    what a piece of work, the guy insults my shirt, my eye and maybe even my mom and then asks me to do a locate all within 90 seconds of jumping from the truck. i felt right at home.

    argos is prolly one of the most enjoyable people that a fellow can be around. he's doing some work near me and i took the opportunity to meet with him and ended up spending around 9 hrs kicking around the job site.

    we located a mainline (and i mean we, he actually made the locate while i bothered him with suggestions) and it was spot on.

    he has one man crew and seems to get on fine with his man Friday, Matt.

    no b.s., it was a pure pleasure to meet argos and i hope to see him in the future.

    BTW, he gave up all the dirt on a few of the members and will prolly blackmail me in some fashion. :laugh:

    what a good day, i have pics that i'll post at a later date. :waving:

    At least you got away with only babysitting him for 9 hours...

    Ski/snowboard trip this winter. Even if you just kick it at the lodging.

    Last we all talked, I think it will be in Montana this year. I'm sure we'll get a thread going.

    I have pics of Jim working. Not only did he get abused, but he also ended up with a shovel. Will post when I get home.

    I haven't met ANYONE, with the exception of Les, Matt, Dana, Peter, and Jim, that I didn't like on this forum.

    Hey, no sweat - I'll introduce you to my ex-wife if you want. . .

    While I have never, and this is no bullshit, been snow skiing in my life - don't forget about me. After fifty plus days in this heat I am ready for some snow and some snow chilled beers.

    You can snow shoe with me. Maybe even a little winter fishing. Won't be that far from some fine fishing. Or we can build a tent on some lake and ice fish and hope we don't catch anything to force us to set down our beer.

    Montana Brewery visit laws
    Only serve 48ozs from 4-8pm.
