                    $200M? That’ll barely cover the feasibility study.

                      I’ve done this on many a fence and deck project. We always put a little water in the hole, dumped in the bag, added a little water, gave it a quick stir and moved on. It will pull all the other moisture it needs from the ground. No idea if this works in super dry climates.

                        There are mods here?? Who knew.

                        To answer your question, concrete people pour concrete over dried concrete all teh time. My OCD won't allow me to do that.

                        I have heard of fence guys pouring from the bag into the hole, but have always seen them add some water to it and mix it in the hole. Depending on the moisture level of course. Boy, that sounds like the plot to a bad porno film.

                          There is just nothing quite like the sound those 16oz nearly frozen cans make when you want to sit back and admire the monumental task you've just conquered....or when you just want to look out over your domain at 4.30.....or when the game starts....or when you get excited about grilling....or you just washed your car..... or you're getting in the pool....or went to work that day....or you sat on your fat a$$ and did nothing constructive.....or it's pretty much anyday that ends in a y....
                          PPPPTTTTUUUSSSSHHHH...........enjoy

                              It is a post supporting 3 boxes so I went a little deeper and wider with the hole(that's what she said)...thanks for the confirmation.

                                You could probably just fill it the rest of the way with dirt. A small sack of concrete weighs 60 pounds. But yes you could pour another sack into the hole, bonding isn't an issue. Nd it isn't called drying, the process is a chemical reaction causing hydration.
                                @Concrete Helmet - by the way, the mailbox should be set at 44" to the floor of the box.

                                  Are you sure? I would pay a great deal to have the mod password....and besides I doubt anyone would know....I mean of the current mods 1 is admittedly useless...one is usually 5x more inebriated than me right now and the other is probably peddling his Star Wars action figures on his new Youtube channel as we speak....:headslap:
