On my end, I'm probably leaving the month of August open, so start taking stabs at weekend 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5.

And I don't want to rain on any other volunteers either.... Ron...

We are far enough out we can move it around some to suit. Lemme know what y’all are thinking. I will need to get dates nailed down before long. I have two different jobs I know of right now that I will be leaving the states for and I would like to put in for time off so they can’t get pissy if I had booked time off months in advance .
I should be able to make it, but don't plan it around me the 'new' job has
my schedule as flexible...

google streetview still looks pretty flat around tripton, but I suppose relative to your part of the world it's positively mountainous!

round here it's not a hill if you dont feel the burn in your calves walking up it, just a slope

If you plow that without it being terraced , the top soil will be in the creek or on the neighbors .Missouri has thin top soil compared to Iowa .Seems most of the rocks from ice age got here and the better ground stuff ended up in Iowa.
