Thanks, I'm one of the few hard heads that refuses to go to an automatic transmission... I may be a little bit slower but that's ok... Once I get the launch sorted out, and consistent, she'll be plenty quick...We are not done yet either...

Brandi is safely back in Corey's hands, and I'm headed out to work in a couple of hours...

When I get back it'll be time for dial in runs... Those should be lots of fun as well...

More to follow...Four fun filled weeks in Mexico on a rig, and my relief told me we may be hanging off and pulling away from the well for a tropical storm this week... Oh joy...

I'll be back in touch after I arrive on the rig sometime Monday...

You are such a good friend.

WTF... It weights 34,000 lbs, do you want that at it's closed up 55 foot length, or do you want it at mid stroke, or do you want it at it's fully scoped out length of 92 feet... WTF...

At 55' it would be 618.18 lb's/ft or 34,000 lbs...
At 73.5' it would be 462.58 lb's/ft or 34,000 lbs...
At 92', it would be 369.56 lb's/ft or 34,000 lbs...

It friggín hangs vertically, WTF difference does it make...

I'm not so sure it works that way, but Corey and I have a few tricks up our sleeves yet...

We'll take him, but we need to educate him on how we deal with unannounced people's arriving at our residences in the middle of weird hours...
