I have a temporary fix, right now. I could really leave it as permanent it works, but I will do something better next year. Just want to be able to get some use out of it now.

How about burying a con-x trailer

I have also thought of putting one in the hill side by the swamp but leaving the roof half covered and half exposed , it would make a cool club house for the kids

I have thought of that as well but I like the rammed earth idea much better. A school bus would not hold up to the load if you were to try and bury it. Soil weighs more than water which is around 8.5 lbs per gallon, Y'all live in the South so you don't see the damage caused by snow loads on rooftops, but a rough comparison would be for one foot of soil on top of your school bus it would be like having 20 feet of snow- which is way more than any snow country building is rated for. Your school bus would be squarshed like a bug under that weight. Same problem with shipping containers, but not quite as bad. The tops of those things are not designed to have a load on them, they stack in a way where all of the weight is borne on the sheer walls, not on the flat roof. The soil would buckle it and it would collapse in on itself in due time. I wouldn't want my kids playing in what might become their tomb.

An underground tank would work though, because they are curved and designed for soil loads. I heard of a guy who made one of those (unused) plastic septic tanks into a bunker. Problem with that is oxygen supply though.

How about DoD wants to rent the quarry for experimental submarine use , I thinking ROV's . They want to use our quarry since its so isolated . But nothing is solid yet and I would be very weary of doing business with the fed gov on my personal property

Go for it but charge a gazillion dollars and get paid in advance!

Who knows, they might find that stuff you have been looking for!
