Rural Mailbox Installation 101
Two years ago, when I bought the acreage,
there was a mailbox included in the deal.
Then winter happened.
To be more specific,
the blizzard of 2009 happened.
See the top of the backyard swing set?
We survived this,
but the mailbox did not.
Sorry to say,
no trace of it was ever seen again.
Two years later, I decided I'd replace it.
Hey - I've been busy - alright?
Our friendly rural post office was
very helpful and informative when it came
to this project.
Put 'er here.
Okay, how hard can this be?
Post - check,
brackets - check,
old mailbox used 4 months in Aztec, NM - check,
hardware store out of the number zero - check,
black permanent marker - check,
Now all we need is mail.
Write me : )
