    You guys are funny. So fine, here are a few pics to keep everyone happy:laugh:

    Coastal- The 2011 is treating us well so far with the few miles it has on it so far. I haven't had a chance to drive it, but my dad seems to think the truck is pretty sweet!

    So I started looking through all the photos I've taken over the last few months and I think this update is going to take a bit.

    Anyway, here are the pics from the beginning:

    Starting to arrange windrows for coloring with powder back in early Feb.:

    First pics of grinding during that same time:

    While the grinding was going on, we were also in the back of the pit I'm set up at mining, sorting, shearing, and grinding stumps for some more raw material.

    Some stump shearing action with a Doosan 225:

    Fast forward to a little over a month ago.

    We have enough stumps for a few days of grinding, right?

    Bringing in the grinding reinforcements. I think we're going to need more stumps...:

    Hmm, how do you mine 4000 yds of stumps in just a few days? Bring in a bigger machine:weightlifter:

    This bucket would fit on the 50D, right?

    Now here are some recent pics from a week or two ago.

    First off, while the powder created a great black product, we decided that using powder going forward wasn't going to be the most efficient or profitable way of doing things. So we pulled the trigger on a liquid color system:
