Next, cut a string that measures half your diameter when tied to the iron rod in the center. If you have a four foot diameter hole cut a string that extends two feet from the center rod. Spray paint a circle where the string ends, around the rod in the center of the hole. Dig out the sod or grass that is in the painted circle.

And the experts you find in the field are amazing – “You should have lessened your lock and then taken it slower, now edge forward a touch, blah blah blah…”. I wish I could have watched some of the “experts” do it.
If you are going to visit and want to check this place out be sure to get a map from the museum store and take a hike. While we were up there it was trout fishing season in the little lakes and streams about, and plum-picking season had just begun. It’s also not uncommon to see hunters in their trucks with the bed full of their hunting dogs. They usually end up with some pretty nice boars to take home.
Long ago, before we, as a human species settled down into a more civilized world, we had many things to worry about in the wilds of the world. As the human species began evolving, we became scared of things like the dark. We became scare of being eaten alive by wild flesh eating beasts. It became even worse when those two things came together. The world could be a terrifying place to be in for a human. Thus, the fight or flight response was born.
