    Friar Mike, I'd be glad to lend a hand but I won't be leaving N.J. until the middle of May. I just retired last year from 40yrs. of hangin iron.

    I've put up steel buildings before and just might be down that way about the 20th. I might be able to put in a day or two. This is my 'Summer of Unemployed Fun' so I can't accept cash payment without ruining my fun.

    I'm not sure when I will be leaving Utah; sometime between Memorial Day and the 15th of June. But I am more than happy to help out for a day. Willing to move dirt, clean/polish metal, hammer sticks or whatever you need help with. Whenever I get up there, I would be more than happy to help out for a day. Now if I could only get my boss to tell me the actual day I can leave for a month. If you could PM me with some contact info I'll give you a ring when I get near.:ear
