Due to the increased traffic up AF Canyon, the sign install actually began the night before when a group of us ran the truck and trailer up to the install area to secure a spot. After some maneuvering we managed to get a spot near the install location, set out some cones for safety, then headed home for the night.
The next morning the group met up with the Forest Service at the install location. After going over some safety information, a few of us started disassembling the sign bracing, while the rest assisted the Forest Service with digging and leveling the hole being dug. Since the location is right off the road we were thankfully able to utilize a mini-ex to dig the majority of the hole rather than by hand.
After getting the pit finished and leveled, we carried the sign from the trailer over to the pit, set it in place and stood it up. After which we spent a good amount of time back-filling, tamping, and leveling the sign.
