It is good to be home. It is amazing what a good night’s rest does to ones perspective. I started my post trip posting last night and wow it was so gloomy. Today as I have discussed my trip with folks in the office it sounds like a totally different trip. So I rewrote it.
I set my machine up, removed the sample in time for the tech to install the new bore plug and I was back in the room by midnight. No Biggie!! But this was a trip of highs and lows. As I mentioned last post the trip out weren’t that great, but Tuesday dinner was good and it was great to spend some relaxed time with the guys.
Sure, the cut took a long time and we had to replace the drive shaft 4 times. My heart stopped beating every time it made a weird sound but in the long run I got the sample we needed.
The Turbine, About 24 ft long.
We made it work on the worst case possible bore size, 12 feet up inside a 3 inch hole.
What I dreaded happened but due to some creative planning inspired by the tech working with me we got it done and now I have that nice feeling of accomplishment. I’d dance but that aint pretty.
Thursday morn when we flew out, the tech, which travels A LOT, hooked me up with a first class upgrade.
Turns out to have been a great trip plus on the drive into the jobsite I did see the famous Arch off in the distance.
NO!!! not that one.
Thank goodness for that good night’s sleep.
