    A few pics from yesterday and today.

    Got three culverts set and started cutting the road.

    The jello crossing was still pumping pretty bad, so I ripped it down some and added a few sacks of cement to the road to help firm it up.

    Finished out the day setting the crown and cutting flow lines. Its a real pita to establish a crown when the center of the road is pumping.

    How did the cement work? I have one 10' by 40' section of my drive that just won't firm up.

    We shall see. I'll have to let the water soak in from below for a couple of days. The lime in the cement changes the plasticity of the clay and makes it more workable, but I didn't have the compact track loader out there, so I couldn't dig it out as deep as I wanted to. My tractor would have been stuck in no time.

    I decided to let the road sit and dry out for awhile. No sense ruining all of my work trying to get the job done in a hurry.

    Here are a few gravel and soil prep photos from a local job.

    This is a result of me coaxing a stuck quick attach with a pipe. The QA won that round...and yes...the hand is broken.

    That hand looks painful. I hope it heals quickly. Professional work as usual I see. I always look forward to pictures of your work.

    Thank you Chris.

    Nice easy Friday. I moved an RV pad to a new location, set a few rocks for a fire pit and then re-graded an area after the fence guys buried their skidsteer. Dan took care of brush hogging the 14 acre site.

    Ouch !!! Trust the hand is now healing well.
    I learnt my lesson doing a similar thing/very same result years ago removing a QR ripper pin from a dozer, now I try to grab a coffee first to gather my thoughts prior to engaging brute force.....doesn't necessarily help with a less painful outcome but at least I proceed in the knowledge of what might be coming my way........One of the mysteries of the world how QA's & QR's always jam at the most inopportune times/when you most need them & then habitually make anything around become Quick "Detachers" ???

    I'd like to say I learned my lesson, but judging by the amount of scars and broken bones I've collected over the years...I doubt it.

    Oh, how I resemble that remark! My misspent youth was filled with horses, dirt bikes & Peterbilts, combined with some less-than-stellar judgment ... Now, thanks to the grace of God and a huge ration of dumb luck, I'm old and cautious.

    Here's hoping your hand heals up fast and well!

    John, I think I can say I've just been lucky that I don't have a matching hand. I carry a piece of 2" diameter schedule 40 PVC pipe behind my seat to use as a cheater on the QAs. One end is broken and jagged from splitting while applying pressure. I need to get a 18" section of 2" galvanized pipe instead of the PVC, but I had the PVC and it is handy. How in the world did you break your hand?
