"OK, so we have the field for SCRIW. Did Billfred say how in the **** we were going to get it into the building with all the doors locked?"
"Probably thought we'd be able to figure it out ourselves--after all, we are engineers. Think we can remove part of that wall OK?"

Re: CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #745

These doors lead directly into the pits but...
Maintenance hasn't shown up yet, so you have to go around the side, through the small door, turn right, go up two flights of stairs, across the gym balcony, through the double doors at the other side, then down the ramp one flight, turn right, go down the stairs and then turn right again. That will get you to a long hallway with a door halfway down that will be open, all the others are locked. Go through the door, don't run into anything in the office and through the door on the other side, then you will see another hallway with light at the end, go there. That is the light you seek "at the end of the tunnel".

Re: CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #745

"Okay, so this is how we're going to unload the road cases from the truck. Drive straight to that end of the parking lot, then stop and we'll open the rear gate and release the parking brakes on the road cases' caster wheels. After that, drive in reverse as fast as possible towards this door, and hit the brakes hard when you get to that median. Be sure to slow down early enough; we're already launching road cases...we wouldn't want a repeat of 11foot8 Crash #123, now would we?
