    I just want these wet days to lay off for a few so I can do some final packing and putting away.

    For those who stock their own salt, when do you typically take your first delivery?

    Mini excavators are cool.

    Was going to borrow or hire one but I figured we can dig it, who needs an excavator? Started around 10-10:30 and finished the trench by 3 including lunch and me stopping and leaving a few times. plus a few minutes reshoveling a few 3-4' areas that caved in.

    One more 3' section needs to be cleaned out that slid in right as we were leaving. so I figured we would just get it in the morning before pipe. Probably because we were working on both sides still. about 50-60 feet.

    60' at 40" deep? Half hour or less with a machine.

    Youngens always like to be heros and do it the tough way. Wait till ya hit 60, you will spend a half hour setting up a jack to ease your back.

    A few of us learn to work smarter before we have one foot in the door of the old folks home

    I've been working on township snow trucks for a month already, only can post so many pictures of rust. Starting on a Tri Axle Sterling this week.
