See this is what I am talking about. As GISkev points out on his map here how fast one can go, there is no way I ever made it above 40-50 mph, and i maybe went "that" fast.

Nice map by the way what software and mapping product are you using to do this. I would like to learn. thx

Thanks for the info. I looked briefly online and saw some one mention that they had problems with stuff leaving their vehicles while they were gone. Did you have an issue?

(farm work is good training for adv expeditions! Long days... dehydration... Existential crisis pondering time... oh, and the dust!... sweaty a$$... significant other feels abandoned... dirt boogers... boots... gloves... mercy of the weather... repairs in the field... city friends think you're a hick... you get the idea.)

It's not too late, getting into medical school might still be an option for you.

Clearly you're motivated.

Yeah, the advantage is that you write the order, and wait for the nurses to perform it

That's WAY out of my scope of practice...................In the state of Utah, that is clearly a procedure to only be performed by docs. Depending on the gender of the doc, that's either a bonus, or.............not so much.

Hell, I don't need no damn degree. I've seen the videos.
