A few days ago I talked about the basketball court being built for FOB Apache. They finished the job and although the quality is not up to US standards, I am very impressed. After all, they poured 250+ yards of concrete one wheelbarrow at a time. I estimate that it took around 5000 wheelbarrow trips to do the job.
As you can imagine, the amount of work required took its toll on the equipment. By the time they finished, one of their mixers had broken and they were unable to repair it on site, I also counted 5 broken wheelbarrows and 2 broken shovels. It is likely they had more, but that is what I saw and captured in pictures
