    Talked to a man running a D8 cat, and he told me they were going to be crushing up to 15000 yards of rock starting sometime next week. Just thought I would let everybody know.

    Just got home today. Been in Idaho for the last 10 days, so I haven't been up there. Was the info correct that I was given?

    I forgot.... There was a lot of fresh gravel on the road, and a couple of work type pick ups, that I seen driving, so they might be
     
  6. My friend went up today and the rockpit is active again. No more shooting. Sucks.
     
  7. Just FYI, if you're familiar with the area, the lower spot is still open.

    Was up there Tuesday, and talked to one of the workers there, and he told me that when they are done there will be 2 huge piles of crushed rock sitting there. One on each side of the road. Also told me that they were to contor the sides of the pit. He thinks that this is the last time they may use it.
