That's awesome until you have to pull a lot of posts on a job. The schmuck that put my fence up originally was pissed at his wife for buying dogs that needed a fence so he concreted all of the posts in a day and immediately put the panels (non treated) on the same day he poured the posts. Had a wind storm that night and all the posts got blown at an angle. At least he used steel posts but I had to pull about 30-40 posts.

Fortunately I knew what I was doing and welded a post puller to pop them out easy enough.

If you use quick-setting concrete that's probably okay. Except you HAVE to use treated wood. Only an idiot wouldn't.

That shite will get solid within 15 minutes with a small amount of water. Better work fast with that stuff.

Let's just say that you fly right over me when you have a southerly headwind.

You know, for a pilot, you don't seem to understand that a southerly wind blows north.

**think landing

*** also, you'll never find a fence that nice in GP or Arlington, so that should have been your first clue.

**** finally, look where I'm from under my avatar <---

when speaking of wind, a southerly wind blows south to north, when flying in a southerly direction it's south to morth

Beats what he was doing before. He was flying into Dubai and Kandahar for a government contract ferrying equipment and troops. Hated it.

Most of the non-commercial stuff I do is on rotor craft for test evaluation of LIDAR systems fused with other ISR technologies or targeting systems or to fly out to an aircraft carrier. Defense contracting test and evaluation stuff. Last craft I was on was a Soviet era MI-II chopper that had been retrofitted with Black Hawk avionics from Rockwell-Collins.

By the way, those images in the avionics? That's Iowa farmland at 1500'(+/-) elevation at midnight using, color on the left, monochrome on the right, with point LIDAR fused with the color images on the left. The two orange "T" images are power line towers and you can see the transmission lines being picked up.

It can be much more fun that ferrying people, or it can be a corporate road to complete boredom. Hope it's the first and not the latter.
