My kingdom for a dump truck....

So, I have found quite a bit of dirt. it is not too close, but not too far.

I am still holding out for the dirt that can be dumped into a dump truck, then dumped once again in the backyard.

Step 1. Pile dirt.

Step 2.

Step 3. Profit.

As it is simply laid out above in 3 steps, I am virtually fully on top of step 1. While I have no in fact piled any dirt yet, I have located plenty of it.

Let me know if you have a dump truck. I do have the hookup on a dump trailer though..... Might just have to work.

Went to Home depot today for nails. So many different nails. Too many. I went for the shiny yellow labeled ones.

Luckily they were the framing nails, so it was a good choice.

I am building some ladders. First on is so far going to be 38 feet or so. Then probably drop two feet to another ladder.
The house is on a cul-de-sac, so I can set them up in the street or the yard. I am making them in sectional peices that screw together, and easily come apart to store. I don't want to be one of those people with one of those yards..........
So while at home depot I grabbed another 12' 2' x 4',. This matches the one I already have.

When I moved in the landlord was talking about getting rid of this pile of wood. Most of it was useable, and it had this creampuff 12 footer.

Didn't take long to talk him into leaving it.

This may sound strange, but I'm trying to locate a friend from a LONG time ago, and your blog was the only hit I got for him. His name is Chris McDermott and I believe he was a bike messenger in Portland for a number of years. The Chris McDermott that lived in Newberg, parents divorced and he moved to Hawaii for a few years (back when he was 7 or 8). Just surfing and wondered how he's doing, hoping maybe you can shed some light on what he's up to now?

Much appreciated.
