What comes after "Insane" build?

...and what was that bump? That was the front tires coming back down

If I don't visit with you before monday, safe journey

Thanks Bro...

I don't think the front tires will be coming off the ground, at least I hope not...

Hey man, if I don't chat with you before Monday, have a safe rotation! Guess that's what you call it. No swimming this time. Be safe out there!

Thank you Brother... We call them hitches but rotation works as well...

I can't promise no swimming, but I can promise you if I am something has gone catastrophically wrong... I will not be going down on any pontoons this trip...

Meant to post this up day before yesterday... got busy doing other stuff... But here is an update from Corey...

Message body

Turbo's are at precision getting looked at. I think they got there Tuesday. Lee dropped off the trany a couple days ago as well. He said there was obvious damage to the 4th gear parts and the new synchro slider was an updated piece. Should work like a champ. So I'm going to call on the turbo's on monday to see what's up. Other than that, I was going to call you today to see what was up but didn't get a spare second until just now. It's been a couple of long short weeks if you know what I mean.

Good luck in Mexico. Maybe things will be better this time around. :-) Be safe, email often, and we'll see you when you get back.

Corey

It's getting there... slowly but surely... I'll mke the best of working in Mexico... It's already been such a pain in the backside just trying to get ready... It's sad that I can travel half way around the world and work in a muslim country with substantially less hassle....

Here's hoping for a great year for all of us...

Heck, we have these little boats that should keep you from having to go in a pontoon again. Be safe down there.

Yeah, the higher the goals the more time, setbacks and slowdowns. Goes with the territory. Brandi will be up and running like a rabid dog this year !

Hey all,

Thanks for the well wishes... I am back on the rig after a lil over 5 months... In many ways it's good to be back... for one I feel a productive member of society again... but mostly for the good people I work with on the rig...

We spend more time with our co-workers than we do our families and it's important to me to have access to such good friends...

So far all is well and good with me being back on the water... My OIM, big boss, and I had a long sit down yesterday... I think it was good for both of us... I genuinely respect and like this man... He is a good one to work for...

I will be home before too long, and if I stay on my current schedule, I will mosty assuredly be at the Camaro Fest in Indy... Woo HOO...
