Gary tried to make arrangements early so we could plan better. This proved not to be possible because of the very short windows of time the gates to a ship would be open. At one time, he was told we would have 24 hours once we were told a ship would have space for the container - 24 hours to get the container from Seattle, get it loaded, then back to Seattle, to get it onboard the ship. This would not work at all. A date was finally provided, but then it was pushed back three times. We were not sure when or even if the container would go. At last, a final date was set, but then we were told a suitable trailer could not be found. We always try and ship our containers right at the weight limit, nearly 56,000 pounds, but this time because of the lack of a trailer with the correct number of axles, the weight limit would be nearer to 44,000 pounds. Some of our cargo would have to go later. The morning of the supposed arrival of the truck, I called Gary to see if it was really going to happen. He told me the truck had been directed to Lincoln Boulevard in a town about 20 miles south of Spokane. Gary got that straightened out and the truck was finally headed to Lincoln Road here in Spokane. When it arrived, the loading began immediately. First were several pallets of bentonite, huge Gaylord boxes, cables, and various other kinds of material were loaded. Then came three layers of well casing filled with hundreds of feet of Schedule 120 PVC pipe for the pumps. Then a false deck of plywood was placed over the pipe and more pallets and boxes stacked on top. Gary had carefully pre-weighed all the items and made sure he was under the gross weight WTR Rasmussen Cont’d on page 46. from the WWDR Team! Ronnie Ed Michele Bonnie Sheryl Amy Linda Marie Troy
