Looking good. You have a lot of work ahead, but it should be fun. By the way, is that Fleming Field in South St Paul?

Re: 2014 diesel production

I just got of work in the ER, and now have a week off. I was planing on flying to Texas to get my new oil burner (since it has been built for a couple of weeks). Unfortunately, it looks like that is not going to happen. Instead, lucky me gets to move a couple of yards of class 5 rock, and redo a paver patio this week. Working vacation......bummer. Lets hope delivery occurs by the first weekend in October, since that will be the next time I will be able to fly down and pick it up.

Absolutely amazing!! I agree your father looked to be in his element (minus the seat of course).

Had to laugh though "Half my Mom"

Re: 2014 diesel production

Anyone who was having issues with seeing the "tracking" updates on their mobile device, the pages has been re-organized.

It is very quick and easy to check now on all mobile platforms tmk (checked IOS and Android!!)

Impressive to say the least. Enjoyed watching your dad at the wheel. My dad is 80.... Sent him the link as I think he would be equally impressed, and a bit nostalgic too. Glad you posted this, thanks.

Tried that and also tried powering down the iPad. Still doesn't work. Could be because it's an ipad1? I'll try my iphone5 later.
