men welding a gas pipeline

Did you know I was a Pipeline Welder? It was 30  years ago this month!

That's me in the lower left-hand corner. What an exciting career journey I've had! I will never forget that day. My crew and I were assigned to repair a natural gas pipeline section located high in the Appalachian mountain ranges of Pennslyvania.

 

The mountain was so steep that we could not drive our trucks up the side.  We had to be towed up the mountain by a huge bulldozer!

I had no idea what to expect at the top, but once we finally made it we were treated to this beautiful view.

It was very exciting to work outside on a mountaintop!
