    Man I wish I could would love to take a few birds we don’t see down here home but I think we will be to busy restoring power. Not exactly sure yet where we are headed during Sandy we just headed north and ended up in New Jersey on Long Beach island and Toms River and every where in between. We usually will get to a location and they will tell us where we need to go we usually get the roughest stuff but we can handle anything Mother Nature throws at us. Maybe meet some new friends up there and swap some hunts or something.

    Only worked 1 day? I didn’t have power from late Sunday night to about 6 pm Saturday night. Too bad you didn’t get to spend more time up here

    We were ready to work had 350 linemen after driving three days believe me we were ready to get some lights on but they said they didn’t need us. I was hoping to work a few days and explore that area not used to seeing tundra swans tons of wildlife be glad y’all don’t have a bunch of backwoods redneck up there it would be open season lol
