Did not know if you were a crane operator also or just a dirt guy.

If you know what a 8750 dragline is, we are planning a move on one of those (again) in Louisiana. So far have moved 1 in New Mexico, 1 in North Dakota, 2 in North Texas (i think we did 3 total between different mines), 2 in South Carolina, and now the same one again in Louisiana making it 2 there. They are all different machines the 8750's ate the big ones though.

Just dirt. I had the chance to start running cranes in '07 when I built the Galveston Causeway, but I made the mistake of not taking my employer up on the offer.

I forgot Cat was making 8750s now. That would be neat to see. I worked in a small mining operation the biggest we had was O&K RH120 excavator.

Do y'all handle all the logistics of the move and setup or just the bigger pieces?

Oh, Im the "master of all trades" in our family. Its all on me except for the finishing. I just dont like doing it anymore. My wife is the painter and detailer.

Total redo of our bedroom. I work on it when I get spare time. Thats why it'll take a few months. I warned Roni I wasnt going to rush any of it.

I only dislike concrete, drywall, and paint at this point. However Im about to retile a good bit of my house, and I have a feeling I'm not going to be a fan of that too...

I cant finish drywall to save my life. No lie.

My wife Roni, on the other hand....that woman has an eye for finish work. Thank God.

I was designing my circuit diagram today, have to remove two wall plugs, add three others, wire the new closet for lighting and change the ceiling light box and switches due to the door move......then she comes in the kitchen where Im working and says, "Id like to change the living room ceiling fixture spot and add another ceiling box over the stairs, too." Its below our bedroom, so while the floor is torn up.... Ugh.

This is my life.... I guess I need my own thread like Zach.

I helped a friend install Ethernet in his house. Got 20 drops over the last 2 days, want to get 8 more tomorrow before I fly home. So sore/tired from crawling around under the house. Makes me glad I don't do this for a living, I'd die. Or I'd get ripped, one of the two.

We provide the equipment for moving them assembled. They are being moved between operations. When we planned the first one a few years back, it was a 7 mile move. The machine could do the walking itself in about 7 days, however it required federal road permits to make the road wider, 4" of soft fill on the entire path, and substations about every mile so there would need to be a lot of power lines installed. They say draglines walk 30+ miles a year. Most of the ones we look at only walk 9' per step (about 90 seconds per step).
