soliciting ideas....

...for getting the rocks at the bottom of the stairway to the top of that ravine...

I'll never forget one Sunday when I just picked up 2-5 at a time and carried them up. While an effective workout, not terribly enjoyable.

Faith can move mountains...

i thought your rail thingie was cool... in lieu of something clever, how about putting a few sticks of dynamite down there and hoping the blast launches some up to the top? or maybe have a party with 100 people over - stage them like an old fashioned water line? okok you wanted REAL suggestions... all i could come up with were cartoons!

cartoons are good...sometimes feel like I'm in one when I'm working up an idea...My current thinking involves the rail, a zip line and a windlass (and I'm still talking about stones). A windlass is the same as a capstan, only one is horizontally oriented, the other vertically. I just don't want to spend too much money or exceed the energy value of the lifted stone.
