I miss not being able to work with trac-hoes as much as I used too. Moving the really big boulders and making something happen.
This type of work takes a very specific kind of job, the right client, the right site, available stone, and the ability to move it. A fair amount of visualization helps also. Damn, it sure is fun though. it would seem like there would be a lot of pressure involved, but I never felt it . . . too much fun.
It was definitely working with the biggest tools in the toolbox. More on this over the next week or so.
I won't mind if you share this:
