Knew a guy who built fence like that Mader. His kids were his laborers and if they didn’t have the white tops at the same height and in a perfectly straight line, they had to pull them out and reset them. Beautiful fence when finished though!!

Dad was fairly particular but not that bad. He would always say, “the cows won’t complain!”

This fence is on the busiest secondary road in the area...it needs to be perfect.

Finished fence 2023 this morning by hanging 3 gates.  The last couple months made up for the first 5 months. Its warm enough i could fence more... but the mdt job starts Monday. I was hoping for a week off for projects but that wont happen. 

Bought a jeep with a blown motor for 500 bucks to put my good motor bad body engine in. My 10 year old was excited to drive as i pulled the jeep to the garage. 

Post driver is tucked away in the dirty shop/shed/laboratory.  Needs a few things but less than last year.

That house is a mile as the crow flies and a hour away.

Time for model 3.0 if you're going to work in that kind of rock often. And another arm with a drill and a bit that stands up to the hardness of the rock.

That is a 10,000 foot pound altec auger drive and I do use it on my 3 inch bit as needed

Little water gap on a stream that is all or nothing hopefully biult to withstand the typical 50 year and less flood.

No pictures because the non profit safe home needs privacy but fencing without a driver this week cause it would not fit makes me sure appreciate it more. Man my body hurts... should have modified the vinyl fence to make it fit. On the other hand donating that scale of project feels good too. 

In other news I see a second mini skid in my future... one for the job one for home.
