Can’t wait for everyone to stop by I’m really excited to meet some new faces and talk shop. All day I’ve been cleaning and moving furniture around in the basement. I put away a lot of stuff and moved the couch that was in the middle of the open area of the basement against a wall to open everything up. There’s a lot more room down there. Now off to clean the upstairs.

Sorry Justin about your flight that sucks the weather looks really bad out by you. Glad you were refunded all your money have some drinks tonight and watch a movie.


See everyone tomorrow and no worries I have lots of ear plugs for everyone.

Mike

Man...need to find a raffle proxy! Sucks I can't make it and sucks even more that my contact in Colorado won't be to Denver until later tomorrow so now I am waiting on him to start this stupid project.

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.

Detroit guys traffic report. Looks decent most of the way. Caution Boys in Blue Kzoo and beyond. Lots of construction on the last 60 miles of 94 as well.

The Indiana welcome center is reopened.

Construction at I65 interchange can bring it down to a crawl out of nowhere. Watch for ridiculous amounts of 18 wheelers.

Be safe all. See you soon.

Thanks for the heads up bro. I'm not fond of the Chicago traffic, so I've always taken this alternate route (its less traffic, more rural, and I like it a ton)

Just found out my drivers license expired 8 days ago when I try to rent a car. I hope I can get through the security gate when I leave tonight. What is crazy is the Security agent at Atlanta didn’t mention it.

You’ll be fine. An expired license doesn’t matter to tsa within a certain time
