Help needed at the museum on Monday!

The semi truck with CRT gear will be at the museum on Monday, Iím asking for anyone who is able to show up to please be there in the AM. The more people we have, the faster things will go. Iím trying to line up a fork truck to unload the heavy items, if I canít get one things will get... interesting.

Sadly I'm tied up Monday. Did you catch my PM from Tuesday?

If I didn't have such a horrible cold I'd be there bright and early. I don't want to infect anyone else though. Sorry Nick...

Sunbelt has pneumatic-tired forklifts that look like 5-6K machines; easily enough to do the job. They're within a mile of the museum. Good for blacktop and gravel, but the ground is too wet to venture into the back fenced lot at the museum. You'll sink in quickly even without a load. It will be cold here overnight, but not enough to freeze the ground enough to drive a forklift on it. Trucks would be ok if done with care.

They have a small flat trailer that would take the ovens from trailer to pen, then could be tipped off (if crashing is ok) or lifted off with a bunch of guys -- just up, pop trailer out, then down. Take wood panels to keep feet from sinking in if they need to stay upright. Don't know if that's still the intended destination from my visit/discussion with them a week ago.

I have other notes from visit if you'd like to see them.

Just wanted to thank Chip once again for all his help, we couldn't have done it without you for sure.
