December 30 1800

My friend Bill Mlnarik at the scene of the crime. Excavation for underground utilities is bull work and not for the unitiated. Note the shovels, much of this is hand trenching and no lack of rocks here. There is nothing like digging in 115 degrees let alone dragging the 500mcm tray cable through the ditch. Bending this cable for terminations is something like bending 3/4" reinforcing bar. No tool for this, it is  hands on, old school. Electricians interested in overseas work can apply through the IBEW Local 613 web site. Room, board, and body armor included.
