NYC got cancelled this week because of fears with the weather - The good news is that means I'm done traveling for the year!

Next trip early Jan..

Was just out in CA visiting production facility. Had Dennis (Aerial Peek) come out to document the process and got a ton of pics for an upcoming magazine feature. We've come a long way from bottling out of the garage

"Get Sauced-This One's on Us" Vinyl Sauce samples being labeled.

I travel a bit in the southwest region of the country. Here are some shots of what I do.

These are, unfortunately, a few pics of my crane that was flipped into the ocean on the Bay Bridge job.

This another shot of the amount of cranes on the deck. I had 2 crawlers and one RT out there.

last one is a shot of a 440 ton crawler replacing a turbine generator

Had a meeting in West Virginia near DC (hopefully I have a new customer). After the meeting decided to do some sightseeing as this is my first time near DC. Made the hour drive and wow what a place.

I hit beautiful Pahrump and Vegas this week. It was all fun and games until the flu kicked in at about 8pm. It was the first time I've missed work the next day in Vegas with a real flu

Back in NYC this week -

Look at the size of this urban assault vehicle at JFK!

That's some serious shit!

And the driver is loading his AR before he takes off...

I have seen a few threads lately about new topics to start and it got me thinking about all the travel I do with work.

So I'm starting a thread to post pictures of the places we all go while working...

I'm on my way NYC today.
St. John, Newfoundland, Canada two weeks ago.....View of the harbor from my hotel room. Farthest point east on North America.

I've done a gold mine in Senegal in West Africa that was pretty wild country, they'd fly us in and it was a 2 day drive to site.
We got held up at gun point at one of the border crossings once :ekk:
I'm in no rush to go back there, but the guy that's got the contract says he's got another job starting up there soon.

I used to commute 400 mile (7hrs drive) twice a week for 18 months to another mine in NSW.

Short trip to Albuquerque this week. Sorry, didn't get a chance to explore much. Started early and finished late. I did try to stop off at Jackson MMA to see if anyone was training. No luck. Heading home this evening to get out to the river this weekend.

This week it's the big D - Dallas TX...

Omni hotel downtown for a few nights

Image1488324754.828330.jpg

Image1488324767.131394.jpg

The red mobile horse logo is high atop a building in town but they also have one rotating on pedestal right in front of the hotel and also in pictures inside the hotel. Anybody know why - what's the connection?

I always thought a red neon Mobile sign would be cool to have.

There is no way in HELL i could take a 27 hour trip anywhere. I don't know how you guys do it! Hats off to you folks who make these long legged trips.:thumbup:
Just got back on Saturday and I leave again Sunday morning to go back for 10 days. Even though I'm only here for a week, it was worth it to come see the family and be dad for this week. It's all about the big picture for me and light (or pot of gold) at the end of the tunnel, I think about that and the trip isn't bad. In biz class, it's not as horrible.

LOL your business venture is 10 times stranger than that pic.
You should see the political side I have to deal with. Insane.

Here's some action from the last week of the "job"

Quick 72 hour stop over. Wife decided to sit this one out so it's not nearly as fun. Start time is 5:30am every morning, back at sunset, quick beer and start again.

This week it's the Bay Area for a short flight and only 2 days

Been in Houston this week for the Bassmaster Classic. TSA flagged my attempt to smuggle Slap Ya Mama Cajun seasonings back to Phx for some epic gumbo. Had to rig up a condom to protect the goods lol

Sitting here in Midtown ATL and some shmow drives by standing on the pegs of his Yamaha dirt bike - right down the middle of the street.

Why do you ride your dirt bike in the city?

And why do you need to be standing on the pegs while you do it?

Answer - ATL ghetto



Looks like they are ready for Easter though...
