Looks like my number has finally come up and myself and a horde of other linemen from Centerpoint Energy will be leaving at 5am Saturday morning to go help restore power taken out by Ivan, the unholy.

Blood money for sure but I think I'll enjoy the experience.

Unfortunately, I'll be missing the Double bayou blowout AND the Lonestar bike rally in Galveston week after next, (both of which I was REALLY lookin' forward to) but oh well, can't pass up a chance to lend a hand to some folks that need it and put a little coin in the pocket as well.

I'm guessin' we'll be gone anywhere from 2-3 weeks but who knows.

I'm bringin' the camera so maybe I can post up some interesting pics when we get back.

I'll be thinkin' about all my buds back in the Lonestar state while I'm gone and I hope all my bikin' buds have a great time at the blowout and the rally......hoist a few for me, would ya'?

Ha. looks like we're doin the same surfing at the same time. Have a good trip! You'll probably be able to pay off the bike when you return.

Good luck, Rex, and be careful. I know you guys are pros, but that's a dangerous environment. Looking forward to the pics when you get back. What I'm seeing on the news of the Pensacola area looks a lot like what I saw on the Mississippi coast after Camille.

God speed Rex ...

I know that the Lord has a host of angels hovering over you and the members of your crew of linemen in your gallant quest.
Just imagine the number of desperate hurricane devastated citizens who are praying for your presence right now.
Thank you!

Saying the Prayers

Be careful guys. I'm still waiting to hear from an Aunt and several older cousins with children and gandchildren. They live in Cantonment, Fla. which is just south of I-10 @ Pensicola. Ivan came right over thier area along with the graveyard that we just recently buried my closet Uncle on my mom's side.(approx. a year)
