While the excavator is at my plot, I decide to do a good portion of the earthworks I have planned. While digging out a large terrace which will serve as water retention as well as a site for one of my houses, I found that I had more dirt than I knew what to do with. The solution was to just dive right into my plans to turn my plot into a permaculture bike park, so I used the extra dirt to make some large bicycle jumps. It was during this process that I realized that I was fulfilling many long time dreams of mine, including finally getting to build bike jumps with the aid of equipment. It was quite an experience to spend several hours behind the controls of the old excavator, and see the vision in my mind come to life in such a dramatic way.
