Welcome back to the Blog!
We hope you've been having a great summer. It's been an interesting one here in Ontario, a wave of harsh heat and some of the most intense rain the province has ever seen. However, autumn is nearly here and we couldn't be happier to announce that once again, the Trailer Blocks team will be packing up and hitting the open road to enjoy the end of summer and to put our signature aluminum lift/lowering blocks to the test.
This long weekend, we'll be installing our lift blocks to our trailer and then setting our sights on the Robert Bourassa generating station, a hydroelectric damn on the La Grande River in northern Quebec. This trip will be roughly the same length as our voyage to the Daniel-Johnson dam, a round trip that will stretch nearly 3,000 km long. The journey will take our 26' tandem axle test trailer through a number of different environments, allowing us the opportunity to truly test our block's ability to endure harsh terrains. We'll be collecting a lot of data along the way and studying the interactions of our heavy components. This will include our impressions of the trip and dam, before-and-after shots of the trailer's installation and gorgeous, high-resolution pictures of all the sights we see up north.
We'll be sharing the results of our second Performance Voyage in an After-Action Report and we can't wait for you to join in our experiences. Keep an eye on the blog and our social media channels for the latest updates and content uploads.
