    Was watching an old rerun of Mythbusters.
    Saw this episode where they used several 40 ft containers
    to make a ramp for the JATO car.

    I believe Scotty Chapman cut the containers to make the ramp using an oxy-fuel set-up.
    Miller Dynasty 350, Dynasty 210 DX, Hypertherm 1000, Thermal Arc GTSW400, Airco Heliwelder II, oxy-fuel setup, metal cutting bandsaw, air compressor, drill press, large first aid kit, etc.

    Call me the "Clouseau" of welding !

      If you could het a couple of JATO rockets strapped to it you could maybe get it dislodged and moved closer to a trailer.

        Right now nothing is going to happen with this. After speaking to the person in charge it was agreed that just leaving it for now is the best option. She will continue to look for funding and see what happens. If something changes she will reach out.

          Cut it up in pieces with a torch and sink it all in the mud.

            What might you do, try to winch it out of the mud? CA guy could smooth the way a little, plank across the creek and maybe even make some kind of cart and a couple sprouts or men could tote it out in a week. I would flame cut it and well worth using S or better bottles. I might work on the condition we improve enuf to be practical and get a garden type tractor in with a small trailer and sell this as a very ecological solution. I would say a guy could torch it to handle in a week without killing himself. Cost around 5K,,, thats not the charge but foreskin and a couple men. and some consumables.

              Paint and rust hard to scrap with a torch. I took few minutes and plasma scrap instead of hauling it while out to the pile that eventually has to be moved anyway. Lately not worth the juice to cut it into shorts but it gets out of the way. Click image for larger version

                I agree it wouldnt hurt a thing. I would do it for 10 large too. Might bring a cable and couple cumalongs and make sure the miud could drain, cut it if I had to and roll it over with an anchor to the big tree. The terrain looks similar to a lot of places here. Sometimes the easiest way is some work. Some of those outfits have volunteers get real satisfaction from working llike sled dogs, get them to make an event of muleing it out with a pot luck dinner in the middle. How far from the site to the creek bed?

                  They’d have to pay me enough to retire on before I’d cut that up and carry the pieces out! Is that REALLY the only work available where you live?

                    No, plenty of all kinds of work but I do anything and everything. I will at least look at all jobs, I can always say no. Sometimes it's just for the challenge, not always about money.
