And bro, you are free to harass me as much as you like, I've certainly thrown crap your way PBB...


My family always dealt with the bad times using humor. Even death. It's just how we cope.

If my dad came home with news of getting fired or layed off, the 'Lazy good for nothing', or 'if you could hold down a job' jokes started immediately.

But you gotta admit, that tranny of RuSSs is pretty damn cool.

The guy that got washed under the rig when I did and I were actually laughing and joking about the antics of some of the rail rats on the rig trying to help us... Ring bouys were raining down like hail. They were all trying, but there was just so much they could do, so we laughed as opposed to crying

Most of the people responded in great fashion, including and maybe most of all the crane operator that was in bed when this happened, he heard the commotion, and saw that the on tour crane op was stuck in his crane, so Chris ran out of the living quarters in his pjs and house slippers across the rig, into the port crane, no hard hat, no steel toe boots, no safety glasses, and put the port crane out to port Towards us and was lowering the ball into the water to give us something to hold onto...

Good to know you work with some good and competant people.

At any rate, if it comes to it, we'll gladly add you to team auto.

Rob...

From one sailor to another...

I'm glad you are feet dry...

I'm very glad you are feet dry...

I don't want to over state the severity... but some of these guys don't really understand where you were and the chances of making it out...

Well done my friend.. Well done...

In the spirit of Naval tradition...

Quote:
Although the rum ration was diluted in an attempt to maintain sobriety on board, extra tots were commonly dispensed as rewards for exemplary service or acts of heroism. Before going into battle, captains sometimes ordered a tot for the crews to make them more "brave and willing." And the capture of an enemy prize was always celebrated with yet more drink for the crew.
At the next fest, you and I will have a tot of rum my friend, and toast to your full and complete recovery.

You are a true class act, I wish you and a few of your fellow navy rescue peeps had been there, I know we would have had others in the water with us specifically trained for what we went through... It sucked, and I will gladly tip a tot of rum in the true spirit of naval people everywhere...

Rescue swimmers are absolutely some of the baddest dudes around... I've now been in need and understand the complete loss of any control of movement or choice... You are entirely at motion mercy of the sea and the inability to affect the movement of the steel...

Thanks for the well wishes...

thanks for the kind words.

I'm thinking some divine protection had more to do with it than anything any man could have done.



Waiting for some good news from the doc.

Keep us posted.

Will do on the updates, and yes, the Lord above was watching over me and gave me what I needed to get out...

Well have to see if there is a picture pf the two of them and use some geometry to determine the angle of the shadows if available and correlate the distance from the camera and the foca.... Or wait until the next fest and stand them side by side..
But it's possible....questionable,

Thanks Em, it is good to be up and around, at least for a few more days...

I took the camera, but didn't have anything of mine to photograph... We spent most of the day working on the Bonneville Flats car...

Corey told me they would have some shop space starting tomorrow and that as soon as I can get around well enough to tear the interior out of my car, we'll start on the cage... With most likely pending surgery, I'm sure he will end up doing most of the work, but is letting me help with what I physically can... I can't drive the car right now anyway, so no hurry, but, as soon as we start pulling the interior, I'll be taking lots of pics...

I would like to thank Tag and Tran for assisting me with a project I've wanted to do for a while...

I had a blank post added to the first page of my build thread, and used it to build a table of contents..

It is a work in progress, and I'll take any suggestions for improvements...

I haven't had time to link all the pictures, but there is a directory to the appropriate post...


Most of All,

Thank you to all of the guests and people whom have posted up in my build thread or just visited. It's been a heck of a ride and I'm so glad to be a part of Camaro5, the Forum, the Family...

More mods are on the way... So, stay tuned...

That's a great idea. I've been wanting to do something like that in my build thread, but didn't know how to do it.

If I remember correctly, they did it the way they combine links, they just collect a post somewhere and add it in and then remove all the text, and allow you to edit it...

Tag can hook you up...

Yup, yup!

I've been thinking about that too. I'd rather have links or a "table of contents" taking you to places in the thread than having the first page so cluttered up and taking forever to download as well. Hrm...
