To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following:
  - The pile of material before you begin
  - The destination before you begin
  - action pic
  - a pic of the source pile at completion
  - a pic of the destination at completion

Doing the 5 scoops with the tractor loader at the 2021 SKIP event at Wheaton Labs Base camp. And not rolling the tractor down the hill. Stay seated!

For this BB I used  a tractor with a front end loader (FEL) for 42 minutes to move dirt from a pile to an adjacent site.  To ensure that I can document my learning, a journal for each BB is created.  As my learning increases, it can be documented in the journal page  The following are the proof through pictures and the journal.
