I am pumping a million gallons of gas into this ship and Bob is hauling wood from ****...he lands to refuel and tells me he has a light oon the dash...fuel pressure...I tell him to shut down and when things are quiet I tell him to put on a boost pump...pump is running ...light is on...we all know what that means...I tell him to keep on truckin and I will have to pull the right fuel pressure sender out when we quit...I tell him to burn up as much fuel as possible as I will be going into the fuel cell on the right side....to be continued.

I get the switch out...clean the sliver of wood out...bolt it all back together....jump into the truck and drive down this fu##king sh$t of a road trying not to go over the side which would be a nice 5000 foot tumble to the bottom...get back to the hotel at 2 in the morning so I can get up at 4 and do it again...when I got back home I was asked how I liked making the big bucks...I told them to get stuffed!!!!
