I need to move these rocks by hand, with no car or spending any money.How can I do that?Oh, and the distance is 10 kilometers.>whyI'm building a cabin in the woods and the challenge is to do it by myself, by hand, and for free.
>>2620873same way egyptians built the pyramids, sonic levitation.
>>2620873split em with wedges and carry the pieces in a wheelbarrow
>>2620873ezpz>build yourself a strong pallet with wood you find in the forest>gather all rocks you want on the side of the highway>strap these rocks onto the pallet>hitch a ride with a trucker, wear knee caps if necessaryyou can build a cage with rebar wires if you have a little bit of money or find some for free on craigslist
>>2620887How easy is it to split literal rock or shape it with a chisel?
>>2620902Pretty sure it's doable with wedges hammered into it to form a crack, you would need to seek a recourse on the specific technique, I know they have a method for it. But yeah you just need wedges and a hammer.
>>2620873Cabins are made of wood from 10' away.
>>2620909Obviously you've never hand-built a cabin with one-ton boulders you carried from ten kilometers away.
>>2620920I built a cabin using 1.5 ton boulder that was 25km in the woods. Its not impossible if you know what you are doing.
>>2620873Start an urban legend that says the first person to move the magical stones 10 kilometers away will find the mysterious pirate treasure map. After stones are moved, magically find a "treasure map" for them
>>2620873Use a sledge in winter.
>>2620873Stone boat and some sort of draft animal. Or, you know, find rocks that aren't miles away.
>>2620950these rocks are special, they are married to the op
>>2620950>>2620951OP here. That area has rocks that are already perfectly shaped to make the foundation for my log cabin. And they're nobody's
>>2620963They belong to whoever owns the land.Doesn't matter anyway, you won't do it.There's a good chance you won't even remember it when you sober up.
>>2621031>Doesn't matter anyway, you won't do it./diy/: Doesn't matter anyway, you won't do it.
>>2620963>10kmCanada or Europe?>That area has rocks that are already perfectly shaped to make the foundation for my log cabin.>by hand, with no car or spending any money.Forget it. Use material within 500m of where you want to build. 1km if it's someshing small and easy to transport like rocks up to 10kg. Don't work yourself to death
>>2620873>with no car or spending any moneyso you can't even go and buy a hatchet to knock down the trees that are all over your rocks?
>>2621037sums up this board pretty nicely
>>2620873Someone leaves you perfect building material and you want to move them.Clean the rest of the shit and figure out how to build something with those rocks. Split them, move them around with a long pole for leverage etc. You will need to buy some tools to split them. Trying to do this without money at all is silly unless you have some pals to help.
>>2620889most reasonable answer
You need horses, cows or slaves at least
>>2620873They look maybe 1/4" by 1/2" or so on my phone -- which is the only scale you've given me. Should probably just be able to carry them in one hand.
Build the cabins foundation on top of the rocks using that jap technique
>>2620887This is the way. Assuming you don't have power, get a battery operated hammer drill. Also a set of feathers and wedges. Drill holes along the break line, drop in feathers. Hammer each a strike or two until it cracks. Repeat until you can move it.
>>2620873Go buy the longest prybar you can find. Shove the pointy end in between rocks and pull on the other end. Start on the lowest/most-downhill rocks and work uphill. You'll be amazed how much shit you can move.>source: unstacked a hugeass pile of logs this way
>>2620873Great, another fucking "tell me how to do something, only I've imposed a bunch of arbitrary rules that make doing it pretty much impossible" thread. Fuck you and everyone like you.Most of those rocks are probably in excess of 800 pounds. You're not moving them 10 kilometers by hand, with no vehicle, and with no money spent. It's simply not going to happen. If you already know this, then you've made a pointless thread just to fuck with people. And if you don't already know this, then you're an imbecile that's not worth helping.
>>2620879>same way egyptians built the pyramidsJews
>>2620873a wheel barrow - a 2 wheel dolly - its called get off your lazy ass and get busy, sitting in front of a computer isnt going to get anything done ,
>>2622474only simple minded small people would say it cant be done or just lazy MF like you , it can be done its called a hard days work which you probly never did a days work in your life , i bet i could do it better safer faster than you and cheaper because i really work for a living not sit behind a computer all day , it can be done now go fight a war you lazy bastard
>>2621376the pin head has spoken, slaves ?? really- you need to be checked off ,
>>2622293dills cost money - feather wedges cost money , its in the wood so no power damn your stupid ,
>>2620873here is a really simple idea - try using the materials to build with instead of buying shit and wasting time and money getting ride of good stuff some would love to have ,
>>2621170And accurately. Setting absurd preconditions ensures YWNDI.
>>2622663>it can be done its called a hard days workPost precisely how to move them given OPs input conditions or KYS.
>>2622668Your next option is fire. Start a fire around each stone and feed it. The stone will get hot and break or become easy to break with a sledge hammer. If you can't make fire, you're too damn dumb to be working outdoors.
>>2620873You will have to provide a lot of blowjobs to accomplish this without spending cash.Why do I bother posting? OP passed out from drinking their first beer and forgot this thread exists.
>>2621031How dare you, I will NEVER be sober.
>>2620873>I need to move these rocks by handMove them by hand then. It's easy enough. The Mormons carried their shipping containers by hand across the Andes when settling Weehawken.A stout rope and good shoes are important, but they're always important.
