This will directly affect what I do for a living as well. We're already getting daily reminders from the folks sitting in a corporate office about our idle times. Easy to say when their office is in a building versus mine on diesel powered drive train and already hitting 100 degrees outside. (Hey, keep them idle times down and bake your a55 off because we need to keep profits up to please investors)

It's much more than just one condition in my own work bubble I know... Rumors say prices will get higher and will do so fast..... that'll affect all of us in many ways....

I have to wonder if it could get so bad( diesel prices start hitting $6-8 dollar's a gallon down the road) that the Entire truck driving industry comes to a grinding halt because no one can afford to fill up the gas tanks,etc....Not trying to be Mr gloom and Doom,but I do wonder if it's a possibility at some point in the future?? Or I'm I just Crazy for thinking like that????

    10M BAND.....>28400 SSB .... Always give your full callsign. Listening is the key so be sure we call you before replying. 3Y0J will always listen up (using split) so it will be useless to call us on our transmission frequency.

    I like these guys already. :cool: Sounds to me like ROBO callers in ANY Mode will be ignored!!!!(y)

    3Y0J: Update January 29, 2023: Ken estimates Marama should arrive at Bouvet on Monday evening just before sunset. He says he anticipates a good weather window for at least two days then. The team will attempt to move the equipment and supplies onto the island using the zodiac then. They have two zodiacs. They are hoping to accomplish it in those two days. :cool:
