world, we came away with a deeper understanding of the craft than I thought possible. Needless to say, we can’t wait to put this new knowledge to good use. On the homefront, I’m proud to report that Jessica’s journey as a missionary has come full circle. I’ve mentioned in the past that going on a mission trip to the inner city as a member of our church’s youth group inspired her to pursue that line of work in her adult life.

However, the capstone to the last two months of training was delivered by none other than Bill Scales himself! In case you aren’t as big of a nerd when it comes to compressed air as my team and I, Bill Scales is a bit of a celebrity in our world. During his time running a distributorship in the Northeast, he worked hand in hand with the Department of Energy on major projects, becoming the foremost authority in our trade. As much as it feels like blasphemy to use the word, Scales really did write the bible on compressed air. His best practices manual has set industry standards across the board. We were lucky enough to host Mr. Scales earlier this spring and gain his insights on the future of compressed air. Speaking with someone that has conducted audits of thousands of systems around the
