Turning back to the topic, that we will keep discussing until late August, I saw people with heavy machinery smoothing out different campsites last year. It made me wonder if whoever was doing that would offer the service to other camps. I was thinking specifically of you Fishy and all the problems you had in 08. I wouldn't guess how much they would charge (or if they charge), but it could be worthwhile to inquire.

I belive its all based on how much whisky you can donate...and how far along the DPW are. They get the job done first...everything else is peripheral I think.
anything worth doing is worth overdoing..

I'd question how much that would help a person in Fishy's situation
flattening/spreading the humps, don't make the ground solid. In fact, it'd probably make it softer/fluffier.
you'd have to water and compact, to get a hard surface. Unless, the surface is hard, under the dune, and, you can be accurate enough to not disturb the crust.

I'd imagine rolling would help.
but, you'd need to add moisture.
and, with the ground water level so high there, to much action or vibration, would pump water to the surface, I'd imagine.
