    15 yards of gravel to move….and lots of jobs. Loading, dumping, spreading, carrying…

    If you can bring rakes, shovels and a wheelbarrow, it will help the project go faster.

    Thanks everyone!



    Nickelsville is at the intersection of highland park way and marginal way. The entrance is in the park and ride lot south of the intersection on the east side of marginal way.



    the entrance to NV is right across the street from the Pacific Plumbing Supply building on the east side of the street, on West Marginal Way where it intersects with Highland Parkway. Park in the lot and walk over the berm…

    the map shows a big empty field…it is now NV…



    The following is a copy & paste of a comment I made last evening on the comment thread of the article on WSB’s front page, announcing the gravel “party”. Due to a very unstable wi-fi connection last night, I was unable to also post it over here in the Forums

    So here goes:

    Thanks to the folks who came down and helped shovel, haul, and spread the gravel today!


    Each part required a certain level of stamina, especially wheeling the wheelbarrow loads over the berm, something I would not have been able to do.


    The Volunteers that joined us down here worked hard, as did many our our residents.


    As far as directly working with the gravel, about the only thing I would have been physically able to to was help to spread it.


    Instead, at the request of Head of Security, I took over for the guy doing Security on the berm, so that he could join the wheelbarrow crew.


    Oh, and one of the Volunteers even brought his own wheelbarrow, shovel, and other tools!
