That's why those engineers make the BIG $$$$$$. And us working folks have to figure out how to make it really work. Good Luck you'll figure it out.

Run on that to get skinny

Halfway through the several day Operation Massive Closet Cleanout (preceded by Operation Massive Room Cleanout), I uncovered the military mortar box that I bought years ago at Fort Bragg. I intended to use it as a trunk but it was too long to fit behind the rear seat. I put it in the closet and later buried it under a mountain of shipping boxes and supplies. Now that I have the seat out I'll probably bolt it where the seat mounts and later incorporate it into the rack system I plan to build.

I worked for a hardware store for four years, and all the time an architect or engineer would be screwing up some blueprint or plan and the contractors would be pissed, saying only they can make things really work.

Now, I work for an engineering firm. We have contractors install wrong poles at wrong locations, transformers in places not according to plan, and all kinds of other screwups. The engineers say they are the only ones that can make things really work.

Its a constant battle, keeps things interesting. My brother is an engineer also.

My dad bought a wrecked volvo at copart in Nashville, so Im making a Windrock trip out of it. Since Nashville is 2hours further than Windrock, I drove to the Windmill Inn (where I am staying for the weekend) last night so that I didnt have to do so much driving in one day. Left out at 6:00 this morning to drive the remaining 2 hours and get there at 8:00 right as they open. What I didn't realize is that Nashville is in a different timezone, so Im an hour early. I could have slept for another hour dammit!

That'S pretty awesome. And happy early birthday. So far on my birthday all I've got is a speeding ticket this morning on my way to work. I had to leave for work at 5:15 am, and got stopped 5 min away from getting to work.
