This is Ben Ingham with Expert Village to talk to you about putting in a gravel road. And then I had a contractor come in and bring me 2 semi loads of gravel and he spread it out the best he could by driving along the road that I had already dug out with the box blade and then I was able to go back, after he got off of the property, and re-work it with the box blade to try to get a nice even core for the, to be driving on and so far it's held up quite well. I've had a lot of concrete trucks and cinder block trucks and lot of grain trucks and all kinds of things come across the ground right after a rain and it's held up very well so it's been a very good road base for us. Someday we might want to do something differently but we kind like the gravel road and the way it looks. It has a very rustic look to it.
