Feb 6, 2008-Windmills on wheels
Hello faithful reader.
You know, this trucking business sure is starting to look like the survey business i was in for 34 years.
A lot of hurry up and wait. Rush out to the site, and find you don't have half of the paper work and or information you need
but start out anyway. Took four loads of windmill bases to Fargo ND last week, but due to the loss of at least 10 hours, waiting for permits and the drivers to tie down the loads properly, we only made it to Hurley Wis., Friday afternoon. Since they could not travel Wis. on the weekend, we were sent home and some US escort drivers took over on Monday.
I should mention, none of this was driver fault, and all office fault, which again, reminds me of my survey days.
Here is a picture of one of the three bases used to make a tower. Gives you a sense of the size of these things
Thanks for listening.
