More About Drew
Drew Samson Barefoot - Helper
Drew Samson, or "Sammy", is our little guy. The happiest kid in the 3rd grade, Sammy loves to help Daddy put tools away and build stuff around the farm. He can tell you anything you want to know about outer space and loves his toy cars, PBJs, trains and Metallica. Although Sammy does not go on the jobsites with Daddy, he loves looking at the pictures and asking questions about what we do, especially the beach manholes. It appears one day when he is old enough, he might take his old man's spot - but he will have to work for his sister by that point. Scary.

More About "Alfonso"
"Alfonso" - Company Van
Alfonso is one of our two work vehicles. He was bought by Carolina Precast brand spanking new in 1997. A Ford E-350 Econoline with the 7.3 diesel, this boy can roll. In 2001, when he hit 160,000 miles, he was auctioned off at the plant and I bid on him and our band bought him. He went from manhole service truck to a band van overnight. I dont think I even had time to clean him out. He hauled all of our metal band's equipment (drums, guitars, speakers, monitors, lights, PA system, etc) all over North and South Carolina - Fayetteville, Raleigh, Garner, Greensboro, Chapel Hill, Wilmington, Jacksonville, Fort Bragg, Myrtle Beach, Little River, Greenville, Sneads Ferry, New Bern. Every Friday night, for over 3 years, we were on the road in that van headed to a show somewhere.
In 2004, the band dissolved and Alfonso became a full time farm truck, hauling around fertilizer and gasoline and paint and yard equipment and making the monthly trip to the Harnett County landfill. A few years ago, a guy called and wanted to buy him and was gonna bring me the cash one Friday afternoon. I had a notary lined up to meet and everything, but the guy never showed up, never called, and never returned messages. When we decided to start Samson Storm and Sewer LLC, it was obvious it was time for him to come full circle and start repairing manholes again. Funny how that happens. Currently rocking over 230,000 miles, I am looking forward to getting at least another 230,000 out of him. Named after my buddy that drove him pretty regularly when he was the service vehicle for Carolina Precast - Alfonso Ramirez - he is back and hard at it. Rock on, Fonzie.
