One night I'm at G1 and asked to get something that's spotted at the side of a rail track. When hooking up to a trailer and in the process of retracting the landing gear to prepare for moving it, there are three main things which happen. One, a whine of leaking air comes from the rear of the tractor as the weight of the trailer compresses the supports. Two, the visible space between the base and feet of the landing gear shrinks. Three, the landing gear feet visibly rise up from the ground as it is retracted. The trailer I'm hooking up to is very close to another one directly across from it, so I have to hook up to it at a near right angle. This isn't unusual. There's a railyard crane coming near as I'm doing this, and it's a major offense to move a vehicle underneath an operating crane, so I'm trying to hurry to at least pull it away and then do the rest of the hook up out of the way. I'm cranking the landing gear and it's spinning, which indicates that I'm going the right way, because if I weren't, it would take a lot more effort to crank it as I would be trying to raise the trailer and its weight by these means itself. So the trailer should be going down. I look down and see that the distance between the base and the feet of the landing gear is decreasing. However, the feet are still touching the ground and I don't hear any air being squeezed out from the tractor. I stop and look up and notice that the entire trailer is tilting towards me. The tractor was not fully hooked into the kingpin, and the fifth wheel rests at an angle, and the surface of the pavement underneath everything was gently inclined towards the rail, so my cranking was causing the entire trailer to shift its weight to its side. I estimate that the angle of tilt was at least ten degrees if not more. From this point I gingerly maniuplated the fifth wheel suspension and cranked the landing gear in low setting so that I could eventually get it aligned properly. That was rather frightful. Had I not paid any attention and kept turning the gear, for all I know I might have managed to tip the entire trailer over and crash on top of me.

Some days later it's very windy, and after I'm done with a move I leave from NS63 without a trailer. I exit to an unused vacant street and open my door to attend to some business. As I'm opening the door, the wind carries it out of my hand and I notice a peculiar noise emit as it flies open. I take care of the business, return, and come to notice that the door will now not shut. After some time and eventually having some coworkers come around, I've come to discover that the updraft managed to bend the door at the hinge. With nothing but a few rubber straps hooked against the frame, and my hammer to use as an additional handle into the door, I had to drive back to the garage on the expressway with the door unable to be fully shut.

After these two days, I decided to take a hint and enjoy both of my scheduled days off rather than come in for an extra sixth.

I didn't make much time to play Extra Mode songs this week and instead have been playing the normal charts for some new songs acquired so that I can apply proper volume adjustment beforehand. It's been nice. Having more of the Pendual files is helpful. My arcade session didn't feel as poor this week as last and I had it end with a new clear, so I was happy about that.
