I was talking with a friend the other day and she remarked on my comment about driving a dump truck so I thought I would take some photos and post them here so you all could go to work with me. Kind of a "ride along" of sorts.
|On the road. The view from my seat. Luckily no traffic now.|
|Entering the fill site for the dirt.|
|This is my truck. It's a bit dirty and the wheels and tank need polish, but it gets the job done.|
|My friend, Elaine who works at Diablo Valley Rock. She's way cool.|
|Back to Walnut Creek to load the culvert.|
|I had to back up the walking trail quite a ways. There is a ditch on one side and the canal on the other. Not much|
room for error. When I got there, they fired up the excavator and loaded the culvert in my truck.
|This is the "box" that is replacing the culvert. I think there will be a crossover for the bikes and|
joggers. Lots of walking traffic. People with their kids in strollers, dogs on a leash and bicycles.
So now you know what my day is like. And why I come home and play with pictures and work on the computer. My mind races every day to finish my work day to come home to play. Of course, I make sure to do the best I can at work - hey, it puts beans on the table!
I hope you enjoyed your ride along. I wish you all Happy Trails until the next time....
