I thought he would fit in well here. Most of our posts are rambling thoughts. :green: He would give the HOEs pause anyway.

Too bad Liu is not here anymore. She would amaze him. Or....maybe he would amaze her. :lol2:

If that's the case, I won't invite him buddy. But, I have to admit that his threads sounds like random HOE threads here. And he would get more responses here (even with the few of us) than he does on the lineman site.

How long will this job take? How many of you are on the crew?

We haven't realy started it yet We have been using the helicopter to tidy up the last job.

We start dropping the new poles ( 120 ) up the mountain next week... Wens and thursday .... We were supposed to travel home on Thursday morning,,,, so we've had to book extra flights " now on Friday ". They are giving us the money back for those extra flights.. But it's still one less day at home... :(
We've (at the moment) the original 5 Irish lads a Scotish guy whose a linesman/ digger man .. And a scotish ( ex army ) young guy that's our apprentice ... He's off for awhile with two broken fingers... Closed them in his car door " at home" last week.

We will be on this job till christmass break... Then we've a few other small jobs ...... After those they are talking of us going out to Stornaway... Google Stornaway ...... And you will see why it's not a great place for us to work... Getting back to Ireland every other weekend would be a nightmare.. It would entail two flights.... And the ones off the island don't match up with the ones to Ireland at all..
We are hopefull that it might change....
That's if we are still here.... Haven't seen the new contracts yet..... Sounds like they want us to work 5 days a week mon to fri.... No weekend work but that means in real terms a big wage cut and only getting home late fri night and leaving Sun to get back...

If that's the case. We will be looking to go to other company's. ( I will any way ) :(

And when it's Bad, it's very bad! You are from one extreme to another on your jobs Bren. Don't envy you. You have to love this work for sure at times.

Love the work ... Can't stand the B.S. that goes along with it...

But I reckon all jobs have the B.S. factor in there somewhere.. :(
