    Here is some pictures of a building lot we start with before clearing and developing starts. This is a easy lot the road was roughed in couple years ago but the rest needs clearing and flattening out.

    Reminds me of roadbuilding to houses out here. Lots of trees, steep slopes, no place to screw up. We don't have as much rock but we can hit basalt 2-3 feet down. Caliche is really bad in some places, usually about 4-5 feet down. Most of the time it isn't a big deal for us landscapers, but I did do a big basement dig last year and the top of the cut to the floor was 14 feet, hit caliche about 70% of the way down. Did that job with our 303. I've been on the Sea to Sky Highway, that is nuts what they're doing there.

    That is a pretty place. My first investment would be a chain saw. I think I would feel a little clastraphobic (you know what I mean).
