Just a lot of watching hundreds of cubic yards of earth being moved. Almost up to the top now. Another day or two perhaps till there is a road across the canyon. This is one job I could never do by myself. Can't even imagine how many wheel barrow loads this would be. 66,80,55,0,W
Shot down to Archies for a new set of tires. My last set made it days away from 2 years and just under 40,000 miles. Not so much the dirt roads out here, but the crappy highways that wear them down. Not a single flat tire nor did I ever add air to these guys - and they even found a nail in one during the switch. Worth the price to avoid complications during all my travels. On top of that, this set cost me $50 dollars less than the last set I bought in Phoenix on November 8, 2008.
