Four ten hour days in a row makes for long days and wears my narrow little ass out.
I have a very physical job at times and do a ton of walking around back and forth all day on concrete and steel grating.
One guy had one of those pedometer thingies there once and said he was averaging 4-5 miles a day and I believe it.
We don’t wear tennis shoes either.
I have a pair of Redwing steel toed boots.
The other day I was running 1 inch bolts down with a 3/4 drive impact gun.
I took out 24 bolts with nuts and tightened 48 that someone else had already taken out and put back in hand tight, and that was just one small task to get to a bigger objective.
You have to tighten these bolts in a sequence and go around them 3 times for final torque down. Trust me, that impact gun will rattle your fucking teeth out and turn your arms into jelly after a while. I’m just glad it’s not a 1 inch drive impact like I used to have to use to tighten the lug nuts on heavy trucks and trailers with.
We use 24 inch Crescent wrenches all the time and had a 5 foot long pipe wrench out for that job too,
I ain’t no Spring Chicken anymore, that heavy shit wears my old ass out.
On the other hand, here it’s Friday and I’m off today and don’t have to be back until Monday now.
I’m hoping that it won’t take me long to adapt to this schedule because 3 day weekends I can certainly appreciate.
I’m also hoping that I can keep up here, you can also trust me when I say that there are already moments when I want to say fuck it and not post anything because I am tired.
That ain’t the way Blogging works though.
So thanks for your support and we shall see how this all pans out.
After all, humans are some of the most adaptable organisms on the planet.
