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.

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.

I thought suppressors did not use the NICS system for the background check.

I wasn't talking specifically NICS, but anything that requires a background check. AFAIK, there is no time limit in which the gov HAS to process a tax stamp application. What's to keep administrators from telling their employees, "Don't process all that suppressor paperwork right now - we have some higher priority stuff you have to do." No law required, just bureaucracy acting in the classical meaning of sabotage.

Well, now I'm leaning towards gaslighting and agenda pushing. I read this morning that they claim the "threat" came from the Three Percenters ("but we can't go into more detail because of security"), so fake news. That's not what the Three Percenters do.

If they wanted to make it sound more credible, they should have picked some wacko group, but I guess that thanks to the MSM, Three Percenters are more well known as a "militia".
