Rent a mini backhoe. I had to do a similar thing about 3yrs ago and the 300 bucks I paid for the day rental was well worth it. Got the job done in an hour or so. Most places will rent you equipment on a sat morning and come get it on mon morning. As long as you only put 8hr or less run time on the machine you will only pay for 1 day.

That's the plan, no way I'm digging it all by hand! Going to run a water line (plastic Pex) and maybe some cat5 in the same hole just in case I want it in the future.

Why not lay a gas line and water line for heat and water

We are doing that to my friends garage, already has electricity, but we are running a gas line for a natural gas heater we are building into the walls, as well as water for a very small water heater and slop sink.

I have oil heat in my house and can get an oil fired heater for the garage for next to nothing. No need to run a line from the house for that, a 55 gallon drum behind the garage would feed it. I am running a water line out there just in case I decide to put in a small slop sink. If I do there are small electric hot water heaters (1 or 2 gallon tank) and fit under the sink that would be perfect.

Thats decently quick for a sport compact FWD car. The 2008+ Cobalt SS/TC actually held the record for fastest sport compact on the Nurburgring for a while. Might not hold it anymore though.
Its a nice car for the money but after i drove an EVO X its definitely gonna be my next car!! AWD FTW!! but the cobalt is a fun car and gets 25 mpg


I like to go HIGH with my RCs!!!

You only get 25mpg? You must have too much fun driving it.

My daily driver is a '96 Nissan Maxima. It isn't a sports car, but does OK with its 6 cylinder motor and 5 speed transmission. My "toy hauler" is a '97 Ford E150 van - much like Harold's but in white. Basically a big box that fits lots of RC, a couple dirt bikes, or a quad for my weekend fun time. :)
