Can't remember if you told us but how many acres?

Got the spot for the well picked out yet?  Where's the gun range?  I don't see a hammock with a small table holding a glass of lemonade anywhere in those pictures...

Free standing hammock!  :mellow:

No trees...  sigh.  Time to remedy that!  Do trees grow in Wyoming?

Yes, but you need to tie them, to grow straight due to the wind

Far more important is to protect them from the deer. I have about two dozen "trees" that are hardly (or not at all) as tall as they were when planted 11 years ago (out of the 360 trees I planted then). The deer destroy the growing tops yearly, and I have no idea how any of these few survive at all. But they'll never be actual trees, I'm afraid.

Gas powered?!?  Where's your sense of adventure?  Shovel, clamshell digger...  Heck, just go for a spoon! :laugh:

Seriously though, have fun dawg.  Keep us updated on your progress.

Hey Knobster

not fun

1320ft a side, 10 feet apart = a hell of a lot t-posts per side

No fun indeed! 

Another reason I love Iowa.  When putting in my garden fence the top 24 inches was beautiful black dirt.  Took me less than 5 minutes to dig a 3-foot hole.

that is part of the challenge, to change the soil from clay to good humus dirt.
can be done, but does take some time.
