And Now- The Rest Of The Story
So,as I was sayin' I went to Greensboro yesterday morning and came back and went to Dillwyn and picked up a load of kyanite going to Chester,W.V. I should have delivered it today,but Todd told me to go to the doctor and deliver it Monday. So I did,except for the going to the doctor part.I've had a sore throat on one side all week-hurts all the way from my ear to my neck on the left side. It hurts so bad when I swallow I couldn't even sleep Wednesday night.I went to the store and got some Sudafed,Sucrets,Chloraseptic and aspirin so I hope that'll get rid of it. My son,his wife,and Jeff all had a sore throat recently,so I don't know what's going on.
Now,back to the jobsite adventure- 5 of us loaded 60' concrete bridge beams in Bristol,Tn. and took them to Surry Co.N.C, near Mount Airy. We got off of I-77 at exit 93,turned west,then turned on a little skinny road that was not big enough for a truck. Then we came to a dead end and had to turn right off of a narrow bridge onto an even smaller road. Followed that to another dead end and had to turn right,then back up almost a mile to the bridge job. Had to back across another bridge with a 90 degree turn as you come off it,then around a couple more curves before getting to the jobsite.Then we just backed onto a temporary bridge over the creek and got unloaded.The beams had to be set in sequence,so we unloaded in the same order we got loaded. I took some pictures of course...
hope I get 'em in the right order,but here goes-1. waiting to get loaded, 2.coming to the first narrow bridge,where we had to turn right at the end, 3. the curve coming off the second narrow bridge that we had to back around, 4. still backing up, 5.still backing up 6.still backing up 7.waiting to unload-i'm first in line,which means I was last to unload 8.first truck empty,pulled around to front-notice how narrow the road is! 9.sitting on the temporary bridge,waiting to unload 10.the dead beaver in the mill pond,before we got back to the bridge where we had to make a hard left onto on the way out 11.turning onto the bridge 12.totally unrelated,but I liked it-this is on rt. 250 in W.V. somewhere south of Moundsville.
