    Didn't really know where to put this one so here go's;(mods move this if you have a better spot)

    Boss comes up with some off the wall stuff.He gets a job to set a precast cell site building.72,000 lbs and 32 feet long.This building has all the cell phone equipment and batteries in it and a generator set to boot.

    Fun part is the land owners are Nature Lovers (read into that whatever) and threw a fit at the idea that trees were going to have to be cut down.No way for a truck and trailer to even think about getting there.

    After 3 weeks of cussing and discussing my boss decided to do this.King pins welded to a couple of beams and two trucks.

    I'm in the Kenworth.

    They put cell towers in some tough areas to access whith the equipment on some sites.Did you have to help the front truck by putting the Kenworth in reverse on the hills?

    Yes,I had to help and that was a real struggle. That old Pete had an 18 speed and two speed rears and the KW was a 9 speed.I did have to do some slipping to keep from rolling the beams.

    It's always a good thing to have a boss crazier :crazy:crazy than yourself!

    I speak from experience, also had a few who did the 'ready, fire, aim' trick as well.:guns

    I hope you got it moved in one day. Otherwise, show up the next morning and have to figure out again whether you are coming or going...:D

    Seriously- pretty neat thinking there. Way to go!
