You know it's going to be be heavy but it still shocks you just how heavy that block is. And at the time, that was worth about $1.3M...

I wish I still had the picture, but about 20 years ago my elementary class took a field trip to Fort Knox goldmine. We all got to hold a 22lb bar of gold and have our picture taken. It was worth about $97k at the time.

It's nothing glamorous, but it is an industry in which I have developed a skill set. I wish I had actual photos of the workplace, but damaged freight photos aren't that interesting. And all of the other photos of the workplace are from other people's screw ups, so I don't want to incriminate anybody.
@cwrose Thanks for sharing. That's awesome. I was a truck driver before changing careers to IT, so I too have seen a lot of damaged freight.

@rob28 Thanks for sharing. Wow...that is awesome. Just to think, $1.3M in your hands. I would be sweating...ha ha ha How heavy was it? And ya look great.
