get that road widened and leveled so you can get that 26 ton belly dump in there with rock....
Yessir!

So this means your not getting a hauling and dumping device? Which is understandable after your recent experience with the trailer manufacturers.
Yep, I've backed off that position
I pay $100 for the trucking service for a load of material
The trailer would cost $8K
That's 80 loads of gravel
In 80 loads, I would certainly have blown a tire or two or replaced the whole set. There would be other maintenance which I don't have to worry about.

I'll just pay the trucking fees

Worked all day at the farm again. I took loads of pictures, again, with no SD card.

Took lots of photos of the eclipse, over about a three hour span, which did not record.
I took photos of the steps I built for the mechanical room, which also aren't here. I took a few of the embankment I excavated out in preparation for these huge rocks (Boulders) I unearthed. They are mission
I took some cool pics of Sarge with the bucket filled with rocks. THose pics similarly did not record.
I had the errant pic or two of the doggies which are stored in never-never land
And I cleared a couple hundred more feet of the "Road" with Sarge. THose pics like everything else are gone.
Finally after ripping a cylinder and snapping it in two lifting, well, trying to lift a limestone Volkswagon, I took some really good shots of splintered steel which never actually recorded anywhere.
So I hope you can visualize all the proceedings because as sure as snot is slicker than a clinton lying to your face, you won't see anything here!

DHO!
Card comes out, pictures come off, card goes back...
At least switch the card out...

Sounds like an epic photo day, CARREP day, and no proof.
That sucks on the Sarge front also.

He knows the rules yet still posts, I believe a firing is in order.

I would suggest Ken but think he is still fired from last time or at least should be..... :popcorn:

Don,

it is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that YOUR FIRED!

reason:  failure to take at least 1 picture (with at least a cell phone) of said catastrophic failure of the mechanical device talked about above.

atonement:  provide at least 1 picture of the catastrophic mechanical failure.

I think that to right your wrong, you must reproduce all of the missing missions, and take photos with at least 2 picture taking machines.

You took that bait?

From those noisy boneheads?

Thought you were smarter than that

So, short hip pocket training session: You can't fire the guy who hired you! I own the friggin place!

What kinda of special dumb you been smokin?

Let me think, so when was the last time some Sergeant fired me, oh that's right...NEVER!

Be careful, you don't want to end up on my radar screen. I have a special sector in the search band for the likes of Ken and Shawn. You don't want to find your place in there...

Yeah, being independent contractors is terrible! As such for the record we can choose who we work for or not! :popcorn:

and on the rock slides you built....

That is clean washed rock.  No fines in it.  If you want compaction, you will have to buy a rock material that has fines in it.  If you keep using clean washed rock, then expect to spin out every time.  Washed rock is fine on flat surfaces, but not on inclines. 
I realize the error in my ways
I'll scrape the #57 onto the road and come over top of what remains with some dense grade.
Have it all done before it gets cold.

Good deal.  I do like that #57 rock.  Real pretty and clean.  We had to rock a sub station for the power company last year with it.  Turns out a top notch job. 

Down here, the go to rock is called sb2.  Ground up granite in sizes from 2" and under.  You get a lot of fines in it as well from the grinding process.  Sets up almost as good as concrete in the right applications.

Correct me if I'm wrong Ash but can't Don just leave the rock that is there for base and overlay it with say a #73 (I believe that has crushed limestone in it). This is how we built driveways back in Indiana....

Not going to say it can't be done, but it would be simpler to relocate the 57 rock and lay back down new rock. 

I would not recommend limestone anything.  In our area, under a lot of heavy traffic in a short time span, or light traffic in a long time span, it will come apart and turn to dust/mud.  Don't get me wrong, it works, and serves its purpose, but you will be replacing limestone after a short period.  Granite will give you a lot more life span.

Well I am not Ash, but he needs crusher fines mixed into the clean stuff. If he has elevation room for some minus stuff it should work in and stabilize the clean gravel. If not, scrape some off and start over.

It's ok Bob, Ash isn't even considered part time here. It's like he gets drunk every six months and stumbles in here or something..... :popcorn:

Easy full timer...

Ouch! That hurt, well not really. However, it is nice to se you stumble in here more often. BTW, where's those extra pics I was promised of the new casa?
