FatPipe, Trumps FatBike, and Family, For Now??!!

Not that anyone cares, LOL
but this is what's been keeping me off the Pugs, and away from the family for 12 hours each day.
50' long x 24" diameter; with 1.75" of lining in them ; which brings the diameter to 19 1/4" headed for the oil sands of Canada.

I'm the last one in the building to touch these "FatPipe", and they need to look pretty, and be cleaned up, and capped...... and rolled out the door.
Every one you see in the pictures I've touched, with about 100 some odd more to go!! 
I guess working 12's isn't so bad, ya kinda get used to it after awhile.

I'd be foolish not to say to my better 1/2 Cindi..... I LOVE YOU DEAR, and you are the best!!! 



  1. I don't know about you but when I work overtime I buy myself and/or family something nice. The past two weeks I had to work a lot of overtime so I bought myself a new Pug Frame my wife is getting a new dishwasher ha. What are you getting for yourself?

  2. Gotta say, nothing for the wife or I.
    Reference August 10th post; Target Date: August 2012.
    Two XS Mukluk's for the kids!! :) :)
    I'm really looking forward to sharing the dark month trails with our young ones!!
    As of right now, it kind of looks like it'll be two 9:zero:7's, but we'll see how things unfold.

    My AH135 goal is also being put on the back burner for now.
    All good things come to those that wait??!! Lol


  3. Make sure you plan for the Man Trip in March. It will be the first full weekend in March on the North shore of Lake Superior. Also my family and I are headed to Cuyuna one last time this year. IMBA is doing some sort of festival mid October, you should go, it would be cool to meet up and ride.

  4. Oil&Gas...I know what you are talking about!

  5. Your a hard working man, you keep the oil moving. Is that a Big Fat Larry or a Larry in your front tire picture? Looks hugemongus, 100 mm rims?
    Dave The Fat Tire rider over this way. :-)

    we'll see about the "Man Trip", it is on the calendar, but work is going to trump all through spring; but we'll see.
    I've checked the IMBA site, but I don't see anything about going Ons at Cuyuna in Oct.

    A guys gotta do what a guys gotta do..... ;)
    No BFL or 100mm rims....... just a Larry and a regular LM.
    I am looking at the non cut-out Rolling D's and two Larry's in the future!!
