I've got about 150' of dirt 'road' between my house and barn. Over the last few months, it has become rutted and VERY muddy. My [4wd] truck gets through it OK, but in a couple of week I'm going to need to pull a trailer with 1200 lbs of pigs in it through this area. Not going to work as things are now. Maybe if we had a hard freeze, but the long-range forecast isn't encouraging. I'm looking for ideas for making this area passable for this situation. Any excavation is pretty much out of the question - wrong time of the year both logistically and financially. My current thought is to apply a couple hundred or so bales of mulch hay/straw which would mix in with the mud and hopefully create a sort of adobe mix that would provide a more stable and smoother surface. Anyone have any thoughts on this or any other solutions?
