    Okay, who wrote this blog??

    Going down a pass knowing your in control in a hdt a t the posted speed limit is a lot of fun. Going down a pass NOT in control and not knowing if your brakes are going to catch on fire. Fun not so much!!!!!!!!!!!!

    IRT canceled? a little off topic

    OK OK I got it . It was a crummy show .So it wasn't as real as wwe wrestling (ha). But can you imagine a company gives you a truck and your told to take it out and thrash the heck out of it. just to make a show. That's a company that has money to burn.

    OMG next thing you guys are going to tell me wwe wrestling is fake. ha. So your are telling me they don't actually slide trucks around corners side ways launch them threw mud holes and catch air .driving so fast that parts are flying off the truck. and still keep there job. So much for that career. Guess I will stick with driving nails for a living.

    Hm must have hit a nerve. Insult to a real trucker? must have missed something that was insulting . I know somebody who worked for Carlile .He seemed like a" real trucker" to me.

    Ishift not starting out smoothly

    How many people are driving your tuck? Seems like when my dw drives it shifts differently than when I drive. It is like the computer has to adjust to different driving habits. I drive it a little more aggressively than she does.

    Whether it is union or non union I have the utmost respect for any body who works in the construction field it is a hard carrier to take on not only physically but also mentally. Keep em straight level and plumb.

    Problem around here is that we only have one union contractor left locally the rest come from out of town. the out of town contractors come and go . So that is where the unpredictability comes in play. Now here is the catch. because you are most likely a non union contractor you can work for any body and and not have any issues. Probably stay pretty buisy .Being a union journeyman carpenter my hands are tied the union dictate who you work for and where.in order to keep your benefits .

    Sounds like you guys and galls are having a lot of fun over there might make it next year last year could not make it because of to much (and yet I apologize for using a four lettered word again)" work" this year is the exact opposite. Company I worked for decided to retire . They sold all of there tools and equipment. And that was the end of that. They where in business for at least 40 years .I have the truck bed finished should have it on the truck buy next year. That is the problem with construction you cant predict who you will be working for from one year to the next. I have a little over 2 years left til I can retire after that I am going to find something to do that is a little more predictable. you all down there in Caldwell keep the partying down to a dull roar the neighbors up here in central Washington are starting to complain about the noise threating to call the cops ha. Wish we where there. have fun . party on.

    If I got this right for every 100 degrees of heat metal expands 1000s of an inch so with that being said drill a hole threw screw. and take a can off air (you know the kind that you can buy at office depot they use it to clean computers and such)turn it up side down and blow it threw the bolt freezing it . Should cause the screw to constrict enough to back it out of there with a easy out. but you have to work quick .Might use a hot air gun on outside area.

    Shock Removal

    I wonder can a person weld a piece of half inch all thread onto the head of the bolt going threw the shock, make it about 6 inches long slide a piece of pipe just big enough so head of bolt will go inside it . make pipe about 5 inches long throw a 1/2 flat washer of on top of pipe with all thread going threw it install 1/2 inch nut to all thread. Voila home made bolt puller. Don't know may have already been done. might be worth trying.
