How to unlock the Save the Farm achievement

    You have to net $50,000 to save the farm.
    You do this by digging and finding artifacts of various value. To accomplish this, you have to balance a budget of fuel, digger upgrades and explosives.

    There are two core reccuring expenses you will have:
    - fixing the digger from hitting stuff
    - fuel

    To minimize the amount you spend on these expenses, do the following:

    - Dig as much as possible without using the boost. If you are not careful and point the joystick slightly upwards, you will use the boost when you intend on going just forward.
    - Don't try to dig out everything. The deeper you dig, the more valuable artifacts you find. The initial digging should be just to finance the upgrades you need to make it further down.
    - When you dig, make sure you keep a vertical mine shaft completely clear for rocks and dirt so you can easily drop down or climb out without hitting the digger. This will save you time, repairs, and ultimately, you dont have to upgrade the hull. The best way I found to manage this, was to bring a supply of the $100 dynamites and blow up the rocks underneath the digger. Make sure to get out of the way, the explosion will damage the digger.

    - As you progress downwards, be selective of which artifacts you pick. The time and fuel it takes to go up and down with the less valuable items is counterproductive.
