    The back half does because there are electrical parts, but it's legs are hanging down by the tires, so there is no way I can get around the legs and back to the trailer. Plus the middle stuff goes under the upper parts overhang, so I'll have to tarp most of it...

    I will probably be here when you get here, they never got me any permits. She has a helper now, so....

    Pretty sure these TC systems were designed by the guy with the horns and pointed stick.

    No, he's too competent to design such a useless thing.

    You are clearly delusional from all that niceness. Go to bed and hopefully you wake up feeling better LOL

    Loaded, secured and tarped....finally. I would probably still be there if it weren't for @kylefitzy and another SPD driver teaming up. Honestly, this company is more like Moore Freight than any other company (except SPD management knows how to manage their money). They got me loaded yesterday, but it is a jumble of extra pieces added to the big stuff, so it was a challenge getting everything secured....in the friggin snow. Kyle showed up at probably my lowest moment when I was having some serious doubts about being able to pull oversize. We got everything secured, and I plastic bagged the electrical box that was the only reason they want it tarped...and went to bed. When I woke up, I wasn't in such a suckey mood. When the customer opened for the day, we teamed up (along with the shipper and their 2 scissor lifts) to pad my load and get it tarped. Then the 3 of us teamed up to get the other SPD driver's load padded and tarped(sorry, I didn't catch his name)...then we got Kyle's load mostly done, and he finished the final scrapping(no padding or tarping, the lucky dog!!!). This is one of the fringe benefits of working here... teamwork!!! I don't think I could have finished if it weren't for those guys (and the customer's crew with their scissor lifts)...
