Oooooooohhhh man, Dave, you sure said a mouthful there! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
I know you know all about this, Dave, but...
Last summer when my buddy Steve and I took our Jeep trip around the country, we simply stepped off the face of the earth to go and see the country. Planned the trip over the winter of 99/2000, quit our Engineering jobs in May of 2000, and set out with a tent and sleeping bags for 4 1/2 months and 19,000 miles in a 94 YJ. What a great thing to do, especially at the age of 33, when one can appreciate all of the aspects of how different people live the life they've been given. Yeah, I could have stayed home, and worked, and done more to my Jeep, but I will never, ever, regret that trip, or the loss of money and time that it meant.
Now, having been back at work since last November, I continue to see people who think that this part of your life (work) actually means something. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] It really doesn't.
Life is short, folks. Get out and see the world, and meet the people who make it go 'round. It's an amazing, wonderful thing.
