So it looks like something happened to the original thread and I have the site owners looking into it. I messaged them last Friday and just got a response late Sunday afternoon.

In the meantime we'll have to use this and if the original can be found or recovered they can be merged.

I would ask this time that it not be another meme thread which isn't to say none but it had turned into a bit FB landing zone for memes.

I was just sitting here, icing my knee, watching the snow fall and thinking;

It’s easier to recover from knee surgery during a snow storm, because I’m not bummed that I can’t take advantage of riding weather.

Delta was spot on and the first to respond to steal away United business.

Airline fees are like taxes; once their implemented, you’ll never see them go away. I don’t know what Delta charges to transport a bike but I doubt that it’s much cheaper than United’s.
Generally probably not but when they have a chance to shine in the social media format if only for a brief moment they'll beat them I'm sure.

Shoot yeah!!
Good food and maybe a selection of beer and I’d stay until the music ended our money ran out.
We went to Charlottesville last weekend and had dinner...NEVER again will I go there AND I'd be VERY worried if I had any kids that went to school there.

I'm a whopped :D I H A T E on call weeks. This one didn't start to bad but by Friday night...it was all over. My first outage was some rear easement aerial ( the worst possible combination you could get ). I had 4 spans laying on the ground, a broken pole and and yea, not only was it rear easement aerial it was down in a M^%$ F*&^ ravine so at 2:30 in the morning I'm trying navigate, see and repair all this BS.
This is the broken pole and you can see the "bell steps" used to get up it.

Tree that fell and snapped the pole, you can see Verizons splice case under the tree.

This is the pole before the tree fall, it moved that pole a good 6" + inches. Hard to tell in the picture the actual gab

Had to go back Saturday afternoon to make all the temporary repairs. Like any photo of a hill you can't get the feel of the steepness of this ravine. I walked to the end where you can see some homes here and the cable all looped up. It was a mess

It just went down hill after that( no pun intended ). Think I had 26 hour of OT in the past 2.5 days...I'm done and still have until Wednesday morning to go....

Can’t like that post
I no more than finished Stage 7 of TDZ this morning and got paged with another outage. Got on site and guess what? Another tree down, another broken pole and more splicing on my part. Easy work really and the timing worked out well. Able to finish my ride, it was during the day AND it wasn't raining- that's a BIG one for us :D

All that extra money is a nice thing to have. However, if you don’t have the time to enjoy it, it’s practically useless unless you put it aside for when you have time to spend it; like retirement.
It's a nice added bump to the 401k for sure :D
