Sadly, we are winding up the job at Central Compressor Station, and we will all be gone very soon.  I really don't like good-byes.  I just want to put some pictures in the photo album so that when I am far away from Pennsylvania I can remember the good times we had working together.
This is Charlie Rohan.  He is the mechanic at the shop, and drives truck, keeps all the machines fueled and is always in good humor, always has a smile on his face.
Richard Wega, and Raul Zavala take a moment for the camera.  Raul is a civil worker, which means that he specializes in rebar, concrete forms and finishing the concrete after it is poured.  You had better put your running shoes on if you want to keep up with this young man!  Richard is the safety officer, and is going to another job in a day or two.
One of many guards you will meet at the front gate.  These men kept the protesters and terrorists out of the site.  Thanks for keeping the peace!

The inspectors had a cookout and here are the guys relaxing and having a great lunch. 
Mark Prejean (on the left) is the structural welder from Louisiana.  If you want to talk Cajun cooking, talk to Mark.  Next to Mark is inspector Bill Vancott, a Pennsylvania man.

Kirk, and Doug both work for EIU.  They do all the electrical work for the plant.

Jesus Miranda and Raul Zavala  below.

EIU electricians top off the Bar-B-Q with the salads. 

Harvey Gunther is the EIU superintendent and also a Bar-B-Q pro.  Bill Vancott is supervising, I guess.
Chicken, jalapenos,  and ribs.  Chicken is the most popular Bar-B-Q meat in this part of Pennsylvania.
Tommy Stanaland, safety officer,  and Dave Theis, superintendent.

Sam Ward, Ray Burroughs, and Bill Vancott are the third party inspectors and work for Williams.
Ray Burroughs in deep thought!  Reading the stock market, Ray?
John Moore, from Steel Nation kept us in Krispy Kreme donuts, and I gained 5 lbs. from his generosity.  Thanks, John; it was worth every pound! Dave Theis is at the end of the table.
Sam Ward and his little helper, Blue, a six-week old rat terrier.
Blue is all action!  Sam, you had better not leave your socks laying around unless you want holes in them.

This is the boom for the 600 ton crane we had on site to set the compressor.  This is an amazing piece of equipment.

Crane boom in the fog.  One of the guards took these pictures of the crane.  Nice shot.
This picture show the "gantry" or the cable that holds the boom up.

One of the guards took this picture of the forklift unloading in the fog.
These aren't all of the folks that have worked at this site, and I am sorry that I don't have their pictures.  Time got away from me.  God bless each and every one of you hard working folks; you have made my days fun.  Thanks for the memories.
