Hard rock

No, despite KAIRA being a Finnish project, this is not an article about the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest. Instead, the title of this post is a reference to the issues we'd encountered with the cable ducts being crushed. Part of the problem seemed to be that the ground itself is rocky, uneven and difficult to work with.

Having cleared out the trench and removed the crushed pipes, we then decided to try to level the trench base down and get it flatter and deeper.

Despite some solid digging, we were having trouble due to some moderate sized rocks in the ground. These took a lot of work to prise them loose to shift them away.

Stuart and Marko roll over a rock. They make it look so easy.

Actually, that one was a bit heavy, so we brought in the Land Cruiser to drag it out.

Stuart and Arttu stand clear as we haul out a larger specimen.
A bit further back are some earlier hand-extracted prizes!
