Day 1

Hours worked: 9 (9:30am - 6:30pm)
Workers: My friend Nigel (thanks Nig), Nola, Jackson and me.
Progress: 16 inches (out of about 72)

Today is a holiday so my buddy Nig came over to lend a hand. Thanks man.
We worked hard while Nola kept us feed and hydrated. She also took care of Jackson. At the end of a hard day we had done 16 inches. That might not sound like a lot but the hole is 55 feet long and 2 feet wide.
Here's what that much dirt looks like,So that was day 1.
I am very soar and stiff. Tomorrow we have no Nig, but Nola and I will pick up the slack. I hope to get an early start at about 8:30 but we'll see how that works out. It's supposed to get to a high of 28 or something for both tomorrow and Wednesday. That will be no fun. Mom and Dad get in on Thursday so there will be some extra help for Thursday and possibly Friday.

It's allways hard to guage how far you realy are so I'm going to give you my predictions every day.

Predicted completion date:
Digging - Saturday
Everything - Late Sunday.
# of bin loads - 5

Hey looks good John! The first 18 inches is the easiest!

I'm looking forward to doing my part.
