The gates are done.

I stopped on my way home today and installed the gates. Before someone says something, I know the gate post on the right is taller than the left. I did run a line level between them and I marked where to cut the south post but I didn't have a saw with me tonight. I'll get it cut this coming weekend.

On my way back to the camper I stopped across the highway and took a pic from that side of the street. You can barely see the logger's feller behind the gate, my shop will be about 150' past where his feller is parked.

Just so everyone knows, i did ask about iPhone pics not showing up right. Camaro Zac and cutter told me to take the pics in landscape mode with the home button on the left. I'll try it with the home button on the right next time.

Thanks for clearing that up. I was wondering if Florida had slid closer to Australia

The shop and the house will be on the same property?
You just don't have a road across the place yet?

The shop and house will be on the same lot but separated by a bunch of trees so the shop activities will not be really visible from the house.

I have access from the state highway Rt 17 to the property. This access is from Rt 17 and will lead to the shop. We are calling this access "Red Neck Road"

The residential driveway to the house comes off of Sandhill Rd. and it's about an 850' long driveway through the pines to the house. This driveway has been cut in but in it's present state it is not drivable with a car or my truck. I have some more stumps to remove and then grade it and bring in some base material.

I am hoping to call in a favor this weekend and get some overhead drone footage of the grove. If all goes well I'll post it on youtube.

Maybe it's a Jersey thing. Or the version of iPhone.

Jersey is 4 months old in the rear view mirror, I guess I'll never stop being reminded

In looking back at the picture issue, Zach said to turn the phone 90* to the left, I took a test pic and it worked. When I took the pics of the gates this afternoon the last thing I remembered was Cutter saying that the home button needed to be on the left, so that's what I did.

Putting the home button on the left turns the phone 90* to the right, and that's why the pics are upside down.
