Ahoy matey, there be dirt here!
So, this is what you get for three days on a backhoe/front end loader. Or more correctly, half of what you get. The other half is a stock tank in the north pasture that is now three times the depth that it was Saturday morning.
The backstop is 15 feet high by 25 yards wide, the side berms start at 15 feet at the inside corners and taper down to 8 feet high 25 yards out from the backstop. At the 15 foot top, the backstop is still 4 feet wide. Call it overkill but I would be happy to shoot a SLAP round out of a fifty cal and know nothing is coming out the other side.
Now I need ice and heat multiple times and some serious sleep. I ache.
