The loading of the semi

The day that I have been hoping for with great anticipating is finally here. The semi idles on the street as we load and secure all of the pieces. The truss that is 100′ long and 23′ wide, has been broken down into over 40 pieces and weighing in at 1800 pounds. All of the birds have been nestled softly into 8 wooden crates that are approximately 8′ x 4′ x 3′. It takes a half a dozen men and myself, three hours to load the semi and secure the load. The truck driver says, “Adios. I’ll see you in California,” and pulls away. The end has just started to unfold.
