tour the house! By the end of the 15 days, the team had dismantled the old fence, used an auger to drill more than 20 holes, tamped logs into 10 holes, and improved the 36th president’s childhood home yard.
