I can only imagine. We use ALOT of water to  keep the dust down... and thankfully my AC is solid.

We used a lot of water too but we dumped it on fields that had ash dumped on them for years. That stuff was at least a foot deep and like talcom powder in consistency. Water really only helped on the field roads.

it's been august since this thread saw activity. I'll bite.
recap for me, the wall ended, we were only subs, ANTIFA showed up, armed, and since our section was almost done; it dropped to the nepotism crew to let it finish.
Came back to Idaho, and then went and fought forest fires, the August Complex in the "marijuana triangle" of Cali, Covelo area.
Then went to PRide, INC, another trucking outfit.
Left them, poverty spec wages, and went to a local outfit here in Twin, great money, new Kenworth, plenty of home time.
Wife has been fighting against masking and other things. Fallen in with Ammon Bundy, and his fight. Got her ass kicked by the police, about a month ago. Hurt her pretty bad. She literally was standing in the crowd, no violence. Doesn't pay to be white and right, I guess.

Some pics, cause this forum needs more pics.
(wife needs me on an errand. more upon return)

more.
I was a "chipper boss" on the fire. Was responsible for running the diesel-powered tow behind 60's era chipper.
Had to make the sojourn to Slab City. Interesting mix, slightly jealous of the ultimate freedom-0 desire to join them. (Into the Wild inspired this trip for me)
Trump Boat parade
what we replaced, which were Army/USAF runway panels, used in the Pacific Islands in the 50's.

More of the wall, some random trucking shots.

Hey Clyde,
This thread (and lots of other things around here) has slowed down quit a bit.   Since DD4LifeUSMC died lots of the daily posts here have subsided. 
Nice Photos as always.     When were you in Ft. Sumner New Mexico?   I spent quit a bit of time down there up until last July when the kid moved back to Colorado.   He lived just northwest of Lincoln New Mexico.

it was a weekly thing for a while. My lane was Twin Falls to Temple, TX, and back. Those are about a month old, the Ft Sumter ones.

Yeah, Steve was needed on here. We all miss him.
What's going on today = for my part I just finished splitting next winter's fire wood. Sore back bone.

And Sam, miss his ramblings. Johnny was a pleasure as well, opinionated, but a pleasure. lol Guess these things are really a living and breathing thing, that grow, and change, and morph. As well, as each trip around the sun, could mark our last.
