I have 1/2" bolts and we would need at least 10 inches of length.

I will try to come out but won't be much help - just got back from the doctor since i wrecked Sunday and hurt my ribs. turns out i have 2 ribs that are still healing from being broken on our Colorado / Utah trip last September. good thing is they did not rebreak, just bruised ribs this time.

I have a 12" 3/8 and a 3/4 bit but not 1/2 ". I also have 2 8"long 1/2" bolts and 11 6" long 1/2" bolts we can use plus some nuts and washers. So I'll bring the generator, drill, circular saw and recip saw plus wheel barrow and hand truck. extension cord and a post hole digger. Anything else? Do we need the chain saw?

I think Rhys has the club chainsaw. Sounds like we have just about everything covered but the materials. Ryan, I assume based on our offline talk for budgeting we have everything accounted for?

There's a mudhole just before the new bridge, I spoke to Rhys yesterday about making a trip to the limestone pile with all the wheel barrows and/or hand trucks for a load to dump there.

Stu. I was thinking last night that it would be really nice to taper the berm down all the way to the deck level on the start end. To do this we would need 1 more 2x6x12. Can we swing this?
Tim. That sounds good. I will get a 1/2"x12" bit. Do you have a regular length 1 1/4" bit to countersink the bolt heads?

I don't think that will be a problem.

I think between you, Ryan, Rhys, Rick, and Sally we'll have drills, saws, and a miter. I think we have everything covered.

I spoke to Rick yest. while Sally and I go to Home Depot to get supplies, you and help can take your 2 wheel trucks/barrows along with Ricky's and go fill them up with limestone. We'll fill in the mudhole in front of the new bridge. Ricky's cell 915-3159, Tim's cell 214-1176.

Thanks to Sally, Rhys, Ricky, Ryan, Tim, Alex, (guy with the Saints hat?), Brent for the great help today. Phase ? (I have lost count) and we still have another workday to go. Things are progressing nicely, I think it is safe to say you won't find anything like this in LA.

Special thanks to those who have contributed to fund this project: Stu, Ricky, Rhys, Ryan, Scuba, and Sally.

Tim gave the green light for next Saturday (2/20) to come back out and bring his sled of power tools and generator. I think if enough people show-up we can finish this. I think we have enough materials but can make a run if need be.

Let's meet for 7ish.

Ok let's make a tool list. I'll bring the gen set, circular saw, drill, wheel barrow, hand truck and 1 extention cord.

I can bring a miter saw , chain saw and saws-all if needed.

Do we need shovels, pole hole digger, extra hammers, levels, any special drill bits and ??????
