    I've not seen a whole lot going on here in the past few months. Thought I'd share the project we're working on.

    on the previous post I included the big rock because it took 2 days of hammering to get it small enough to move

    Big project!

    Any particular reason that you did not use matrix blocks?

    What is the projected total GPH?

    Thought about it but with driving the tractor in there like we've done to stack the rocks I went with the old tried and true. That and space limitation wasn't an issue.
