Hytenor donated the money to build a toilet a couple years ago, it got installed at Mallard Lake last weekend.

The prefabbed facility was picked up from the Forest Service work center by one trailer and taken to the trailhead, then it was distributed one wall per trailer.

Volunteers dug a hole half way down and ran into 3 big rocks, then Forest Service showed up and dug a new hole.




Putting in the bolts that hold the corners together.


Getting ready to repair a wall that was damaged on the way in.




Holding the front wall in place while it gets attached.


Shimming before tightening the bolts.


Installing hurricane ties.


Installing windows.


Installing drip edges.


Installing wire to keep marmots out. We usually use a heavier wire, but this was brought by mistake. It will be replaced with heavier wire later.


Putting the right blade on.


Cutting the hole for the louvered vent.

Who took the celebratory first poopy? lol
Ya know. Sometimes I think to myself, "maybe i shouldn't post that on a public forum..." However, it never fails that to my delight, someone already has! :D

I mean, you have to "test" the product after assembly... ;)

I've helped put up 12 of these now, and it's always noted who the first one was. This time a helper from another club was asking if we were gonna have a lottery, I told him "no" it always comes down to who has to go first. I was only first on 1 out of 12.

I use to do commercial access control and security (cctv) a few years back and have done a lot of installs in new building construction. Needless to say, I've broken in many brand new toilets. It's always a great feeling knowing no one has ever sat on the seat before you :D

No, but the club had a sign made that has your names after "funded by". I forgot to take it up on the install. If you seriously object to having your name on it, I will have another one made. Maybe you would prefer your user name?
