    What's the longest you sat and waited and got paid?

    I just drove by a rest stop again that has the same 4 rigs hauling those long wind mill blades. They've been there a week!

    I figured you were probably still sore about that one, but that’s why you seemed like the best one to answer the OP’s question.

    Yes I am serious plus an. Additional 2 weeks when the ship was late. I did stay in a hotel in Brownsville for 17 days and a few nights in Wichita Falls but mostly we all stayed on our trucks. I left home Jan 24th to start the last project and stayed in the truck all but 5 nights until early May.

    The easiest way to think about it is - the nose of my truck on the goal line and the tip of the tail on the opposite 8 yard line. Or my inner bridge is to regular freight trucks with 53’ trailers end to end (inner bridge 148’ or so)
