Edgar G.'s Bio

Retired from a law enforcement position last year. Divorced and lost 40% of my retirement, so now I need to make some money.

Wet Shaving possible or a trucker?

In Germany when you need to "whizz," you **** on a wall.

No joke. I when I left in 1989 most urinals, except in the newest buildings, were a brick, block, or rock walls with a trough at the bottom and some kind of plumbing arrangement dribbling a little water down the wall.

Great Youtube videos BTW.

FYI, that prison in Baltimore is not a federal prison. There is only one federal prison in Maryland. It's far west in Cumberland--way up in the hills. The oldest federal prison still in operation is in Leavenworth, KS. I work there. It opened in 1897.

Japanese Beds

That's the beauty of the Japanese Bed. All it is is a mattress. A mattress that you can throw on the floor, on a tatami or bamboo mat, or on some kind of platform. It doesn't care. What is so special about it is the spinal support that's built into the material from which the mattress is constructed.

Japanese Beds

Great videos?

Could you remove the existing bunk and replace it with one of the twin sized Japanese beds?

Or if a bunk can't be removed, cut a piece of plywood to lay over it then put the Jap bed on top of it?

Japanese Beds

Greetings everyone. I'm not a Trucker, just considering it at this point. So I'm no expert. And I don't know what those sleeper beds ere like. But, this may be an option to help keep a back healthy:

Prime Inc and sleep apnea

Dan! I'm here too, just did my sleep study cause I'm over weight, but I have my appointment and two thirty today. Hopefully I'll see you around! If everything goes good, though, I should be leaving this evening with my trainer.

From your pic you don't look overweight. What do they consider to be overweight??
