Well week two of my journey has come and gone.
So far I've put up tents, loaded vehicles and done some hands-on work, but nothing gave me more of a workout or left me feeling as sore as a four-hour quad bike ride on Sunday.
After a busy two weeks of work, Jim (Nor-Val Rentals owner) decided it was time to show me the area that Nor-Val Rentals services from a different perspective... one that didn't involve sales calls to construction sites. Climbing through bear country over gentle and not so gentle terrain we rode our quad bikes all the way to the top of Mt. Mara which provided a spectacular 360 degree view over several regions.
Back to work on Monday saw us on the road to Vancouver to collect some equipment. This trip gave me the opportunity to drop in and visit both Star Rentals and Pike's Rentals. Thanks to Rob Potter of Star Rentals and Karyn of Pike's Rentals for their time. I enjoyed visiting the different operations.
The next big item on the agenda is travelling to the ARA Leadership Conference in Chicago later this month. I am hoping, fingers crossed, that we'll find time to go quad bike riding again. You know what they say, "All work and no play ..."
