The trackhoe made it up from Albuquerque Monday afternoon with a large front-end loader following Tuesday afternoon. With the larger equipment, excavator Kyle is moving some stuff! But the job is really big. Was thinking he would be finished by Friday, but will probably stretch into early next week. But it is one one heck of a job, and every layer can hold surprises. Fortunately, it keeps peeling away like an onion. But we are starting to see some monster boulders start to show.


The engineer came back with final drawings and they were quite a surprise. Based on a high static pressure, that with all of the solid rock that now exists, the designs don't really make sense in my view. The designs should be lightened up. I've called the geotest company that did the original soil analysis and have sent them pictures of what we have, and how it doesn't match the tests they ran four years ago. Will stop in tomorrow when I'm in Santa Fe and discuss it with them.

Always surprises. If we can just get up and out of the ground I think things will go a bit smoother. It's just finding out what Mother Nature has in store the next week or so.

But things are moving forward and that's what matters for sure.
