That's John flipping the bird. lol... He hooked my buddy Troy and I up big time with a ton of restoration work while in the boulder area.

He and his wife are super cool restoration professionals who stay very busy. He's wearing PPE on his left hand, knee pads and irrigation boots. Normally, he's in full PPE.

That picture was taken on the edge of a washed out road. most houses in that area had water up to the ceilings and we worked about a half dozen of them just the week i was there. My buddy troy and i met up near Grand Junction and caravanned the rest of the way to the boulder area. between the two of us we easily had well over 10,000 pounds of equipment and two 50 gallon drums of diesel fuel. I was only able to stay a week. Troy worked the flood for over a month straight.  

Here's a pic of troy and a fraction of his equipment. He and i use to work together cleaning carpets back in 1986.

I know someone that lives in that area. She said it was pretty devastating. She couldn't find anyone to clear her lot of all the debris. I bet that trip bought some nice chirstmas gifts

Working jobs like that is very rewarding, both in income and in helping others. I spent some time in New Orleans after the flood and it was an amazing experience. Too bad hauling all those air movers around aged me about 10 years, pretty hard work.

I do like the smile on the RV laughing
