Ok so driller came yesterday (with pics)

38 posts in this topic


We're maybe 10ft higher and on the same ridge.

His septic will be on the other side of his lot, and He's the one I'm waiting to close the road so I can rebuild my fence on the other side to reclaim it. He's going to put in a common gate and eventually and electronic opener with clickers for all of us.

 

The plan is for the 3 lots, to remain more of a common compound though there will be fencing to keep the critters under control.

 

critters?

In mindanao the city was drilling a well, but it was a truck with p-t-o on the side.The one i saw in your photo, what turns the drill, the motor is to raise and lower the drill right? So what turns the drill, man power? :scratch_head:

Yep. The drill is really a giant spud bar with winch raising it and dropping it. The other guy turns it. At first, maybe 20ft, by hand. Then in this pic you see they had a very hard wood handle they bolted to the drill:

The guy standing is resting his hands on it.  Now the guy cranks on it with a large monkey wrench.

Sorry to ask again, but were is all the dirt going? I thought the dirt would come out at the top.

After pounding a while they pour some water in and pull the whole drill out which is taking longer and longer.  Then they run a dipper (for lack of a better term) down the hole.  The dipper is about a 5 foot length of 2.5" or 3" pipe with a butterfly valve in the bottom.  That goes down and the guy pulls the rope a few times to get the valve to close.  Originally they were pulling it up by hand but now use the winch.  When he dumps it, it is mostly very runny slurry and he pounds it a few times to get muck and rocks out.  He checks to make sure the valve is clear and then sends it down again.  Sometimes it comes up empty because a stone is stuck in the valve.  Eventually, hopefully soon, he'll pull up some clean water.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace

      Is this normal in the Philippines ? Is this wacko or am I living in an altered state ? My long term girlfriend is getting ready to sign a contract for an unbuilt half of duplex of 26 sq. meters for half a million p. in a small city in Mindanao. Nice fight ensued on Valentines Day. I have visited but will not be moving there for a year and have no idea about buiding costs in the area. This seems way off the chain to me, but what do I know? Any knowlegeable input would be appreciated.

      Very strangely this is not being reported anywhere in the mainstream news. Last nights (Sat) 7.50 from Ormoc to Cebu collided with another vessel not too far from the port of Cebu. Wife's parents were passengers. MIL texted us at home around 9.30pm that they had just hit another vessel while still out at sea. Sadly the collision was at full cruising speed and apparently "rear ended" another vessel, a barge or similiar sized vessel. Almost all of the passengers which appeared to be not numerous, sustained some injuries, but no deaths. The response of 2Go is being slammed by all aboard, with not telling the passengers any updates, to not giving out where berthed info to making the walking injured walk to waiting relatives outside the port. A large proportion of the passengers were asleep at the time of the collision and have sustained injuries consistent from being thrown from a seat, cuts, abrasions, missing teeth, severe bruising etc. It has been said that the 2Go vessel rode up and onto the other vessel. Quick thinking crew on the other vessel tied the two together to prevent the 2Go cat from becoming adrift or possible sinking.

      A friend has an Iphone 5 and it needs a screen, can anyone recommend a reasonable and reliable place to have it done? I may bring it with me to get it fixed for him if it can be done for a reasonable amount
