Taking some mandatory online training.  Can't just read the screens, have to wait for the slow-talking recording lady to read them to me before clicking through to the next screen.

About 2/3 through and I accidentally did a "refresh" thinking i was refreshing a page in a different browser window. IT STARTED OVER :wall: Took about 30 minutes just to get back to where I was. :wall:

And now I just had to sit through a couple minute mock "karaoke" video where some broad was singing about her poor practice of taking care of confidential documents. JFC kill me.

HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad

Well, at least it's not workplace diversity training.

I, I wish you could drink

At a real bar.

Like real barflies drink.

Though nothing.... nothing will keep us sober

We could buy you drinks forever and ever

We must really be jackholes.  For you to drink at the hotel

I, I'll eat at Burger King.

And you - you'll eat at Dairy Queen.

Though it has no drive through

We must really be jackholes.  For you to get out of your car.

You could have had Burger King.  And stayed in the car.

heckmanm - so your eyes are so bad you can't read the screen?  No glasses?  Can't be corrected?

Anyone have any recommendations for a portable charger and/or solar charger for iPhone?  I need to be able to use my phone for up to six days without having an electrical source.  The lighter weight, the better, though.  I'll be backpacking.

I'll look at those - thanks.  If I can find one that'll give me a couple of charges without solar, I'll probably do that.  The solar ones are heavier.

I've had a solid experience with this one.  Charged our phones and ran USB powered fans to sleep with during Irma for two nights. Used the same in Cuba for a couple nights to power a fan at night.  Luxurious.

headed tp pismo beach on the 5th, to redneck it up with my inlaws from HI!  just rented quads for the kids and we are meeting another inlaw that lives out of his rv and has nearly every toy possible.  3 more racing quads :unsure: 2 dune buggies, a specialized bouldering jeep(i have driven this, it's unreal) some other jeep, a lifted monster truck type thing and 2 jet skis.  after 3 days of high octane fun,  we are headed for the sequoia's for a week of camping.  can't wait!

You’re just one Trump bumpersticker away from being a Bakersfiledian.

Don’t look elsewhere for this. You really need to think about what you would want to know about the job, its challenges, their expectations, etc.   The headhunter shouldn’t need to prompt you for this.  

 

This is what I did. I just went with the flow and asked what pertained to what I would be doing.

Wow, the new model claims 5.5 iPhone 8 charges.  Seems worth the 10.7 ounce weight. :thumbup:

@krista4 Shark move, buy two of them

Need to keep weight down as much as possible.  The one DR posted is lighter, so tempting for that reason, but the RS one claims to have more charges.  Might get both and see how many charges I get from them, but I'm not going to carry more than one.

Thanks, Lambskin. Hey guys. I know y'all are here but I didn't want to participate incorrectly and make Frosty mad. On the real though, anytime you need an extra man in Austin hit me up. I'm in a really good place right now, it'd be a positive addition.

For me, one of the most fun things about camping, hiking, backpacking, etc. is the planning and prepping. Trying to fit everything that you need into the smallest and lightest pack as possible is really a fun game that begins long before the actual trek.

To a beginner, it may seem like just filling a backpack...but those who have done it often know that it not just what you stuff, but how and where you stuff. Weight bearing is important...quick access to high priority items is important...weather protection is important.

Wow...I'm getting all excited just typing this!

Have fun K!

I can think of 10 oz of other things to survive a six day hike.

8 minutes at best. But it wouldn’t be a waste.

But there is a thing called Uber that takes you wherever you would like to go. I use it all the time so I am not drinking in crappy hotel bars but awesome places, which are plentiful in Austin.

I go to places, but at some point I have to go back to my hotel.  And wala! there is another bar there.

Sorry, next time.  My schedule when I am down has been so unpredictable lately.

Hand off complete. I'm in.

My brother and I went in on splitting a hog (not a euphemism) and I'm heading to Maryland in a few to pick up my share.
