This is the one.
The wrecker guys came out to scout out the barn Wednesday afternoon. They were all for picking it up on Thursday but the weatherman was forecasting some rain and wind gusts up to 50 mph. I didn't think that would be too prudent so we're shooting for Saturday. I'll double check with them after school today and as long as they don't have a bunch of car wrecks by all the drunks around here on Friday night, we should be on for tomorrow.
As you can see in the photo, it's a big wrecker. They've got about 40 plus feet with the boom fully extended. We need about 24 to go from the top of the barn to ground level. That should leave plenty for the spreader bar and the cables/straps to the hook. I've got some tag lines tied off on the corners already. They'll have to pick it up and then back up about 12-15 feet so we can't get it swinging too much. I got underneath the lid and swept the area with a magnet the other day to make sure there weren't any nails under there. About all I have to do now is worry.
