- Where the sun sets fast
Phew, I thought for a moment that you had to use the phone flash. Don't scare us like that, my friend!
You ARE sick! ......and I am too!Nice catch. Of course I'm wondering what the runway lights are using.
Wow. Solar powered and radio controlled. Those have to be LEDs.View attachment 42023
Something like these.
But your price/performance ration is way better than those $5 headlamps.Yes, that is a trench box the backhoe sets into the trench via a chain on each corner clamped in the center and attached to the bucket. If I get the chance tonight I'll take a photo of it being set in the trench.
They had just begun removing the pavement in the photo. Soon after the trench box was in the hole they dug.View attachment 42092

One thing I noticed is that crew no longer relies on celphone flashlights but now has $5 Energizer headlamps on their hard hats. Ha, they turn them on at the start of a shift and by midnight a celphone light would be brighter.
I've worked around that company a few years now and they still marvel at how bright my PR-1 is and still choke when I tell them how much it costed in 2016. ($89 btw)
An excellent reminder to all, especially those who may carry only a keyring or other type low-output light in the daytime, of one of a number of reasons survival in 'daylight' hours (including night time with solar-level scene lighting) can often require more CDs than survival at night.With my handy PKDL PR-1
