Don't ask...I am going to set up a Webcam aimed at that backyard....they have several kids, and is sometimes funner than a TV sitcom watching them run around ......

These people chain their dog in the back yard, that has a nice 6' crooked chain link fence (but did not cut, amazingly)

They run around screaming all hours of the night, drawing with sidewalk chalk in the middle of the street at 10pm till whenever.....

all the kids weigh 200+ it looks like, and watching them fight over who gets in the hammoc is quite funny......

Almost as funny as the Redneck Neighbor link....

$60 is what I paid to have mine done. I was told you could drive on it in 24 hours.

Life is too short to ride anything but an R1

You got a good deal. I paid $45 for a two car driveway with no apron (area between sidewalk and street: mine is cement) so a three car driveway w/apron seems like a good deal. I got flyers for $55 and $57 for my 2 car...so don't sweat it!!!!!

Yes, especially when its 90 degrees with heat index of 105.

I'd say what you paid is about right for a driveway of that size.
Now, on to more important things. I talked to one of my friends (yes, the ones I have to pay for ) who does sealcoating and he said about the same thing: 24 hours for a car, 8-12 hours for a bike (just watch the tackiness). IMO, zero hours to drive on the lawn!!

Exactly...




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

i would suspect that it might take a bit longer with this heat and all. and for the price you paid in this heat is def worth it.

You still have time before the ride to build a ramp.

Or get a few people to distribute the weight and carry it out.
