Mine Tour

I've been excavating an access trench into the back area of my crawlspace in order to install some new support pilings and beams. Here's the progress after 71 loads pulled out in a little green garden wagon - just over six tons of hard red clay. A 36" tall yellow rod is provided for scale.

Here's a comparison shot of the progress between the 36 load mark (June 19) and now (August 10). Every bit of has to be chopped loose with a pick before you can muck it out with a shovel. Needless to say, its pretty slow going.

Sometimes I get a visitor!
