  • Ruby Pipeline Starting Up

    The Ruby Pipeline project is ramping up, and may be an opportunity for some of you guys looking for work. http://www.rubypipeline.com/

    It's a proposed 675 mile pipeline of 42" natural gas through Wyoming, Oregon, Utah and Nevada. Here's some pics of a staging area near Elko, Nv.









    Thought it might be of some interest.

      The pipeline going in through north central Arkansas is getting laid out right now too. It's pretty impressive when you cross it drive 100 miles and then cross it again. You pipeliners have to be tough as nails. It is freaking hot out here.

          Night work can sometimes be a pain with all the insects. I did a little outdoors welding last night and was constantly getting pelted by june bugs. Bugs in my helmet, bugs in my gloves, bugs under my shirt.
          "Ooooh the light is so pretty. Go towards the light." Stupid bugs.

            Finney: Your boys ever been to Utah before? They'll love it. Sky so blue it hurts your eyes, and REAL breathable air. Seriously, Utah is a beautiful State, they may not want to come back!

                Yep, that whole S.E. corner is gorgeous. One could spend weeks going through the Parks, and not see it all.

                  I could look out from Dead Horse Point for days!

                    I would love to go out there and work, looks beautiful. I am working in Virginia doing dig ups on a 30" line right now but I would rather be doing new mainline work.

                      I've seen many Rig Trucks going through NE Az, and along I-40 head towards NM. Not sure where they're headed, one guy was broke down outside of Payson, Az, pulling his 5th wheel camper. If I see some more stopped along the way, I'll ask where they're headed. I travel through there weekly.

                          Come to think of it, they could have been taking I-40 over to US 191, that'll take them right through Monument Valley, and up to Moab.

                          Sonora, so you in Colorado?

                              It remains a mystery..........

                              Hey Sonora, do you know if Miller's IronMate FC-1260 gun can be made to accept Bernard Centerfire Consumables? Their M-25 and Roughneck guns can, but I can't find anything on the FC-1260.
