[Market-farming] Winter walkways

The discussion of pathway weed suppression got me thinking about the opposite, right-here-and-now, problem.
Because I've never gotten around to building a "real" walkway to our outbuildings, we'd always worn out the grass and created a lot of mud in past winters. Last December, I was inspired to lay sawmill slabs ($10 for a 16-foot trailer load) from our driveway to the barn. Very little work, very little expense, good footing, no mud. When the grass started greening up again, I moved the slabs.
I'll admit this is only practical where winter's main precipitation is rain, not snow. And it does invite some "You might be a redneck if..." comparisons when you saw up your sidewalk for firewood.
