Tim, give Richard (pole hole digger) the pole.
Pull Richardís carburetor choke out all the way.
Pull his starter cord.
When he hallers, push the choke back in.
He will then spin the pole.
Pay me a buck (or doe will do)

Well it's official our hosting job is gone, due to the high numbers of people flocking to the state parks, from many of the hot spot areas, they closed the parks to camping. Ar is one of 5 states that have not gone into lockdown so many from Lousiana were coming to camp.

Used a gas powered auger (rental) one time. First hole I dug the auger caught a drainage tile and screwed itself 2-1/2 feet into the ground. Had to get the 36 inch pipe wrench to get it twisted back out. Rest of the holes went fine...

30+ years ago a friend gave me a new cap. He had a stack of them in his car so I'm always a sucker for a free cap. We had just moved into our present S&B and with the help of a BIL I rented a power auger and started on building a back deck. Sometime in the construction project DW came to the door to report there was no dial tone on the phone( remember dial tones?).

On inspection of some of the new holes, we found that sur enough the phone line crawled over into our hole and was severed. LUCKLY my buddy that gave me the cap, which I was wearing, worked for the phone company so a call was placed from neighbors house to my buddy's home. In short time he was there and had things all patched back together. Now we're enjoying a glass of sweet tea and he points out the new cap on my head. It said "Call Before You Dig!".

You need to have someone with you to wear that cap so you can read it!
