    At the suggestion of others . . . away we go!

    Keep tabs on the Ramcharger 8 lift build (and Ramcharger removal/relocation) here:

    Looks like the chairs have already been removed from the lift and are stashed near Swifty for the time being.

    I have to imagine it is. They have to remove Shedhorn quickly so that they can move Ramcharger over there. I'm guessing it's a lot more efficient for the helicopter to pick the tower up and move it straight to the new spot than to set it down and then carry it over another time. All while readying Andesite for the new Ramcharger.

    Just wanted to make anyone that comes across this thread aware that the PugSki National Gathering will be at Big Sky for the 2018-19 season.... February 23rd - March 2nd, 2019. Hope to see lots of folks there... I'm guessing this thread will be a bit more active because of it.

    I saw a couple of heavy lift choppers flying high up up the valley in Ennis yesterday and was wondering what they were doing. Should have put two and two together.

    LOL ...Can you find out who’s chopper that is ? I Just returned from the Miele factory sale with some appliances to take cross county.

    Going to need to borrow one of those heavy lifters just to put the new fridge in place - it took 4 of us to get it out of my van !

    When do you need help unloading? I am on the road for a few weeks but back in mid-June.

    Wow @Talisman, very generous of ya, FYI the fridge is 500#
    The UHaul cross country trek date is yet to be determined as we haven’t broken ground yet, that’s still 4-6 weeks away.
    Once we have a foundation and a structure
    I’ll feel like this is really happening.

    Cautiously optimistic that will be having turkey day in the new house.

    I don't mind working to help a new neighbor, but to wrestle a 500# fridge into place with no scuffs or scratches let's use an appliance dolly.

    Welcome to June in Big Sky, where it snows nearly every month of the year.

    This statement is true. In the summer the dusting of snow is usually gone by 10:00 AM.

    It's not really lingo... it's a bird.
