A few pics of the Beebe Bridge repair.
During the job I:
learned a TON about steel construction.
networked with a lot of bridge engineers from Olympia.
was told that if engineering didn't work out I could probably work in the steel industry (mostly because of my lack of fear of heights).
heard the life stories of 4 flaggers.
walked about 10 miles a day and lost a pound because of it.
was yelled at by angry people who thought the work wasn't going fast enough.
was told i was a lazy state worker by someone, even while they were heading home to their family, while i was working 14 hour days and hadn't seen Olaf in weeks except when he was sleeping... but that's a soapbox i won't go into again.
Good money. I'm not gonna lie. Overtime is good right now.
Glad it's over for me. Another guy will finish up the last of the inspection this week while I go back into the office and normal life. Nice!
THANK YOU Mom and Dad for watching Olaf AND both dogs for 3 weeks... Hopefully you are recovering.
