Today is the day of the big show, but Friday morning at about 2:00am we were loading in the trucks and running the cables. It was a pretty easy load in. Everything checked out fine.
We had to replace one cable reel that had been strung out for the camera position.
The day before we checked six of the seven cable reels. The one we didn't test was out with an SNG unit on a story. Yup. The one we didn't check had loose fittings.
The rule is you should always check your portable cable reels before taking them out into the field.
Sage advice, but I'm thinking that probably doesn't apply to most of you.
How about, don't do drugs and stay in school? Better?
On the bright side, it didn't rain on us and we weren't too cold. A lot more happened, but you know the story of my life lately. I'm out of time and I still have to shave and pack up my tuxedo.
If all goes well, we'll talk later.
