A friend has a hatchback Prius, but I don't know about the manual transmission.

The first fence panel in this line of fence is finished. It's a way of working backward, and this was the most complicated because it tied into a corner and there was old fence support hardware pieces in place that are cast aluminum that completely surrounded the fence post. I had to disconnect hardware I put up last spring and slide them up the post and ended up with two slid up one position and one removed off the top (I used the two). Now the next door neighbor doesn't have to work around the wonky one that used to stick out from the bottom corner of the fence. Tomorrow I pick up the next set of pickets and cross members, put the more preservative on the pickets, and put them up. The pickets today were still wet from the preservative I painted on last night, but that isn't a problem, it isn't like wet paint. It'll be the same tomorrow. Today's panel was a foot shorter than the rest, the next two should be a straight shot down the line.

Once these are in place I can look into switching out how this part of the yard works. I'm thinking about putting up some cyclone fencing and a gate on this side of the garage. It won't happen until the boundary fence is finished. My neighbor offered cash to help cover the cost of lumber, thinking all of the fires this year would make lumber more expensive, but actually, the Forest Service and other agencies will be scrambling to harvest this burned timber (the bark might be singed and the leaves burned, but the wood will be good, it isn't like burned up match sticks). I think this will continue to be an affordable operation. Good nieghbors, though!
