Nah...I know there comes a time when no matter how much you are getting paid, you just need a break for your sanity. I'm putting in a couple hours a day right now and will keep going as much as they let me. And, when they ask for people to stay late, I usually get the gig. I'm a worker...I take my calls and knock out as many as I can. The more calls I get taken care of, the happier the higher ups are. They don't like calls holding. I don't BS either...give me the call...get me there...find a solution...get'er done and get back in service. So many others just sit...and hold calls....or take their time writing the calls and others who want to get everything taken care of so they can be free to do other stuff don't get to. So, you get workers and non-workers. While we all know who the slugs are, nothing is really done about them. I just can't wait until I'm one of the higher ups so I can start doing something more about it...other than bitching.

Anyway...getting off on a tangent.

Yep...I'd jump at the OT as well. Stinks that can't really sit back and breathe, though.
I'll actually be gone the next five weeks or so, I'll probably arrive home in very late August...

As for the promotional stuff, keep the nose in the books and even if it doesnt occur immediately, learn from the testing process and know there is a reason for all of it... The internal politics << can I say that word... can be hell sometimes...

Yup, but, I'm happily married to a wonderful woman that I look forward to gettning home to see, so, just the drink with an umbrella will suffice...

With the six point roll bar, it's down to 10 seconds bolted in, but I also ordered the eight point add on and will weld the cage in so I'll be certified down to 8.5 second passes...

Good call. Using only bolts to hold those in scares me.

Are they gonna tear down your dash like they did with Speedster's car for the cage? Good luck on board out there. Praying for smooth seas, arrrrr...... Sea jargon (yeah I'd be the guy looking for a bucket of A.I.R.)

Nope, no tearing down of the dash... On this kit, the down tubes run down right next to the dash... Thats why I want to see them in place before we weld them in. If I dont like the look, or it makes it too inconvienent to get in and out of the car, we may tear the dash down and go through there... Time will tell... The Six point roll bar may be mostly installed before I get home, but Corey is holding off on the halo and downtubes until I'm there to look at it... I wont be running that fast of a pass until I get my diff anyway...

Thanks for the well wishes on the weather... There is no whistling on this rig right now... whistling up a wind is a bad thing...

With all that tubing you could weld it to the top of Brandi and make you own Onshore Oil Rig... You'd feel right at home.
