    When I get it scheduled I'll probably drive up and drop off the core.

      That's a win.

      Were the winds as high as expected this week?

      Yes they were, tower crew did ground work, threw 6 yards of gravel at base of tower. Next day better but tree went down just above site, lucky I didn't need a chainsaw to get in. Crane came in to change out HVAC unit, tower guys were able to climb and do their punch list.

        Eastern Fall Meet - Hershey Region AACA

        Lots of old stuff but Mopar stuff is definitely priced right. Tim and I spent two days there and did not see it all he went back with the wife on day 3. I had a VA appointment I could not miss or I would have went. If you go weekdays are the best to get deals it seems. Let me know we will meet up.

          No, they're company name is Mastec. They took a job over that another crew failed on for T-Mobile. The guys only labeled the sectors on the previous job, no systems and multiple frequencies so whoever went behind to service the equipment likely was going to take down the wrong equipment. How do you know who CC etc. is?

          It is so big it is hard to explain. Basically in the parking area of a concert hall (hershey stadium) and even more areas. I am so glad I have a friend that vends there to get a break and sit down comfortably.

                I’d like to get to Hershey Saturday for the car show. Probably working though.

                These pine trees couldn't have continued growing in the com site so I dug them up. Same morning these tower workers brought in 6 yards of gravel so good timing, have them in pots now, will see if they make it.

                      That's what I was thinking about. I've got some. Leave to burn up before the end of the year

                          Dam just looked at the weather, pretty much scattered rain all week here. That would suck at a swap meet.
