Road Trip...
« on: September 18, 2012, 09:46:28 PM »
Ok, ok... It's no where near the epic journey Okra took. It is, however, a meeting of fellow sawyers... or at least a meeting of one sawyer and one want-a-be sawyer.

In true Okra fashion, I'll save the details for another post...

I'm sorry for the delay guys. My day job has, unfortunately, been very busy. In fact, I worked 22 hours yesterday :(. Anyway, the road trip! Tomorrow is the day. As stated, it won't measure up to the epic journey Okra took and it doesn't involve any large purchases however I feel confidant that something of great value will be gained from the trip. Tomorrow is the day...

Ok guys, I just logged 12 hours of sleep (finally). I can't really say my bags are packed however my truck is washed and full of fuel. I'll be heading southeast for about an hour, in about an hour. Wish me luck!

Since your on the subjects of road trips it has come the time for my migration south. Leaving the   cooled off north to a warmer climate. Best part will be seeing the kids and grandkids along the way. New route this year. Heading south thru Ill. to St. Louis, Memphis, Meridian and then home. Wave if you see me motor by!  LOL

Swampbuggy, if you're taking I-10 into Florida, honk when you pass mile 171.  If I'm home, I can hear it from there. ;)
