Mike,
The house is located on Medina Line Rd.. Being that you are familiar with the area, if you come off of Everett and head north on Medina Line you cross over 271 and my drive is the 2nd one on the left........or just follow the mud trail!
Put that truck in 4wd and come on back if you are in the area!

Pictures of the driveway project from inception....

Not sure if I had posted these before in another thread but here are a few shots of how the driveway began and what it looked like prior to Monday. The good news is that 95% of the drive is holding up to the traffic just fine, and with the concrete trucks being the heaviest things that will roll down it, 2 of them have not done much damage. The other good thing is that the weather is turning colder so it should help to firm up the ground.

Well, we will see what today brings and I will try to get more pics later of the progress.

That would be mandatory. Doors on either end so you can drive through with the boat, and park the whole rig inside still hooked up.

Quite the contrary! Ever try puttin down a case of "heavy " beer? Aint gonna happen unless you some time to work on it. By the time you get a good buzz goin' you're too full to drink any more!
"Heavy" beer is for wine drinkers that are too embarrassed to drink wine in front of their buddies. "Light" beer is a drinkin' man's beer!

Is this thread about building a house or getting drunK? (I know they go hand in hand!)

You would be absolutely correct. The plan.....when I recover financially from the home construction, will be to add a 40x60 pole building with a 12' door so that I can always leave the rig connected. Not sure if I will have enough room to make it a drive thru or not given the location I am planning to put it in but I should be OK.....heck it's just more stone and another garage door right!!!

Always pays to plan ahead.

Today things got better!

Well, today things seemed to get better and possibly back on track. The additional 60 ton of stone combined with the 20 ton of ground asphalt seemed to create a stable path of the block trucks to get in and out.
So, 2 or 3 block tucks delivered today and the guys got rolling. I was amazed to see how far they got in the course of the day and with the forecast calling for sunny and 46 degrees tomorrow and pretty much nothing but rain Friday thru the weekend, well I think they will be shooting to get a lot done tomorrow.

Things are taking shape that is for sure. I should have the skidder tires/wheels back tomorrow so that will be back in action for the weekend of driveway repair......I hope!

As for the future tower DD, well, I am still hopeful for that in 2013 but if you guys want to take up a collection and send it to me, well that would go a long ways towards making it a reality!

Thanks for the interest in the project guys, it is fun to share the ups and downs. Perspective is what it is all about, I am finding. In the grande scheme of things, no matter what may go wrong I am still far better off than many people in the world and lucky to be so! At the end of each day I can come home to a wife and a smiling 1.5 year old boy that knows nothing of the days trials/tribulations and furthermore does not care, which is just great.
