Here's the result of Danny's work on the ole pull type grader. It's a path thru our timber to the campground. He did pretty good for only having a couple hours experience. :cool:

Only way to get rid of corrugation. They do it to our road every so often.

Speaking of corrugation; I always looked at them as an irritation until I nearly lost control of my car. I was driving on a paved road, and the pavement ended at an exit, on a curve, which I took a bit too fast. At the end of the exit, and beginning of the curve, was a nice washboard section. When my front wheels hit the washboard, they began to bounce, and I bounced into the left side of the road before they ended and I recovered control. Talk about a surprise; took me a minute to recover my cool.

I also saw a combine that was being roaded too fast, and as he exited a bridge, hit a big patch of washboard. The thing ended upside down in the ditch on the opposite side of the road.

It was already a dirt path full of ruts and not quite that wide. What debris he gathered is buried in the crown.
