My driver was a Russian who delivered on time. My problem was that I had a small tractor with forks which was not quite strong enough to pick up the shipment. It was borderline, but would have definitely tipped the tractor over. So Serge came up with the idea that he would ride on implement attached to the back of the tractor. It did the trick! We unloaded the shipment without mishap and Serge went on his way. Thanks to him for offering his creative thinking and risking life and limb! Tony Wall
