back in my poorer days, i used to scour my farm for rocks to fill un ruts in my swampy driveway. here in wv there is no shortage of rocks all over the hillside, creeks, old rockpiles where original owners cleared fields, ect. i hauled them in a cart behind my 4 wheeler. lots of hard work, but free driveway material. now i can travel my driveway all year round, thanks to free rocks. now there is a thin layer of gravel on top to smooth everything out.
