      Needed a walkway to the caboose, so, we came up with this:

       

       

       

      Eventually, around the fire pit, we will cut the ground down and make a circle of rocks, to simulate a turntable pit...

      A WALKWAY???

      I thought for sure you would at least have a speeder to take you all that distance down from the house!

      You could put rails on it, when you get older you can ride your wheelchair on it. Great job, Love it.

      Son, the ""Speeder"" is the golf cart....    

       

      Ron, I purposely left rails and tie plates off..   1), Because they would be a tripping hazard, and 2), So i can run the mower over it with no problems.

      But you don't trip???

      Every time you fall it's our understanding that Ric pushed you?

      Mom probably cuts the grass anyway!

      Below are pictures of the Firepit area off the walkway:

       

      The rock line to the right of the last picture contains the drainage pipes that drain into the waterway...
