              We have to use shoring in Oregon the ground water is so high especially in western Oregon. I remember some jobs where we could not pump water out fast enough (in the summer time) to do the job. I know California is different and I am sure the soil is not as bad as it is drier their. People die every year in Oregon because they did not use shoring. On septic tank digs you have to be in and out of that hole so many times that it's not very efficient. So I know it's a pain and hard to work around.

                  The pictures of Adam are very deceiving. Adam is only 3' tall so the trench is not nearly as deep as it appears.

                    All this debate about Adam in a trench for nothing! You've all obviously been fooled. Rick didn't take the picture, the homeowner did. He took a picture of a gaping hole in his yard with a pipe at the bottom. After Rick got his hands on it, he obviously photoshopped in a picture of a spotlessly clean Adam leaning on a shovel looking down and dreading the hard work to come. Then, he used photoshop to color the white PVC pipe in the picture to appear like brand new clay pipe. Fool the east coast because they're so gullible; show them we do it "old school" here in Cali. Glad to see Adam is ok, but can't believe you all fell for this. By the way, my shirts are only that white the first time I wear them; once the wife gets hold of them...

                      I looked at it the other day when I posted this, now I can't find it. I got there through a link in a bi-monthly email message sent out by OSHA, and when that photo showed up on their website I thought to myself, I have seen that pic somewhere before, and then it dawned on me, it as here I saw it. So I came and found this thread with the pic in it.

                      I will have to search the browser history on my computer at work to find it I guess, can't seem to get back to that page from here at home.
