Shawn,
While I was out there, noticed at house on other side of tree line, were two large mounds of dirt. Maybe they're interested in getting rid of ?? Close to track & not far to haul. Might be worth asking ?

Could you remind us how big old drivers stand was : Length, Width, Height ?
& what you might be looking into new stand. Don't think we need that big again ? I'll start fiddling with new plans.

Thanks
Eric

Eric, hit my cell next time b4 you go out. I know i would have been alot of help due to my illness but i could have really been there to drag some. the plans have the track going into the area the pipe was set to the side, but no worries because we are going to remove about 1 ft of the track in order to fix the water problem.

As of now I can be there between 9-9:30am & the word "pull" was used?
Shawn, could you bring along with you, the track design you have in mind? + what tools I should bring with me.
Thanks
Eric

yes i will be there on sunday. i am going to bring the paper. Also the pull is old fashion kick and pull! i will try to use the machine on saturday morning. I will also try to move the wood toward the dirt track.

Before i start i have to clean the concrete oval up. Once that is done i can start on the dirt owners preference.
