I brought up a big bar and some blocks so I could get some leverage on the stump to lift it up a bit. By lifting it up a bit, I could tell if and where there were still some roots to cut. Turned out there was only a small one about an inch in diameter left to cut and I did.
That’s better. The pipe in the ground is not buried very deep as I couldn’t get a machine in here when we installed the water main from our water tanks about thirty years ago.
So, part of what I’m trying to do is put more dirt over the swallow pipe as I work on the trail. The chair is one of the more important tools as it takes a lot of rest to get this stuff done at my age.
I rode on home for a much needed nap.
