Yes, the old drain was shot after 60 yrs. We are just tearing out, and pouring the concrete back. Plumbers are installing the drain. They tried to set this up as multiple phases, which would have spanned over 2 months. I proposed the road plate cover, and we can do it in 2 weeks while never disturbing there service capabilities.

Built frac equipment. Went home and now the boss and I are on a frac flushing and greasing valves. In this instance I’m the boss and he is the hand.

Replaced the leaking and corroded copper pipe for a shower that was only installed approximately one year ago by a drunken plumber. Looks like he couldn't get the solder to take because a small drip of water coming out of the pipe. Gave up and threw a sharkbite valve on it and a cap at the bottom. Along with the leaks there was excessive flux corrosion too. I don't know how this guy got paid for this sloppy job. If you know how to solder properly then a small drip leaking past the shut off valve is not that hard to deal with. Had all the crap removed and new copper soldered in in under an hour.

Tomorrow I get to start putting the shower wall back together when it's dry

That guy used enough solder for the whole house. Nice joints yourself and for wiping them too.

Took a new job. I never was very happy doing small dirt job and really miss the big dirt jobs I did in Socal. There just ain't that scale of work here in SE Texas. I got turned onto one of the few companies that moves a lot of dirt in this area. Nice to really enjoy coming to work again. My crew came with me and is pretty happy too.

Got a new dozer today with a winch. Never had one before...been trying to find something to try it out on without looking like I'm just totally fucking around.

Good luck with your new job Dozer, new jobs always make me nervous. Hope it all works out well. So far it looks like you are off to a good start

Dozer, about the most dirt work you will find in SE texas is probably road construction right now. Houston to TexArkana is huge highway project. Outside of that, timber companies fixing really really screwed up logging roads. Now that could be fun and might require that winch to get you out of some of the slop holes those guys make.

If you ended up in one of the lignite mines they move lots of dirt for getting to the stuff, then its on to reclamation.
