      My wife and I took one last ride on our four wheelers. We rode part way, up a rocky ravine. I passed a rock on the right side of the four wheeler. In return, this rock was kind enough to catch the toe of my shoe and turn my foot all the way around for me. In the process I broke my fibula and tore several ligaments.

      Went to the ER, where they told me that I would most likely have to have surgery to fix it. That happened about 8 days later in Reno, NV. They had to install a plate and some screws.

      So now I'm hoping to get back to work soon. For now, I'm in the plastic boot and crutches.

      Today, I'm feeling old, as I top the hill and slide down the other side. Turning 30 wasn't that bad, but I'm having trouble with 40...... smiley3.gif

      I wanted to post to catch everyone up on our western expansion.

      Made it to the west and it was very cold.

      Took a day trip to Lake Tahoe (just 5 hours from home)

      It's been a big change moving from the 3000 sqft. house to a 350 sqft. Class A RV.

      We had to say goodbye to our old man, and boy did my wife take it hard.

      Since I have a company truck now, We sold my truck and bought some four wheelers, and they area blast!

      We sold my Wife's supercar and bought something that goes in the snow.

      My wife couldn't take it, she needed a new addition, so we drove to Merced, CA to pick up a puppy.

      My Niece moved out here from St. Louis to start her new life (this is making the 350 sqft. even tighter)

      We all went camping and saw some cool nature.

      We took off from St. Louis Friday morning and made it to Nebraska. Then we made it to Wyoming.
      165045_10151296924043279_1005612267_n.jp
      Then we had a problem with my truck, it developed a whine in the transmission or rearend. We had to rent a Uhaul and a car hauler.

      We made it yesterday evening and unloaded the Uhaul and returned it.

      The movers are here to pack our lives into brown boxes. Tomorrow they will haul it all off to later be delivered to Elko, NV. From there it will all go into a storage unit since our new house isn't quite big enough.

    • One More Day

      3 years ago

      RobusMaximus

      So much for flying out tomorrow. My flight will have to wait one more day and hope that there are no more cancellations or delays. It's been three weeks since I left home to start my new job. Looks like one more night in the hotel room. I'd stay in the RV, but I have no linens and all of the plumbing is still winterized.

      At least I will get to see my wife before Christmas, but only by a few hours. IF there are no more delays.

      Yeah, I had to develop a strategy as well to beat him, but those first couple of times He and his soldiers killed me quite quickly.


      Mine was just the legion though during the middle of the game. I never had to fight the Legate because I had 100% Speech and I convinced him that he didn't have a chance. So I just never fought him at the end.

      One time they killed me like three times (good thing I had just waited and it was saved) until I finally found a strategy to beat them.

      The first map is one that Spider made. It's pretty cool. You would have to ask him about the file share.

      Awesome!

      Yeah that was actually a whole big deal here a while back. I know the guy that was giving the rides. His parents go to our church. He was apparently sitting at the bus station and stuff like that and taking tips for the rides.

      He wasn't completely honest on his end of the deal. All they wanted him to do was get a cab license, but I'm not sure that he was eligible to get one because of prior decision he made in his life.

      It'd have been hilarious. Lot of my British friends were being little ponces about the tied game. If we'd have gone on and won-Oh it'd be mass chaos.

      xD And it'd be glorious to see. Maybe next World Cup. Most all our players are young and talented. Another four years and they'll be at the top of their game.
