I know those holes are much bigger in reality than they appear in the pictures, so I agree a scale of some kind would be useful for those who haven't seen them in person.

Unfortunately Mr. HWMNBN, only the president can make such designations. Careful, you might find yourself appointed to another blue ribbon committee.

Looks like a whole lot of clearing will be needed in the future as track gets down to that spot.  Time to call "Rent a Beaver"?   ;D

It is all cleared through there. We are leaving as many trees as possible from this point North. This will cut down on the amount of mowing, and help meet the criteria for operating near the brook.

Save the trees for feed stock for our saw mill.  Log trains into mill and flats of lumber out.

That topography is not quite as simple as I pictured. Should be a satisfying challenge.  ;)

And another thing...how about a hint--who is HWMNBN?
And why??  ;D ???

He Who Must Not Be Named.

I'm not sure why; you'd have to ask him.   ;D

A certain member has had a fondness in the past to offer up my name as a volunteer when various work tasks are announced on the forum.  When that happens, I reply "please do not use my name," and change my avatar to HWMNBN.  It's a Harry Potter reference.
What–me worry?

I really appreciate seeing Mike's roadbed shots. Those vacant embankments are so enticing.
