    The extinguisher that goes there is a 2 1/2 gallon PW and the gasket went bad and the pressure leaked out. Rather than have an out of service extinguisher on the rig I removed it. Once fixed it will be back in service.

    I hope that clears this all up!
    It is a sharp looking rig.

    If I get the class in Wisconsin again this fall, I'll have to take a look at it in person.

    Noticed this article on fh.com homepage...

    a 78 year old Chief? Kind of surprised on that one.

    Why? Wasn't Brunacini 135 when he finally stepped down?

    I believe 65 is the mandatory retirement age here in Louisiana.

    Since I started at 49, the most I'll be able to put in is 16 years. I will probably be fully ready to retire from my fulltime gig by then anyway, and do some teaching on the side of LSU, TEEX and my gig with the NFA.

    Ya, but it was a young 135.

    Those Hawaiian shirts have that affect.

    Thought Brunacini was God, not a Chief.

    Maybe not a God, but certainly somebody with some excellent ideas worth listening to.

    I think Brunacini thinks the same thing.
