Success! We roll on...

A quick post to let everyone know that the crane lift back onto the driving wheels went very smoothly, in no small part thanks to Steve Lee and our crew. Bragg Crane of Reno did an outstanding job. We accomplished a whole lot more thanks to all the good folks who joined us for the week. Look for a full update next Sunday. Until then, have a great week! -JCA
