    I know exactly how you feel. That’s why I work at Phoenix-Zeppelin. :-) With all that Cat machinery, it’s easy to get lost in a childish fantasy.

    By the way, it’s a great feeling driving a track-type tractor with a blade full of dirt. Come to Prague and I’ll introduce you to some of the more fun machinery than a crane. 😀
