What Is It That You Do? Part 2

I do believe that we have one of the most unusual jobs around, thankfully not a dirty job, well not too dirty. Since I tried to lay out the nuts and bolts about the work we do, I thought I'd share some of the cool elements, like how what we write and photograph at work... Continue Reading →

Hello and Goodby

Our nutty summer is coming to an end and we are getting back to normal, normal for us.  Josh and I have been bouncing between tours for months now, spending the last two weeks on different trucks; Monday we met back up.  I was in Indy and drove to get him in Springfield, IL; where...

Special Guests

We had a couple of special visitors this weekend, my parents. This weekend took us to Danville, IL and on their way back from my brother's in Indiana a stop by our truck was a must. My mom has had a chance to tour the exhibit before but not my pops. It's not usual for... Continue Reading →

Serious Business

I had no idea how much I missed the road, we just got back out after a month of being stationary. Couldn't believe how quickly life falls back into rhythm. We also did our first set up in a month, a challenge in cold and ice but it went smoothly. As you can tell from... Continue Reading →
