None, that i know of. I always cleaned any loose gravel off the fenders, chassis and conveyor frame before leaving a jobsite.

I have a race horse rehab center and I raise a lot of hay. I have got to old for training racehorses, to much travel for someone with my health problems. My connections to racing always save me financially. I was boarding 60 horses that required very little care until the economy took a dive. When the real estate market recovers I am going to retire.

Came to States as a seismologist and surveyor do an oil company. Left that in 1971 to start in aviation. Flew float planes for 9 years then worked my way thru light twins, turboprops and jets. Flew jets and turboprops for a utility co. for 20 years. Retired from that, did contract flying and consulting for a nameless co. to Central America and the Caribbean for a couple of years, then finished out my career as Aviation Manager for a towboat co. in Houma, LA.
