    My dad created the grease for the trucks that made the Alaska Pipline. He got pneumonia going in and out of freezers to test it one hot summer in Oklahoma. Conoco got the patten

      I can see how your dad got sick, Carol. When I was on a service-truck in Colorado sometimes I had to work in the freezers of a local meat-processing plant. Temps of 105+ degrees outside and hovering around 20 degrees in the coolers. It was painful to run in and out to get tools and materials.

      Kudos to your dad for creating the grease. I had a number of friends working on the pipeline during the ’70s and ’80s.
