I agree 100%. Former township commissioner just came by and dropped it in one day, no level or anything else. The ends are curled up and bare metal was showing in places before I put three coats of rock over the top. They run tandems with 20 yd dumpsters over it.

Wish I could, but I will be at Walnut Hill the next few days. One of my friends has a newer house on Nixon Rd.

I've got 2 videos from today. I've already uploaded a timelapse and am currently loading a long video. The timelapse is of me cutting hedge along a fencerow. It was supposed to be a video of the last hour of work, but I got tangled in 3 strands of barbwire early on and it took me a while to get it out. The hedge is very tough, it makes the whole mower shake and it just comes out as a fine dust (great for my alergies).
