Washed out

It was way too wet to get the trailer on to the block today to deliver the tank. Instead we marked out the driveway by slashing the pasture. We also organised the farmer leasing our land to install some gates and fence off the woodlot so he can let his sheep into the paddock to chew down the pasture before the fire season proper starts.

The neighbour with all the cool toys will be making the driveway this week.¬† All up there is some 60 tonnes of rubble that he will bring on to site to form 70 metres of driveway. It’s not a cheap exercise but a necessary one – if my 4WD struggles to get in and out of the site it’s a fair bet the trucks carrying building materials will have no chance should it rain.
