 I have to level some more ground

That is some nice looking existing soil, are you sure you don't want to open a gravel pit instead? ;)

Good luck with the new kiln. If I did that on my land the pile of rocks would be bigger than the pile of wood.

I though of that but theres only so many hrs in the day, and with all the paper work to open a pit It would cost 50,ooo.00 just to start one, before I dig  :D :D :D :D,
and it would only be a 25 A pit, for the money I have to have 100+ A,  then you have to reclam the land and thats 30,000.00+
It gos on and on , not like the old days :D :D

Good looking kiln site, Peter.   :)

If I did that on my land the pile of rocks would be bigger than the pile of wood.
If I did that on my land there would not be the first single rock.

     Same here in north Florida.  I think I'd have to drive a hundred miles from here to find a rock.  It's all sugar sand.

Very little sand, just hard clay.  Our dug stock ponds, etc. hold water very well because of the clay.

I say all rocks on my land. Just up the road from me,I buy gravel from him.My grandparents use to own that. Lots and lots of gravel pits just within a few miles of my place. I redid my 500 foot driveway,I don't think there was a rock bigger than 3 inches in all the loads he brought me.
