N/A Consulting Opportunity

I received a call from the company I did some work for in 2016, on a project located in Delaware. The phase II work is scheduled to get underway and the client requested me for the project management, I guess I did something right. There has been a slight shuffle in the schedule and along with a canopy there will be a passenger building added to this phase, previously scheduled for phase III.  Immediately following this work, two additional buildings will get underway, a bus garage and a drivers building along with fuel islands. I'm thinking I'll have work from October through the end of next year.

While the work will limit my weekly fly time it will provide extra play money for travel. The plans to purchase a motorhome to reposition in Florida are on hold since I'll be working this winter. I'll take some vacation time for our trip to Waco and as Mary and I discussed last night, we might take a few more days in Destin, Sanibel Island or the Keys before coming home.
So, its time to dust off the work gear and get my Ranger pick-up cleaned up and ready to go. I'm excited to dive back into construction plans and a new project. More reporting and I'm sure some overhead shots of progress will make it to the blog.

You definitely made a great impression with your work. Doesn't that make you feel proud. I loved the feeling of a job well done. Need to work in that flight time though. Very important.

It's always a good feeling to be asked back by a client. We had a two hour meeting to pass along plans and discuss schedules, it should be fun.

I'll need to dedicate the weekend mornings for flight time and maybe a few get-awayswhen we can. Flying keeps me sane....and I'm sure Mary would confirm, also easier to live with ;)
