    now i had to cheat a little, i wanted to start the cups upright, knock them down, stack them then turn them up again but it was so frickin windy every time i would put them out they would be blown all over the job by the time i got back in the hoe....so i started with them down and here you go

    Yeah you had to cheat.... LOL

    How about stacking them vertically??

    Think I'll try that tomorrow while I'm waiting in between trucks to haul dirt in.

    All you have to do is spit in the bottom of them, sprinkle a little dirt on that and it will add just enough weight to keep the from blowing away. That's what I did:drinkup:

    you don't know how hard the wind was blowing...it tatterd the flag at the entrance to the development...it was funny, it was a beautiful day, 65 degrees, sunny...but the wind was enough to blow me around in the 10wheeler driving to and from the job

    That was awesome! Although I was expecting you just to smash the cups down just for the hell of it!
