Wow! It's been a while since I have been on here, and a lot has happened. One employ has been let go and two new ones have joined the team. The crew I have put together right now is one of the best I have worked with.
The Summer was so busy I never really had a chance to stop and do any updating to the blog. Recently, though things have slowed down as they always do this time of year. I also took a job that had us take the truck all the way to Fort McMurray and back, which we managed in 4 days! What a journey! Our last several hundred kilometers saw us on the "Highway of Death" spewing diesel out of a blown fuel line with speeding big rigs on all sides of us! It was all in all a very smooth and enjoyable trip, with a short stop in Athabasca that left us with a problem starting the truck! I had to purchase some ether to spray into the air intake so that the old truck would turn over! It definitely pays to really have your vehicle fully inspected or at least know it inside and out. We were able to surpass this difficulty and make our way home in record time after a nice evening in Edmonton, and a visit with one of my old buddies.
