If I juggle things just right, we can get the dump truck - but things will be freaky tight for a while.

Dump truck got a flat. $100

Licensing will cost about $600.

Taking water up to the land for the animals seems to have overwhelmed the water systems at base camp. We're trying baling wire and duct tape - but we might need to drop $600.

Somebody stole $250 worth of diesel from the slip tank for the trac hoe.

Golf cart won't charge. We need to buy ramps to get it on and off the trailer.

Tim's pigs are spoken for, so I'll need to buy two hogs for the farmstead meatsmith workshop.

Progress today already. BIG thanks to Tim, Charlie and RJ for all their efforts to fix the water at base camp, and make other repairs and such to keep things moving forward.
