*Gulp.....deep breath....*  I'm new here, so you don't know me...yet.  I just wrote something for myself, at 51soontobe52, that I've been telling everyone for years but not following.    Since we seem to be somewhat neighbors on the same wheel at this point in life, I'll say that I can relate.  Yeah yeah cliché, but true.  I distinctly remember the simultaneous conversation in my head between a couple of the sager characters in my committee as I was having an actual verbal out loud conversation with someone contemplating a decision that would fucking RELEASE her from everything awful that was going on to her at her and around her..."Go ahead, jump.  You KNOW the landing is going to be rough, but the wind in your hair....IS SO WORTH IT".  The Sage Shawn and the More Experienced than Sage Shawn had their heads together as these words came out of my mouth saying oh sure that's some great advice, she only follows it when she's guaranteed of the outcome.  Why not take the actual huevos out of your purse you have been carrying around and put them to good use, and eat your own dog food?

Good on ya Red.  I greedily lap up all the dirt and caviar you dish up, all the self-reflection Warts and All that punctuates the ah-haaaa moments I've finally allowed myself to take stock in.  I'm along for this ride too.  And hoping I'm in a position soon to Buy You Coffee as I consider how good that wind will feel when I take my own advice and hit the launch button.

You are right chicknlil, there are transports built to deliver HUGE convections, cranes, 200ton bulldozers, fired heaters and large industrial pieces, however those items are generally not transported over-the-road for very long distances.  They still require a rail or barge offload to avoid overhead obstructions. http://www.pecktiongchoon.com/vehicles/modular-trailers

 Part of the issue with this dock, also, is the fact that the microorganisms on it can wreak havoc on the native ecosystem.  Dragging it around only loosens up these life forms.  Its a double-whammy of a problem.
