    We put in for upgrading to five inch supply line and all new hose for two engines. I think it was around $100,000.

    All we can do is pray...

    Has it been five years already?
    Man; it seems like just yesterday that we got our first "Dear John" letter.
    Still looking for our first win.

    Are they in the same congressional district as you? An informal poll this afternoon of 11th congressional district departments (Jerry Weller) shows that no one who has received the Qs and 1199A has been contacted. It appears that some congressional offices are on top of this and some not so.

    k3, they're in the same congressional district. Shimkus is the rep. They've had their questions and 1199 for quite a while. We just got our questions a couple weeks ago and the 1199 about a month.

    I think that Jack and I will have to wait another week. The phone has been silent...
    Too bad, too. The truck rep is really anxious to get building. Of course, we haven't really chosen anything yet.

    I was talking to a help person at DHS about a closing out problem I had and asked him if we were getting funded. He couldn't say but did tell me to be sure and check my e-mail in the morning. The list goes out at 4AM Eastern. That sounded promising. He also told me not to worry if it wasn't on the list this week. 4caster, there's still hope for us. I think the rusty place on our dump valve must have sealed itself up. Hasn't been any water on the floor for a week or so.
    Oh, congratulations K3

    We've all got our fingers crossed. I'm really pleased to here that some of you guys here in Illinois that could really use the help are getting it.

    I keep hounding the chief to check his e-mail and see if we have any signs of impending grant activity, so far nothing. He's been out of town for a while, so I really hope there's some good news waiting for him when he's back in the office Monday.

    Once all of you guys are getting specs done for your rigs - please share what's going on. I love the apparatus side of things, and feel you can never stop learning tidbits and ideas for use on that next rig.
