OH CRAP!
« on: March 06, 2011, 11:58:52 AM »
I was just sitting there having my morning coffee at Sotol Vista when a big truck pulls in. There is construction going on in many locations of the park so I didn't even turn around to see what it's hauling. There was already a crane parked there when I arrived before sunrise, I had assumed that it was just parked there for storage. I take another sip of coffee and I'm thankful that the truck driver turned off his engine rather than leave it idling. A few minutes later he comes over and says "Good Mornin' " and asks if I'm the crane operator. "No" I reply and get up to greet him (Lester is his name) and he says he's early anyway so he assumes the operator will be along shortly. I look back at his truck and ask what's going on. He says that he's haulin a crapper and they are putting it here.  :icon_eek:   :icon_eek:  :pissed: I look around and see the hole that I had not noticed in the dark when I first arrived. I'm not happy about it but at least it's at the east end of the parking lot. So it seems there will be a excreta storage facility at Sotol Vista from now on.

May the wind be from the west when you visit.
