A couple of B-train loads(secondary weight) of flax got picked up out of here on Thursday. The tires cut into the municipal road and basically never left a mark on our nearly half mile long driveway. A lack of gravel and too flat is ruining the road. I told them I have a good road that is poorly maintained.....and that is the absolute truth!

I took pictures of the municipal road and our private driveway for comparison sake..... just say something! Bring it on, pictures speak better than I can. Reply With Quote

If any thing goes wrong at all in the area you will quickly be implicated and liable, or have to defend your self in court.

What a shitty system we have. It should be like the “Good Samaritan act”. Reply With Quote
