      I feel your pain brother!
      Before our RZR 900s was stolen I had a branch get flung like a spring, or catapult, from the roll cage into my eye, and we were cruising along at around 50..
      ER trip, nothing in it, referral to eye doc, about 15 drop prescriptions..
      We were working as AAA roadside techs, so every morning 6am, sunrise to 9pm, 6 day shifts.. if we didn't need the paychecks I was advised to stay in a dark area.. I regret it!! It still bothers me if I dream of it and remember how it hurt, then I'll notice how it's working at a different level than the other..
      How do us serious explorers send flowers?
      8mm, 10mm sockets, inner and outer door handles, brown wires, relays with cut blades, tranny filter & gasket?!
      Definitely get well soon, and we hope to get to meet you in person with our rig in the near future ;)

      Well now that I've read this entire thread....

      Rick, I hope all goes well for your eyes and your wifes health. Prayin for ya.
      As to the Meet, I was just mentioning to my wife today that there is "an annual meet out west called "truckhaven" that i'd love to go to". I read this and realized that the place is called truckhaven not the meet, but you get the jist. Would love to head out there if its been rescheduled to Nov. Sandi and I may be able to make it. We could hook up the camper and boondock it. Has it been rescheduled? If so.. when?

      @Rick, Really glad to hear your eye is on the mend. and really glad to hear Char's Kidney's dialysis bad (The wife of the person in the cube next to me at work is on dialysis and on the transplant list so I get to hear how scary that is...)

      I'm still up in the air as to making it when it's rescheduled... After Multiple interviews and a long agonizing wait for a decision, I was offered the job. It's a big pay raise, doing the same work BUT with more responsibility and I go from unlimited vacation to 120 hours of PTO per year (use for sick and vacation). At least I get a free (paid)week between Christmas and New Years as they shut down for the week.

      15 days of sick/PTO combined since I'm starting over in seniority. It'll be interesting for the first few years but I can flex time (work extra before I go somewhere and use the time on the days I take off). I just won't have anything accrued this year. . I'm hoping I get to continue to work the 9/80 schedule which is every other friday off so it's possible I can still do a Friday-Sunday.

      Since I got a big raise I may re-gear and finally get off 33's (go to 35's) on one of the first few paychecks.. Then I'll switch to doing the prudent stuff with the money (try to catch up more on my retirement and double the emergency fund).
