Got word Friday that we got dispatched to head to Galveston Tx.for power restoration. Leaving at noon today from Ceder Rapids Ia. Three weeks of living in my new trailer and it bums me out that I have to leave it back, so I did my second pull and left the trailer in Sheldon at R.V, Central. I have have four things that need attention (minor not worth mentioning) so I'll have Don fix them while I am gone. Don is like an old mother hen with his customers and is real good craftsman on what ever he fixes. I will Put the trailer and my pulling truck in storage there and drive my Jeep back to Cedar Rapids(I tow a jeep behind my trailer) The bosses say we will be gone for 6 to 8 weeks, but I got a feeling that it will be longer than that.I am taking my lap top and if you like I,ll try to tell you dailey how bad it is. I don't now how many hours we will be working but lots of time we work 32 to 40 hours then have an eight hour brake.

Travel safe and be safe in the aftermath --- hope is not that bad where you are. I know if it does not hit where you are, they will "redirect" you to the area that is hit.

Let us hear from you when you get a chance.

If it hits there, plan on flooding. I grew up 35 miles north of Galveston. The whole area is flat from Baytown down to Aransas Pass. Some areas are actually at or below sea level. The first hill I ever saw was a freeway overpass. Your vehicles are gonna need all the clearance you can muster. Take care.
