Hey Matt!

How's it goin? The station is nice will spend my first shift there on Wed. the 11th. And yes it does have a fireplace. As a matter of fact the brick work is from the old station. If you get a chance stop by. Or the next TRT drill will be there.

Matt, what I have read and SUFD teachs is that a sawzall is not able to cut the newer high strangth metals in cars. I agree with all of what you said.
