Laser Level
13 March 2005.
Next, we set up the Craftsman rotary laser level that Randy got for Christmas. It is supposed to be accurate within a quarter inch at 100 feet. The level has a laser on a rotating head, a couple of bubble levels and a mount for a tripod.
After setting it up on the tripod, we adjusted it to as near to level as we could get it. Then we used the fine adjustments on the level itself to finish setting it.
The laser can rotate on its own, or you can manually rotate it. We found that manually rotating it worked best in the daylight, as the spot was much brighter than the line produced when the motor spins the head.

LittleHouse – Redigging the Piers

Arrival
12 March 2005.
This is how the site looked when we arrived and set up camp.
The site survived the torrential rains that have continuously doused the area since last October. There were no signs of significant washout on our property. It appears that the washes did their job just fine, releasing it over a broad area.

This area of Nporthern Arizona has received about 16 to 18 inches of rain since last fall. Thats about 3 or 4 times the normal rainfall. Many of the roads had washed out or been mudded in.
It is good to finally get back.
