So I was drilling a series of 8" or so holes for the hitch for the timber. Then Scott connected the dots with the chipping hammer and made a nice seat for the timber set. Very hard rock so we had to drill some holes first.

Very cool. Is there a reason these photos have not leaked out before now? I had only seen the group photo.

And there is a Punkin' Head sighting at 2:46.

To be honest I sorta forgot about the photos, and I had no idea Piersa took so many, or videos. Mike gave me a flash drive with all the pics and vids after we were talking about it the other day. In the not too distant future we're gonna go back in and finish it.
