You can easily find 200ft extension cords, which would at least cut one of the connections out, but the 100' 10 ga cords are like $150ish.  That's a lot of scratch.

If your stores have it for you, I'd use 300ft of submersible 10/2 well pump wire.  That stuff is usually sold by the foot, comes in 500ft rolls, and is by definition waterproof.  Then you'd have no splices or connectors at all.


Waterproof, yes. UV-protected, no.

What is texmex style? Rice and beans itself is kinda bland to me, but I'd be up for spicing it up some.

Rice and beans is the base.  Use Mexican rice, from a box if you want, and seasoned beans. Top that with diced bell peppers, diced jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro, cheese, salsa, sour cream, etc.  Basically, whatever you like in a burrito works here. 

For added flavor, cook the rice in a broth such as chicken stock, instead of water. Or veggie stock.  Stir in some cumin and other spices near the end if you are using white rice.

Organ donor?

On the Medic One unit, that was the reason we called motorcycles 'donorcycles'.  The unhelmeted riders would have their heads terminally damaged, but the rest of the body was in good enough shape to serve as a donor.

Are you planting seedlings or cut stems?

A bunch of stuff. It's part of an NRCS contract I'm doing, and the species were recommended by them. Around 100 coyote willow poles I harvested from the fish and game land across the street, then 40 various native trees and large shrubs that I ordered from Plants of the Wild (a WA nursery for Pacific Northwest natives) as seedlings - black cottonwood, peach leaf willow, scouler willow, golden currant, and silver buffaloberry.

The coyote willow poles all have to hit the Summer water table, so the holes are just about the length of the auger, which has been the biggest pain with the rocky ground. I have to drill the hole with the 2" auger, stick in the pole, then pour in a mud slurry to ensure full soil contact. The seedlings just have to go in to cover the root system, so a much shallower hole with the 6" auger, which has been much easier to do.

I about crapped a brick when I bought a 100' 12 gauge extension cord. I'd be scared what a 10 gauge x3 is going to cost.

What good is the body if the head is destroyed?

For that many holes rent an auger.  For the same money youíll get a much better machine, and it will be faster.  And you wonít have to store or maintain it.  Or worry about fuel stabilizer.

That said, for my chainsaw at least Iíve gone to 40:1 at least.  Hurts emissions I guess but the engine is happier.

Renting an auger would have cost me more than buying this one, for the days I would need it. Despite my trying not to buy Chinese as much, the HF Predator machines are pretty Honda-like, and I have other future uses for this one.

I was looking at getting a post holer for the tractor, but couldn't have used it for this project because it's planting habitat and streambank stabilization vegetation in place I can't get to with a tractor.

Ben, I congratulate you on being such a "grand" uncle.

Thanks. My niece, who died of a brain tumor a few years ago, was always like a daughter to me, so I feel it's my duty to take care of my grand niece. I feel bad though, for all the kids that don't have someone to help them, financially or otherwise, get through this remote learning charlie foxtrot.
