Well I'm sitting here on my @$$ today without a job, figured I'd stir the pot here a little. Good news is that things are finally picking up (it's August, but good news nonetheless) and I'll probably be back to work within a week. Dispatch sent out 15 people this last week, I'm optimistic I'll be back soon.

Just started thinking though. There are a lot of us on here who run equipment for a living, some who do it part time, etc.. Just curious who's run what. For those of you who are HEF members, there was a thread like this on there. I suppose I'll start it off.

Most of my time has been on backhoes (case) and excavators (deere/hitachi, and kubota). All the other stuff are things I may have used on small jobs or just played with, no serious operation expect for the trackhoes and backhoes and a few skidsteers.

That's all I can think of for now.
