If anyone is free today, Ken is out at DitchDigger w/ some machinery and could use some help w/ the building of some berms. So if you're home today, looking for a dirty job, be like Mike Rowe and get out and help Ken w/ his dirty job.

Yo thanks for the post!

Was able to get out there for a nine to five gig today and got a fair amount done...

Turn around berm on Kids Trail is a couple of feet higher, needs moisture though.

Then moved over to the DitchDigger area, look at all that dirt...
Image

Where'd it go?

Here...

And here...

And... here.

Was able to do some more tweaks to DitchDigger but did not take pics. These features really REALLY need some moisture, so please go easy on them, allowing them to settle / solidify before you "shred" them.

Thank you Dingo and thank you Caleb for the help today!

Ken is out working on Ditchdigger! If you're looking for a great way to beat the heat, grab a shovel or other dirt moving tool, and head on out. He's looking to move some dirt!

Amazing to look back and see this thing since the early days, and how far it has come. Thanks Bigfish, Jeffbro, Stephan, Intenseguy, and Tony for helping make the recent upgrades happen! Now for some moisture, eh?
