As we got up from this torrential downpour, it was still gently raining so we all got into our rain gear for the fourth work day. One of our first tasks was to place our stringers on the two turnpikes.
We now were able to begin completing the 2nd turnpike with the culvert, but it was a lot of muddy grubby work we had to do to make room for the culvert and pack the turnpike with rocks followed by sandy dirt.
Liz and I are sawing through the lower stringer so the culvert can be installed. This is some tough, muddy, and grubby work that will never be seen when everything is done.
Now that we have finished all of the culvert and rock work it is now on to hauling the sandy dirt from our forest sand pit to the turnpikes. Here we have Ben resting, Kathy is digging more sandy dirt and Terry is hauling away the dirt to our nearby turnpikes.
I am using a bag for hauling the sandy dirt. Check out how deep the hole is and how many trips we had to take to fill up the two turnpikes.
Today it seems like we will never be able to haul enough dirt to finish up these two turnpikes, but by the end of the day it looks like we have finished up the first turnpike.
