    Nonsense, I have not yet begun to defile myself.

      Lemme know if anyone ever drops a wallet or fishing rod or whatever in there. I'll be happy to bring my scuba gear and retrieve it for you! :wproud: :eusa_angel:

        Hmmmm. A pond with a Par 3 golf course built around it. Sounds like an NEFGA contest to me! :vWicked:

        Man, I can't wait to see everything finished! That is some beautiful country! (the first pic anyway :wRazzing

          Interesting. I used to live in that area. What is the water source going to be?


          The only 2 things keeping me from going pro are skill and luck.

            Ground water. It's 9 feet to water, they'll slope the land down to the water line and then shape the lake down from there. :vThumbsUp:

              Thats cool Ryan! I thought your in-laws were further out of town, but from the pics it doesn't look that way. I can't wait to see the progress on this project.

                  Stopped down there this weekend for Mother's day and took some pictures. The construction company needs 500,000 yards of dirt instead of 200,000 they originally thought they were going to need. Now it's looking like it'll be about 10+ acres of water instead of the 5-6 they originally were planning. I'm hoping to get pictures up tonight after work.

                  We've already got 3-4 little puddles of water!!:ayes: I absolutely can't wait until they're done to get a fishery established!

                        Pictures are coming, they're on my wife's camera. Been crazy busy since last week and will hopefully get a chance to get them up soon!

                          Now that they're getting to the point where most of the lake is underwater, they have a couple of roads through the middle of it and have giant backhoes digging up soil and putting it in the semis. Pretty cool to watch! I'm amazed the dirt doesn't cave in and the equipment doesn't go in the drink.

                            Incredible! Hey, any more you can tell us about the place since you first posted? Acres, goals, etc.?
