Well I submitted the paperwork for my wife to ride along with me when I return back to work in a few days, pretty excited.rofl-1.gif

She might come back out with me in the future too if she likes it, otherwise she'll get to see it at least once. smile.gif

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

Why doesn't She get her CDL. You guys could make some pretty serious money teaming. Or..........one of you could be brought up on homicide charges!

She'll get the bottom bunk where the cold air is, we slept in the truck last night both on the bottom bunk, wasn't terrible so we shall see. But if anything I'll be on the hot top bunk. shocked.pngrofl-2.gif

Jamie,

This little plan of yours might enable you to experience the third ring of marriage:

1) The engagement ring. 2) The wedding ring. 3) The suffering.

Hey! At least he won't need Rainy's dungeon. Sounds like he's building his own! rofl-1.gif

Seriously Jamie. Best of luck to you on this next adventure. I am sure you will rise to the occasion!

You may wish to research the aviation term "sterile ****pit". Those two words could buy you the time and clarity (with no additional distractions) in a "critical" situation. If discussed in advance it should not cause any issues...

good-luck.gif
