Will USS Pump trucks go down a fire road?

Post by Drizzt321 » Tue Aug 07, 2018 10:24 pm

Will the USS Pump trucks go down a camp fire road (16+' wide) to pump out RVs or the big blue gallon barrels? Or will they only do it from the regular roads? Based on Placement since we aren't going from road to road, we don't need it all the way through from the front to the back road, just from the front to the back of our camp space.

You've seen them or had it happen with you? Sweet. Guess we can do the original camp design then :)

They used a fire road to pump an RV in our camp last year.

Oh nice, great! I'll just make sure the fire road is plenty wide and free from things.

and be prepared to sit in camp all day to flag down the appropriate truck. With bribe(s).

If it's not too late, reach out to them and contract their services... like a person who knows how to plan their camp's needs...

In camp or go out on a mission specifically to find one. Been there, done that before. Hm. Maybe I should pick up a couple of extra bottles of decent whiskey for a suitable bribe gift of appreciation.

I've called them twice and been waiting two weeks for a call back to set up a contract.
If you want to make a reply about my personality instead of about what this thread is about, don't clutter this thread, post over here instead.

I'd give it a couple of weeks, they're probably really busy this time of year.
Sooner or later, it will get real strange...
