WOW.... 30 bags ??? please don't tell me you mixed them all in the wheelbarrow ?? If so... How did you keep it from setting up before getting the next batch mixed in with existing ??? looking good so far though...
Thanks guys, No hand mixing, used pop pops cement mixer. It was done as a three man job. I loaded mixer, Tyler wheel barrow to form, my buddy rusty packed and spread. Took about two hours.

Score!!!! Father in law picked me up a control box dumpster diving (oops I mean salvaging). Whooohooo. It was an old fire control box but will work great for this project.
