6am——– This morning, I still don’t have directions for this military base that is about 100 miles from here. We will make our way up to it and hopefully get an answer when I call.
Saturday started at 5am and we were out the gate by 5:40am. We had about 400 miles to run before I could unload and I unknowingly told the shipper that i would be ready to load at about 2:30pm………. I certainly didn’t know if that would work or not but it was a good starter that maybe I could ask for extra time if need be………. wind and more wind but finally arrived at the consignee about 1 :30pm. All of the guys there just started up two fork lifts and informed me that I should drive out from underneath the generators one at a time as they lifted them up. One on each side…….. No problem, I was out of there in about a half an hour……… Having called the person that would be at the drill site (oil) , about 100 miles away, for the next load, he said he would meet us at a Cenex station and he would direct us out to the site….. AS we wove our way up the mountain, one place on our right had given away and I was hoping they were going to fix it before I came back down……….the road base looked alot like sand and that may be soft. Coming up to the top (what a view) I rounded the site and parked while the boom truck started to pic up the two counter weights and boom (2 pieces) that would be loaded onto the bottom deck and tied down…………
I promised a pic yesterday and didn’t have time or a imperfect connection when I did, so today raced by like yesterday and we still haven’t had dinner……..
