    haha not the tower (the one that looks like a giant T)! with the truck cranes and crawlers, the cab isn't too high off the ground. in the bottom picture, you can see just above the white pickup truck and to the left of the big red X the cab and the door half way open.

    here is a video of a job I was on some time ago... we were actually in the upper yard off loading from rail cars all the pieces for the big red crane, mammoet PTC ringer 1600 I believe was the model. that was an experience working with one of the biggest cranes I might ever see in my life! we then dismantled and loaded back on rail cars after! oh and the coke drums were 550k pounds taken to about 100 feet I believe... I cant fully remember the radius.

    I am a certified welding inspector (CWI) and an ASNT Level III in Phased Array Ultrasonic Examination, Magnetic Particle Examination, and soon to be Visual Examination. I was specializing in building Mid-Stream Gas Plants, but since retired myself from doing that. In a previous life I spent 16 years in the US Army and Guard. I was a SGT. and Howitzer Crew Section Chief on an M109 self propelled howitzer in 155mm. I was deployed as a part of Operation Enduring Freedom in 2004, and spent a year doing that. If I were younger, in better shape, and could take the pay cut, I would have tried to become a PH. It is funny how the older we get, the clearer our path should have been, Lol... In any case, now just trying to bag my first Buff this year, and begin the planning and penny pinching for elephant!

    Petroleum Engineer with a major US oil company in Lagos, Nigeria. Life was better with $100 oil, but no complaints right now. Living in Lagos makes for relatively short and cheaper flights to southern Africa, so taking advantage of that all I can. Might even look at a hunt or two closer to Nigeria, such as Benin or Cameroon.
