    Awesome day, great putting faces to the names. It is conforting to know Steam guys are just like HVAC guys ...a little crazy but a lot of fun. OK more then a little crazy.

    @Sailah
    Thanks for putting this together and letting this Old, Overweight, longhaired HVAC Nut help out. I had a blast flat I could help out.

    @MichelleLe1
    Especially great meeting you. This gift couldn’t go to a nicer person.

    So here's the crew from today L to R

    Paul, Bob Boan, Bobby Gates, Ezzy (in back) Michelle (in front), Jamie, Peter

    Bob & Bobby work together and are funny as hell. Squirting each other with cutting oil, hilarious



    Ezzy, going to town on the boiler



    Bob Boan, just about the nicest guy you could meet. I was thrilled to be able to hold his pipe wrench all day and annoy him with pics in the face while he was trying to work. I discovered Bob's weakness and it's spelled P-E-C-A-N PIE



    Bob and Paul working on one of the runs



    Ezzy and Jamie discussing wold politics and drop headers



    Paul working the wrenches, Bobby Gates behind him and Bob Boan in the background



    Bob fine tuning one of the runs. He put on a pipe threading clinic. Which mainly involved him telling Bobby Gates to stop spraying him with cutting oil lol. I knocked over his chip and oil bucket. Blamed it on Jamie after he left.

    Awe shucks. Thanks 😊
    Also I totally agree. A huge thank you to the wives, girlfriends and children of these guys for letting me borrow them for a few days.
    @ Sailah
    Thanks for the pictures of the steam dream team at work (or was it play).
    Thanks again for dinner. Glad you decided to stay overnight.

    Steam is a beautiful thing when it's done right and these guys certainly know how to do that 😁

    @Mike_Sheppard yes the original installer did show up. Didn’t do a thing just was in awe or pissed off on what we have done I couldn’t say what his feelings where towards us doing the work. I can only speak for myself, I was in the zone of getting this job completed.
    It was great to meet and work with everyone that showed up.

    Love the video. Ezzy moves almost that fast in real time.
    Nice and peaceful here all day. Got my pressure relief valve on this morning. I had to go buy some big wrenches cuz I was jealous 😁
    Have a fantastic and safe holiday season all.
    Sincerely,
    Michelle
