Where I go is always a surprise. What I am leading or following can be even more of a surprise like this 190 foot cement bridge beam. SURPRISE!
A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it. George A. Moore
This is how Fall is arriving in our neck of the woods. We have been spending a lot of this month on the road. Sometimes moving just a few miles a day, others doing almost 800 mile round trips. We are doing superloads as of late and are really enjoying the challenge while we continue to find our groove along the road. The drivers we have encountered so far on these loads are incredible, talented, kind souls that just want to provide a service in a way where the public is safe, the load is delivered, and everyone has had fun along the path.
I would have never guessed that moving such a monstrosity would be so easy. We had police escorts and 2 pilot cars per beam. The sky was beautiful and the PA Wilds were in their glory. It was such a pleasure to take this ride that it didn’t feel much like work at all.I had a few preconceived notions when I started this new career and most of them have been debunked already. It is awesome to have real life experiences that create knowledge and wisdom verses assumptions. Two of them were:
- Drivers will be rude, crass, and vain. (Haven’t met a single driver that made me feel uncomfortable.)
- Days would be mundane, a road is a road is a road. (Right? Wrong!)
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust
