  • The quarry must love you. You must keep their lights on with as many roads ive seen you make.

  • This looks amazing! I design these gravel roads all the time but rarely get to see them constructed. Question: why did you opt for gaps in the fabric around the outside of the curve rather than overlaps to the inside?

  • It may be weird, but i really really want to pressure wash the bed of your off-road dump truck haha. Im sure it would be a mess but I feel it would be extremely satisfying

  • The road looks really good. The subgrade looks like what would be done for a public road. Really nice job 👏

  • That looks like Ga red clay. Packs like concrete when it is wet and dusty as the desert when it is dry. It is nice when you can find the material need on site and you don't have to truck it in. I can only dream of spending that kind of money...

    • Some machines have sensors on their business end tied to GPS or an on-site laser-leveled reference point. Those set-ups are very pricey and can be a huge pain to set up and maintain. With Chris, it looks like it's his years of experience and skills that are producing the precision results. Years of experience are also very expensive to set-up and maintain 😜

  • You know?? That red clay sure does look like 1950's brick clay before compressed an baked. .. but the drive is looking great an I like the drainage on each side keeping the surface water off of the road bed..., So many contractors don't understand how to build a road bed that will last the years of use.. You Sir do! 👍edit.. by the way that is scary sitting on top of the dump bed standing straight up an down 😅

  • You can go to your Deleted Folder or Trash folder and restore those videos if you didn't also delete them from there. Unless you never copied them to your computer. That's all I know about this, because I did this before and had to get help, just trying to help you get your videos back. As far as computers go, I'm an idiot, but hopefully this helps you.

    Barry ElizandoBarry Elizando10 ditë më parë
    • Barry Elizando i have seen thousands of acres sold all around me but luckily a man, his son and daughter bought the majority of it for hunting so its locked in for many years to come because their kids love hunting riding their ATVs out there. They live an hour away and come down regularly for camping also, luckily the kids have almost talked them into making an atv park so maybe we will have miles and miles of trails to ride before long...well at least till hunting season but i would rather ride in the summer anyway.

    • @young11984 You are correct. My in-laws have property that they inherited in Dairy land, and none of the kids want to work the land. They do just as you mentioned cause I see it and hear it..
