How about starting a rumor Billy The Kid burried Treasure and you are trying to find it? Would that get you holes dug.

Calvin, have you ever read Tom Sawyer?????

Calvin, my friend. What are you planting?

Calvin!! I just had another off-the-wall-idea,---can you get an auger bit about 2 inch diameter for a half inch drill and drill small holes close together in the big hole, then break out the thin wall between the small holes?-----Probably would need to make extensions to reach the bottom of hole as you got deeper, then all you would have to handle is the loose stuff!!----It may soften up after you get down 3 or 4 feet, depending on the soil structure of your location! ----what do you think, guys?----anybody ever try it that way? thanks; sonny

Well to tell the truth I am either still young enough or dumb enough (possibly all of the above) to just take the wooden handle from the pick and slide a piece of pipe over 1 end and just wale away at it till tired. Have one of Mr Bushes fine brews to cool off and then at it again.

Judging by his web page, I would bet he is putting a tower up.
