    Sorry for the size of the pics, there are 3 of them, they may take a bit to load

    Here are pics of the hill in the slope posting we all found amusing.
    I met up with Joshua today and He's a good guy
    Just needs to brush up on guessing angles....
    The proof is in the pics !!
    The 3 pics are of the actual spot in the slope posting, I have taken a side pic and pics with the angle meter. 20 degrees was the reading on that hill....

    So as you can see, We are not going to be POUNDING ANY SALT...

    Is that house in the background New York's version of the leaning tower of Pisa?

    hate to but if the picture had the lamp post and house at a 90. then friend that would not be a 27 degree hill.
    and it certainly is not one i would be going off in forward.josha id assume you never get stoped til you get to a flat area.what you going to do if a kid runs out there when you are making a run.really not criticizing just wondered if you have thought it thru.mabe im not geting something but taken with post strait that is a very steep hill.later on

    The house is on another hill across a street, and the proof is in the reading of the angle meter, it may not look right, but it is, the hills are all different in that area.
    Joshua was standing right there when I took the pics...and the meter readings.

    I was mowing slopes like that when I was 13 on a 1972 Sears Suburban 12.
