They worked on that for about a week. It didn't take long. The highway department came to inspect it and they said that we needed a four foot concrete apron connected to the road. So we waited and waited. As we waited we had a week of rain. Lots of rain and our poor driveway looked like this.
We just watched the rivers of water and gravel flow back down the hill. It made us start to second guess this whole project. So we will have to watch and see how it erodes in the future. Our other option would be to black top it and that gets expensive.
The concrete eventually got poured and then they came back and fixed and finished the driveway. So now in mid September we can finally say that our new driveway is open for business.
We have to say that it turned out great. This is a project that Lisa's mom and dad were thinking about for years and never quite got to it. The paperwork process is what takes so long. As an added bonus, the power company has been out clearing the brush under our power lines so that they can energize our lines.
When Lisa's father purchased this property, he had power lines run back into it but never had the lines energized because there was nothing back there. So it has made that part easier for us as we go forth to build our garage. We don't know if he had ever planned on building something back there but we feel very lucky that he gave this to us and in a way it will kind of be his legacy so that we can still enjoy that property.
I like to jump on our atv's and drive our trails that we have made. I usually tell Lisa that I am going to patrol the back 40. Well on one such patrol I came across this in the woods.
It is huge. It is the size of a basketball. As I looked around I spotted even more of these things.
I have found about a dozen of these things. I think they may be Sasquatch eggs. Or maybe they are body snatcher pods. Whatever they are I decided to take matters into my own hands and take care of them before the government disarms me.
I loaded up some hollow points hoping for a spectacular explosion of Sasquatch or alien embryo matter. But nothing really happened as you can tell from my video-agraphers reaction. Satisfied that they were not a threat, I let the others live in peace. They are free to do whatever it is they do.
Our next project will be to clear the land where the garage is going to go. Permits have been applied for and now we wait again.
