I got 34pics uploading to Photobucket Most are from right before everything went down, so I couldnt imagine how many I would have if I kept taking them.. And I'll warn you, the bank isnt up to par imo, but everyone told me it was fine and looked great, but imo, it looks horrible..
the mud side of things is more fun than the dirt side

And I was saying that in a sarcastic manner as in, I am not lucky, kind of making fun of what Chris named the PM he sent me, "you unlucky b@stard."

pushing a dead tree, not dead enough to just push over, but it dam sure aint easy. But thanks to Chris, I knew a good way to go about it..



Before:


BAM! after:



after pulling a tree out and getting all the brush up:



some what smoothed out: dont give me s#it, its hard to grade pond sludge(I shaped the bank a little bit) for the little bit I had, I couldnt imagine grading the amount chris has on some jobs..


these were dug up before I knew about LS with the old 430 that had major issues. Oh yeah, and this one does the same thing as the one on Youtube with the controls..

looking good to me! It's pretty easy to drag those trees out as the float somewhat. Atleast you can get around the pond now. BTW where's the mud?!?
