    Feels like I have not stopped all day...

    So this morning I picked up the volvo from the pool job my other helpers dug for me yesterday.

    Then after seeing all of ARP's powerline clean up jobs I decided to go do one myself!

    So after years and years of people dumping brush on the right of way it has to be cleaned up and hauled away... I bet he wishes he had a volvo lol....
    All brush will be loaded up on the tractor trailer on monday.

    Hey! That kind of pool looks familar! My favorite! Anyways, I couldnt believe they would bring in that big of a machine to dig a pool, but most the time on ours we can barely get the backhoe in with out some modifications to the property.

    I was just starting to load the last load with the volvo when she blew. lots of hydro fluid all over the place, what a freakin mess! so needless to say it takes a long time to load the tractor trailer with the mini!
