How to describe today – productive, labor intensive, Praise God for little things that may not be the best thing. Let me ‘splain.
The Bobcat was supposed to be picked up at noon. Gravel delivered at 3:30. Sigh. Or so we thought. They didn’t have us on the schedule for pick up, instead it would be later in the day. Sweet! We still had 7 hours of usage left on it. So Mr. Man got to work doing whatever last minute things we could find. Bou and I (with some help from the girls), got to work gathering more large rocks to line the rest of the hill on the driveway. Fast forward – we finish the border on the drive. The gravel is delivered. The Bobcat pick up driver calls – he has a flat tire about an hour away! Praise God! We got an extra 2 hours use of it!! Enough time to spread and level most of the gravel!! Thank you Lord!!! A little bit will need to be done tomorrow with shovels, which was expected anyway. And the rock border holds it all in nicely!!
The bad news – the online estimator said 400 ft of gravel at 4 inches thick was a bit less then 100 tons. After spreading 20 tons out thinner than that… that estimator was wrong. It will be closer to 150-200 tons. Oh well, some ups and downs, right??
Camping starts tomorrow … Most of the day will likely be spent gathering all of our items and getting what we are lacking. One step closer!!!
