August??? That is sad my friend. However, I can't brag of a much better situation. I work part time, with no schedule whatsoever, and only hope for maybe six or eight weekends and a possible 3-4 one week trips. We used to get out ninety nights a year. Between my wife's work commitments and my own, it is difficult. The good news is that we both love our work. We are just completing some big improvements on the boat, and hope to get out in April, before I go on the road for work.
As you know, I had my falling out with the Forum, but I am almost over it, and missed you and many others on the site, so I will give it another go. Thanks for being the person you are. I look forward to many years of exchanging our experiences.
