    Strong case of FTS. Week long engine change is week long because idiots. I thought I'd decided to not go to Chattanooga because moving is expensive and it's a totally dumb decision for us financially but holy fuck do I need to get away from these idiots and their legally questionable maintenance practices. But hey, at least the paperwork is correct! :banghead:

    Groomer clipped the old dogs nails too short yesterday, He was limping so I checked his paws thinking the skin was nicked. Tow of his claws were bleeding and need to have a stiptic pressed onto them, he is not a happy camper this morning. Tramadol seems to me helping him.

    cold morning but at least the wind has stopped howling....another glorious day on the short bus awaits...:bonk::bonk::bonk::bonk:

    Good Morning!!!

    Foggy ride in this morning...I was on school drop-off detail for the kiddo this morning. He dislikes those days, cause I don't play around and keep him hopping to a military-like precision.

    Just kidding...it's a wonder we even made it there on time. :banana:

    I actually got some things accomplished on Monday. A rarity. I wonder what happened?

    Mornin!

    Second wedding anniversary today. Gotta figure out what sort of delectable dish I want to make and serve to my beautiful wife on this lovely occasion of our legal union (just kidding, we filled out the paperwork 9 months later).

    Started the bike build last night. Just gotta rebuild the fork with fresh oil and do new pads and a bleed in the brakes before it'll be ready to roll.

    What sort of riding is available there, some sandy pump tracks? I haven't see a patch of good dirt in the SW corner.

    This is what she's looking at. We'd also stop to ride on the way down and back. I'm not inclined to overanalyze anything, just relax and try it. The two of us have never managed not to have fun in our wanderings.

    Interesting thing on MTBproject. Just checked it out for the first time and 70% of the trail system that I mapped out over the summer is now on there. Looks like whoever did it copied all of the dumb names :rofl: that I put into TrailForks, which I literally made up (trails have no names otherwise). I wanted to rename some of them, but maybe its too late now?

    Late night call from manager giving me heads up of what I was walking into this am... w.t.f. people?! Painted a bathroom last night that didn't have power because I pulled the light fixture off, so I was sucking down paint fumes for about 1.5 hours and have a splitting headache. At least Haley's feeling better and is off to school. T-3 days until rd. 2 is ejected. Sleep is about to leave the room. FTS.

    Just wait patiently until it starts to work, then submit a ticket that it's not working.

    Paella, of course. :brows:

    Whistleblowers get to keep a percentage of what's recovered, at least under Federal law... just sayin'.

    Kings got to shit down a hole onto whomever was sitting on the floor beneath. Now one has to hire hookers a la Drumpf for that same level of execution...

    Ugh, wasted trips to the DMV! Car registration is due and for some reason, the system said i don't have current insurance so i couldn't renew. Couldn't get a ticket since they stop handing them out at 4:30, the time i get off work, even though they don't close until 6:30. What a P.I.T.A.

    Way overcast today, and high 50's so I'm cold, time to change rides to after work.

    Some Elf gifts came in yesterday, only half the items were there. Suspicious... The items missing said it was handed directly to the receptionist and she said she didn't have them. The last item should come in today, 1 item direct to the elfs house due to iffy delivery window. I will ship it all off soon.

    We seem to skirt quite close to that line sometimes, but so far, disagree though I might, I don't think anything crosses into "whistle blowing" territory. Just, "my manager is a myopic, short sighted, dick" territory.

    I did just tell the immediate supervisor that "every one in this hangar has signed enough shit on that engine change to go to jail for the rest of their lives" in front of the crew that's flying it out. :rofl:

    For those nostalgic for Santa Cruz's 2003 model line up.

    I hope they come with a supply of shock bushings

    That is why you have two engines.

    This also could explain why the average delay for flights from CHO to CLT was about three hours. Flights ran every 50 minutes or so. Would often see two other flights take off to the same destination before I got to board my winged RV.

    So, still planning the spring break trip, I am going to propose spending a few nights in Bear's Ears, just to show it to my kiddo before it is a strip mine. Anyone ever been?
