Rainy Daze

Holy Shit!!! When it rains here you know it! Worked all night in my own truck last night, still rough but much better driving than sitting in the jump seat in the back. Started the shift by falling in the mud, thankfully not face first but it was deep so I was covered pretty good. The truck I was using is a 40 ton and had some issues; needed to put in new water separators before I could start hauling, has a nasty sounding turbo whistle and is lacking power on the hills. It also has a rough ride and the road is getting worse all the time. Had to put it in 6wd a few times (which is fun), it's kind of like spending every night out wheeling... Feeling a little beat up today. Hopefully there will be a truck for me tonight as 4 or 5 have broken down already this week. 2 were being driven by a girl from Edmonton so her new nickname is one-a-day. I think I'm doing an alright job so far, hopefully tonight goes well...
