    Nice Podcast. Funny how even back then unions had some crazy rules.

    Great story. This story makes me want to thank my old employer for not supplying me with a "wheel" instead of a service vehicle. Pittsburgh to Breezewood on a bicycle in the winter, SCARY.

    @retiredguy, that would be one hilly and chilly trip. Glad you've got 4 wheels.

    Awesome knowledge as usual. I couldn't imagine carrying boiler service tools while riding a bike. Dead men were tough guys.

    Dan: you always have great stories. I miss you coming out to ST. Louis for ASHRAE - you always did great. Guess what I found a week or two ago? My "Stevie's Team" t-shirt !
