early days :: the trench

7.22.2009-Wednesday

Woke at 5:45 Am. Traveled North. At Camp we met the builders and then set off on our own agenda.

A snapshot of five hours of work (between two people). A two foot trench through clay, rock and root. Most, if not all of the earth was loosed by a pick axe before a shovel removed it. We buried a heavy aluminum three phase cable capable of carrying enough current to light up a small village under two inches of earth before running the waterproof shielded ethernet cable. Eventually the ethernet will link a control panel in the cabin to the inverter in the garage.

Still… 5 hours of digging between two people and a mere 35 feet of trench.
