I was even thinking of filling a couple of garbage cans with stones and placing them on the ledge that separates my yard from my neighbors for atlas stones.

Strongman is a lot more than just static strength which you'd find in a PL or OL competition.
Absolutely, which is why with this schedule I'll moving weight 2 days a week. Another thing I need to see about doing is each event/approximation that I come up with on the same day for a few weeks before the contest so that I get past being exhausted from one event and moving into another.

I think that's where I thought of the "zercher deadlift" and I was even thinking of trying to place the bar on the rack pins to approximate setting a stone on a platform.

And this leads me into the reason for this thread... there is 1 gym in town that has some implements, but it costs $30 a month that I don't have for membership, and they said none of their "trainers" know how to use any of it anyways... so it would still be the blind leading the blind if I trained there. Hell, I could pay Brian Shaw whatever his astronomical training rate is and drive up to Ft. Lupton once a week, but again $30 a month is a problem. I'll ruminate on these ideas and see how a week of the schedule above goes. Thanks again, all.
