Well it was a nice day today so I broke ground and dug the one of 2 river crossings on my back yard field the field measurement is roughly 100 by 60
so it is fairly large I also picked up 1 tone of blast aggregate for the roads it is a very fine natural blast media that I came across it works perfect for roads and does not clog up 1/16 tracks or get caught .. I have lots ...hint hint for te field in black creek..
the biggest issues is the hills that I want to make around the field and buildings ect but its coming along well..

How quickly does this stuff dry up after rain , will it hold up well outdoors?

I plan to come by and see it.

My schedule this time of the year is hectic, so it may be this week, or early into next week, I will check w/you when I have a date available.

Don't take this as a lack of interest, because it sounds good (I checked out its MSDS and it is pretty harmless and inert), it is just a tough time for me to get a few moments, right now; I will be in touch. on this.

I wish I could put a battlefield in my backyard, but I don't think it would go over well with the wife, but I'm sure the kids would love playing in the dirt.

Would love to see some pictures. Very Happy

I am still quite interested in coming over to see the field and blast aggregate.

This week has not been good for doing that.

Perhaps this week end or next week in the evening.

I am driving by Sherkston on my way home around 5:15 on week nights, if that would work, if not, we will see what the weekend or a weeknight next week looks like; I will bring a camera.
