Maximum Damage




I did a project in my high school photography class (years ago) called maximum damage. The idea was to break all the rules in the the dark room and see if we could get something artistic out of disaster. Standing over my weather beaten ramp, I find myself reflecting back to that project. We had a heavy snow followed by thawing and freezing. The drastic changes have left my ramp in a near un-skate-able state. It is a wavy bubbly mess. I thought an extra layer of outdoor floor paint would protect the surface... I should have tarpped it. RATS!

Oooo... that looks sad. So much for that extra month of billing huh? Though perhaps that can be parlayed into a reason to roof it, or better yet, garage it!

"...digging out the crawl space under my house!"
Well... you DO own the pie shaped ground below your property that extends all the way to the center of the earth. That's a LOT of property! You're only using the tiny spot on top. If you use only 1% of what you own, you would be digging down about 40 miles. Put a ramp down each side... now THAT would be a MAJOR half-pipe. Build it and they will come... the 8th Wonder of the World!!!! oh-ya!

LOL! ol bean, NOW you're talking! I like the way you think! :) A 40 mile ramp would make Danny ways "megaramp" seem tiny! ;)
