Hi ther HYL. Long time no speak. I'll join you in a w0000tbeer, for sure.

But first, you can just bloody well pick up all this food. The carpet is a disgrace. :innocent:

Yeah, sounds good!

Hold on, I got to clean Ghost's mess?! :blink:

I go out for a few hours and it's all changed.
:grin:
Tell me about it...I missed the food fight, and the w00tbeer! :cry: Any mead left?
That's what I get for working late, I guess.

Yes, definitely, I have not even an idea what you are talking about :-)

"Rock" as in "Rock star" or "Rock" as in "Geology". And f the latter, let me know....

Oh yes, the rock truck itself is 40 tons, and can carry a load of 40 tons. I usually haul ore, mine waste, clay and rocks. I'm working at Birch Tree mine right now hauling clay to get to the bed rock so we can blast and start a new pit.

I work 7pm to 7am, every day for 40 days straight now, and then I get 5 days off. Nightshift! :wow:

Anyways, the crew are all pretty young guys (Ages being 18 (Youngest employee in all of the company (me)) and up 30ish. A few of the guys decided to try and climb the hole with the trucks, there is about 3 feet of snow and the clay underneath is frozen with a slick ice top. I was sitting in the crew cab waiting to get my truck back from Joel (I was in a Cat D8 dozer) and me and my boss were watching to see who could make it up over the top. No one made it, they all cam pretty close though. So then it was my turn to drive, I backed up over the hill and went from the very top from the one side and then held the pedal to the floor. I made it about 3 from the top and then I slid all the way down and almost rolled my truck. :whistle: Luckily, my superior driving skills took over and I avoided rolling. :innocent: :boggle: My co-workers were stunned I got that far, we decided to have "Rock Truck Olympics". The events include; Hill climbing, Racing, Jumping and whatever other crazy things we can think of.

Last night I found it was possible to get air in a 40 ton truck, so far I've been the only one in the company's history to actually get the truck off the ground and go into the air and land "safely" :boggle:

Here are some pictures of the equipment I operate or have operated.

I will take some pictures of the porthole we are digging and hauling out of tonight, and then you guys can see the tracks going up the hills :grin:

w0000000t! |-)

Haha well thank you!
I am off to work soon and I shall be quite careful!
My girlfriend is telling me the same, she feels something will go wrong tonight, although she isn't sure what will go wrong. So tonight I pass on the crazy driving. :old:

I think you guys need to consider entering your events in the Beijing Olympics. Of course, it might be a bit hard to get those monster machines across the ocean... :blink:

Cool story, honor. I always admire the people that get out and do the real work. :clap: :clap:
