It is slow and hard work

Date:

May 28, 2009.

Today we dug for a couple hours and did not get far.  We keep running in to veins of very hard rock.  This slows my progress a lot!

I drive the back hoe, Val takes the removed dirt with Onslo, the smaller tractor.  To keep things cleaner, I dump the back hoe right into the front end loader on the other tractor.  This means there is far less clean up and less chance of accidentally removing my footing markers for the continuing dig.

Also seen here in the video and specifically in the images are some of the openings between layers of rock that appear to be allowing water to drain from the footing holes and out to the edge of the hill.
