This bad boy has a GPS system mounted on the back so he can mark the spots he tested on our topo. How cool is that?
Professor Joe made this rig himself. He welded the drill to the back. He just toodles around to the next spot and drills down.
Now he asks the dirt sample hard questions like, "What is the capital of Yugoslavia?"
Not really. He just looks at it and makes sure it is suitable for a septic tank drain field.
I'm left wondering, though... is getting The Golden Shovel Award on a soil test a good thing?
Oh, well, as long as we pass, I guess I can let that be one of life's great unsolved mysteries.
