I didn't see a response to your question from Day 27 regarding the pipes that come out of the culverts here in AK...if I missed it, sorry for the repeat.

Those pipes run from the road side, down to the culvert, then through the culvert to the other side of the road. The section of pipe that runs through the culvert has holes drilled along it's length so steam trucks can blow pressurized steam into them in spring to thaw the culvert.

Great write up, and nice pics...even though I live here, I just can't get enough :)

Either the rubber is bad or you are running too low of pressure. With your load you should be up around 30 psi.

I've been following Dr. Rock & LDF's RR / Mobius 4. I appreciate your comments and have a related question. Looks like you used PICASA to build a slide show and then uploaded to ADVR. If you have time could you send a little tutorial. I use Picasa and have made RR's but haven't figured out how to get them to ADVR in that format. Also must image files size be restricted to JPEGs. ?

Sorry to jump in here but as a noob I had a hard time finding you elsewhere today.
Thanks... it fine to email me if that works better.
