Our work on our planned adventure park in Istria.
Our progress to date.
Up we go!
Charles and his team returned from Montenegro one week later, witnessed first hand the stringent tests we applied for the lifting platform, agreed that they would use it for their assembling of the platforms and started!
Unfortunately the weather was atrocious for the first two days with seemingly never ending rain but we all worked through it. Maybe the resulting mud for the next five days was even worse!
Little more can be said except for a huge thanks to Charles and his hard-working Montenegrin employees. All the wires and platforms were erected within the "spider's web" construction area within the week and we even got to put up the tower posts either end of the line of olives so that when Charles returns in December we can construct the huge towers and suspend the 113 metre zip line between them, stretched over the top of the olives!
So Nigel is hard at work cutting more oak planks for these platforms and Nevenko has been busy clearing all the land of machines, stored (for years) materials and levelling the "mud" so that, once the land dries, we can landscape the park, fence off all the areas for safety and security and, once we have insurance and "European standards Certificate" we can start to "use" our park!
We also have to erect our first fence around the 2 metre high platforms area where the steps up to the higher platforms are also found. We will use "the church of st. germany", our entrance gate constructed by our German friends, as part of this fence.
