While the wagon is getting
repaired, Abe himself will also have to have some work done. The book he is holding is broken, with the other piece lying in the
back of the wagon. His color has faded, so he will get some
new paint, and there are a couple of spots that need to be patched
The crew of Matthews
Construction and David Bentley carefully loaded Abe onto a trailer and will
take him to get his makeover.
At the end of the day, the
wagon looks a little odd sitting on the ground with no wheels, but
it is upright and as level as it can be right now.
In the time that the tourism
bureau has owned the world's largest covered wagon, it has seen some
adventures, and this is just one more. For those who
appreciate the wagon, like Saul and the tourism bureau, they see
this as the opening of yet one more chapter in the history of the
wagon, a wrinkle in the works that just makes their beloved landmark
all the more interesting.
