I don’t want to spoil anyone’s ideas so I won’t share specifics on what I was thinking, but it is along the lines of ‘digging’ up some behind the scenes intrigue on specific LPBW episodes or ‘unearthing’ some hidden facts, like what is the real deal about...?
With that, I am inviting you to comment and/or email firstname.lastname@example.org subjects you would like me to delve into and any specific questions you want me to ask about that subject. Ideas don’t just have to be centered around Matt either. Give me a good reason to poke around and get the scoop.
A little more about dirt:
In early March Intel corporation begun construction on a very large expansion of one of their Hillsboro plants. The expansion and Intel’s training and innovative education plan is what brought Presidient Obama out to Hillsboro. Here is where Matt comes in; On a large piece of property west of the Intel site (not his farm), he has constructed a dirt receiving operation where the excavated dirt from the Intel site is dumped and utilized to build up the property. Dirt can be cut throat, there is big money at stake and his is not the only drop site for the dirt, there are 2 or 3 others. Hundreds of trucks hauling dirt are all over Hillsboro (probably making some locals scratch their heads wondering). To say time is money is an understatement. It is all about timing at the dump site. It is a laborious dance of loaded trucks in and unloaded trucks out with back hoes, track hoes and loaders moving the dirt. This project would be a huge undertaking in dry summer weather, but the rain has been relentless making it much more of a challenge and has created a few dump pad and road maintenance issues that shut down the flow of trucks (and money). With all those guys working long hours, there’s been drama for sure, screaming and yelling and even a meltdown or two. It is kind of like Ax Men, but instead of logs it’s dirt. You could call it “Dirt Men” and at the end of the season, which is coming up soon, we will see which site took the most loads.
