You don’t stop riding because you’re getting old, but you get old when you stop riding.

That's without the welding helmet, most of the time I'm just looking into steam anyway - can't see nothing and have to judge it on sound alone. It takes a while to get use to it.

Nah, we just use a modded welding helmet to insert perspex screens as they get destroyed with all the flying concrete. I'm going to get some GoPro footage soon so I'll show you

Depends on the tides and what the concrete is like for how tried I am. At the moment we're worrying the shit out of the main contractors - we're working too quick for them to keep up so they might end up paying us to sit in the van all day and do nowt.

I work in a cloud of steam much better under the wharf as I'm protected from wind and most of the weather and it's warm, as soon as you come up the top on the surface that's when you get cold.
