We Did It!!!

And by "it" I mean finished the damn fence!!!! Oh man, I am still excited about it. The excitement is from knowing there are no more days of this grueling labor in front of us. That was some painful stuff.

First off I have to give thanks and shout-outs to the friends who helped. Eric was the first(Friday). This was hole digging day. Starting out with hand digging some holes that were too close to buried utility lines so we could not use the power auger in those spots. Then we stood around waiting for wood. It arrived and we ate and rented the auger. Eric got really excited about this lovely machine. Basically a motor attached to a huge drill for drilling terra firma. Although this machine made it a lot faster, it still took the most out of me using it. We had to haul that thing around, get it "unstuck" from the hard as hell clay we hit. It was painful. AND we were in a hurry to get it back before they closed as to not pay for an extra day.

Saturday was used for setting the rest of the posts with Saji(my Boss) helping us out. Quick day filled with moving dirt and carrying 8 foot 4x4 poles around.

Sunday was the sudden death, as I did not want it to go beyond the weekend. My old friend Matt from my childhood(and now a present day friend) came to show off his screwing skillz. He whipped us into a good pattern and flow of work getting it finished before 6:00~! OH THE RELIEF!!!!

How does it look? I am happy with the results... Is it perfect? no. But did we save about $2-3000 on professional install? Hell ya we did. I am gonna take a nap for about a week, until we get to move!!!! EVERY muscle hurts right now. I am cramping from typing this.
