    If you can, put the power 6"-12" deeper and flag it. If not double flag the trench on top of the utilities, cover 12", flag the shit out of it, go up another 6" and toss in metal cans every little bit so it can be found with a metal detector then finish it off with your favorite flavor of dirt.

    When I'm digging and, whether I suspect there's utilities or not, I really like to see color change in the dirt and always look for it. Sometimes it's sand and sometimes it's pea gravel, but it lets me know something is/was there and we stop and probe or scratch around with a shovel. I'll use a wooden handle to probe. I'd hate to get lit up with a metal probe. We have some 480 direct buried so not much is in conduit unless we're the ones putting it in.

    That’s one needle in a haystack you don’t want to find accidentally

    What we would do is lay corrugated iron about 12” above the direct burial MV cable and then red caution tape about 12” above that and then yellow tape 12” above that. A JCB don’t care, but at least it may pull up enough to get someone’s attention. Quick and dirty in east africa

    I almost finished
    well I had to bust through some limestone shelf’s along with rocks and it’s a little over a foot deep. I need water to be deep for winter and deep for summer to have cold water.

    Red beans, chili powder, onion, jalapeno, bell pepper, garlic, diced tomatoes, dehydrated tomato, tomato sauce, chili mix, salt, bacon, sausage and hamburger....has a little bite to it. Lift the lid and you know it'll be interesting. It's a really slow heat.

    It's subtle but lingers. I tasted it 15 minutes ago and I can still taste it. But it doesn't have an immediate heat above subtle. I've never made a batch quite like this one. And I've never put bacon in chili either. I do use burger and sausage in a few other concoctions though. I almost threw chorizo in also...maybe next time.
