Bulldozing bulletin: Week 4

We have come to the end of our bulldozing fete. Can I get an amen?

In order to finish all the projects, Nathan resumed 24-hour shift work. The Bingham crew generously volunteered to help so the dozer dozed around the clock.

Meanwhile, the scraper has done a marvelous job at getting stuck repeatedly. The dozer also got repeated practice at pulling it out of trouble. 

After breaking what we thought was a heavy-duty chain, we are now in possession of two chains, each rated at 15,000 pounds. 

Surely those will hold for a while.

Labor Day Weekend

It's befitting that for this long holiday weekend, my parents have joined us for several days of bulldozing, scraping and leveling. 

We'll rest next year.
