All the unpleasantness aside...

..I have experienced a busy, productive & interesting summer!

Both the wife & I have gotten promotions along with substantial raises!

Lots of out of state trips this summer visiting friends & family on the "Mighty V'! The new Michelin Pilot Road 3 Trails have performed perfectly....plus very satisfied with the latest chain/sprocket combo. And the above combined with new Ceramic Pads front & rear inspire even more confidence rain or shine.


Three new gun concept projects went into high gear after the arrival to my dealer of the 2nd AAC SPR/M4 & an AAC 762SD..

..along with the approval of the 1st SPR/M4.

How's the weight loss plan going? I guess you won't be working overseas will ya?

Do you call it mighty V because it performs like an elderly swayback?

different response

"Survival" is not a concept exclusively reserved for shtf.

I heard a harmonic problem with the rear end of the car. Of course, I looked and it wasn't anything in the trunk or a broken clamp. So, I took the car in for 7:45 am this morning and had my honest mechanic take a look. Strut bushings gone bad. So, there is some work to be done. Parts may be in within a week. If so, then I have a perfectly functioning car again.

Part of the survival mentality is to keep things in good repair.

Along those lines, I have two full size single bit axes in the office for servicing, cleaning and sharpening this weekend. I worked on the chewed up, not so nicely designed machete yesterday and it has been replaced by a better machete that will handle bamboo in the backyard.

Ran 10K. Normal fun run on Sat morning. I wasn't even pushing myself.


Love the almost fall morning temp and salty air.

Then again, it's just too easy because I wasn't carrying >900 rounds of ammo.

Increased my workout time by - believe it or not - putting up a better TV mount. I like to watch tv while on the elliptical walker in the bedroom, but our bedroom tv is small (15" iirc) and the flat wall mount made the angle difficult. New tilt/swivel mount lets the tv be seen better from the angle the walker is at, which makes time on the walker more pleasant & distracted, which makes for more time on the walker. So new tv mount actually helps with workouts.

May sound silly, stupid, and even like a weakling's approach; but as my hillbilly father used to say, "If it's stupid but it works, it ain't stupid."

Nope, you are absolutely correct.

Best thing I did was put my workout equipment in the family room in the back and putting my 27" with full cable there so I can ride the stationary bike and work out on weights with it on.

Makes for a way more pleasant and easy time.

I don't know really. I've posted much more than usual this year for some reason. A few threads here have really interested me lately. I've had more travel time taking care of investments and consulting. That leads to more GT time for me than the outdoor overnight recreation I've enjoyed in the past.
