    Yep. I was scheduled for a late start today and was still at home when it all happened. Don't know anything other than what I've read on WEAR and PNJ.

    Shooter was shot and killed by a Escambia County Sheriffs deputy.

    Our own AST236 works for the Escambia County Sheriffs Department as a shooting instructor and other capacities. No way to know if He was directly involved but he will certainly know those officers that are.

    Praying Frank and his co workers are OK.

    OG-Gimmee > Old cripple bastards report

    Gimmee is doing much better (although not great) since getting the infection cleared up. He got all the plastic crap taken out and the new knee put back in, no sign of infection! He's still in a lot of pain (duh) and has had the PT folks at his house every day working the new knee, which causes even more pain but it's gotta get done. He has already made revolutions backwards and now is peddling forward on the bike, something I couldn't do for four months. He should recover completely and start getting back to normal life in the next couple months hopefully. I have witnessed at least 6 people in PT that have had a total knee done and all of them have done very well. I was not a candidate for a total as mine was what they call "grenaded" which is not even a real word I don't think.

    OG is doing better also. Fifty six weeks and three surgeries later and I'm still in rehab 4 hours a week. Still working to get back to my "new" normal what ever that's gonna be. I'm very thankful to walk without a limp most of the time, I don't use a cane or crutches ever and although I haven't made a 200 mile ride yet I have made it to just under 190, just can't keep it bent that long yet. Also very very thankful I didn't get addicted to Opioids aka Oxycontin cause I was eating that shit like candy for months, on off then back on it again several times. I'm a lucky guy.
    I had no idea how difficult this past year was gonna be and I'm glad to be getting on the other side of it finally. It has been both a curse and a blessing at the same time. I have learned so much about myself and how I moved through the world. I've been changed physically mentally and emotionally and it's all for the good. Seems the asshole part of me is finally subsiding a little and I've been able to start embracing and accepting the aging process. What a wake up call !!!


    Pic was taken pre surgery for Gimmee, hope he's smiling again soon!

    I'm beginning to think that we need to change the group name to Pensacola AGING Riders.

    Anybody out there have a Harbor Freight motorcycle lift. I enjoyed mine for about 3 until the hydraulic bottle jack crapped out. I scoured the interwebs for a solution to salvage the thing. I landed on this video and successfully converted my lift. In the process, I ended up with an extra 12 ton Harbor Freight air/hydraulic jack exactly like the one in the video. It has a 3/4" steel tube JB Welded to the bottom, like in the video, but other than that, its brand new and good to go. Twenty bucks and it's yours. Let me know if you're interested...

    Separately, I'm gonna ride Eglin with my son tomorrow morning from Substation. Plan is for KSU at 10:00 for a couple hours of kicking it in the sand. Should be excellent after this afternoon's rain. Maybe grab an IPA and a bite at Ye Ole Brew Brothers afterwards, around 12:30 or so, Anyone wanna join us?

    OG, Thanks for the scoop.

    Gimmee...some of the best advice I ever heard was "getting old isn't for pussies ya know" :lol3, just never thought a bunch of us would be living proof of it as quickly as we have.

    Anytime you guys want to ride a pedal bicycle, I'll try to keep up with you...just let me know where and when :-).

    On the other happenings today i.e. NAS shooting....Thank You to all LEOs and First Responders, you are appreciated not only today but every day!
