Boom goes up. Boom goes down. Boom goes up. Boom goes down…

Playing with the new toy…ur…tool…TOOL today.

TOOL.

Wanted to get used to the boom movement/bounce etc…since I haven’t been on a boom truck since my Llamco Electric days…gad…30ish years ago…and that was a squirt boom instead of a knuckle boom…

Anyway, wanted to test it out and practice a bit before trying to use it up against our building on the historic square in Clarksville or the Old Vic, so out to the family farm we went.

Flying low (came down to grab the camera). We kept side extension to a minimum today as even though the outriggers were on hard-packed gravel, it’s been REALLY wet. All “way out” extension was done in line with the truck today.

Flying low.

Flying high (about 80 percent up)

    You gonna put the cats, one at a time in the bucket and take them up?
    Then hold on and hang them over the side one at a time?

    Then the cats will never climb trees, we hope.

    So does this boom truck get red and lime green zebra stripes?
    Just so we see you coming, or going?

    Maybe you going to have more fun than you deserve?

    You know you could lose that truck, in a snowstorm.
    Ah but then you’d rise above the snow and be seen again, right?

    Happy New year especially now that all things
    boom are on the up and up!
