Yeah. Finally got a gig that looks like it will work out, after nearly half a dozen false starts. All it took was carpet bombing the county in resumes and a handful of harassment suits / restraining orders. Workin at a mill, now. I'll probably still be on edge until I've got a few weeks under my belt, but it's a step in the right direction.

Holy hell that was one intense dry spell.

So... Uhh... What're YOU up to?

I would REALLY like to see this happen. I've actually been rationing my bike's last few hundred miles for this. Though I don't know how official, or how much notice I'll be able to provide. True to my nature, I may just end up crashing the rally like a teenager at the neighborhood party.

If you promise to keep posting on the root beer run thread, and involve some Fucking root beer from time to time; I got your fuel home.

Meh, that's pretty much how we all do it.

Congrats on the employment...hope it sticks!

New jobs are tough on time-off, if ya can swing it, it'll be a good time, first drink(s) on me! If not, I may just swing by and say hi on way back north.

Hah, awesome. While I appreciate the offer, it shouldn't be necessary. The gas money isn't the issue, it's moreso that my KLR seems to be in a constant state of "Uh oh, here we go. Aaaahhhhh I'M GONNA GRENADE!!! Lol, j/k"

And believe it or not, the tales shall continue... eventually.

It SHOULD stick. I actually feel good about this one, and seem to fit in very well. Plus, on fridays I get off at 10 AM, which makes for a good long weekend. And while I haven't checked the April Fools Dates, usually these things are on a Fri-Sat-Sun kind of deal.
