Our lead DAs hosted a DAlympics that included events like mopping, dish, juice, and a slalom course. These are all activities we do on a daily basis, only this time we were being judged for speed, ergonomics, and most importantly, style. People were quite creative in that category; someone even pulled out their trumpet on the slalom course.
My friend David took second place and his prize was a boondoggle out to the Pegasus plane crash site. He was able to do some convincing and I was invited on the trip as well. We rode in a shuttle out to the runway galley where we met a man who works in Fleet Ops named Dustin
After touring the plane, Dustin took us back to the runway where asked us if we wanted to learn how to drive a 65,000 pound D6 bulldozer. The answer was of course a resounding ‘yes!’ We ‘helped’ Dustin level out the ground next to berms that they will eventually put all of the equipment on top of for the winter so it is easier to dig out when summer rolls around again.
I’ve attached some videos that hopefully explain things a little better.
I have 5 nights of work left, a day off to transition back to a day schedule, a dag to ‘bag drag,’ and then I fly north! Its so close. Too close. I’m not ready to say goodbye yet.
