    Now that one made me laugh. lol.


    I'm having to call all around today and see what my best course of action is, whether to leave it at the dealership that it's at, or load it on a flatbed and bring it the rest of the way to Atlanta and have it fixed here. I'm planning for the worst-case scenerio of having to do a whole new long block. I worked as the service manager in motorcycles shops enough to know that my motor is a damn paper-weight now. So, just gotta decide where to take it. Right now it's still sitting in Chattanooga at a dealership.

    Another bad aspect of this is that I still have to go on my trip. There's no "oh my truck broke, can't go, too much to do..." Nope. Still absolutely have to go. No choice. That means that I have to turn over responsibility of this whole ordeal to someone else and I won't know how it all turned out until I come home. Now, on the good side of that, I won't have to be the one who goes back and forth with the mechanics while it's getting fixed and I won't have to deal the the actual transport of the truck. Once I get on that plane on Wednesday morning, I am completely cut off from the world.

    Well. Time to make all my phonecalls. Big thanks to all my homies for chiming in here. I appreciate it guys.

    Glad to have provided you with some humor. Hang in there, soon it will be just an anecdote you tell over a beer. Have a safe trip.

    What a mess. A bright side is you've got a lot to look forward to when you get back....

    Sorry to hear about your friend's loss, sounds like you're the kind of friend we all wish we had.

    Wise counsel. However bad things seem, there are always about 5,000,000 people in America who would gladly trade places with you.

    Sorry to hear about the truck and the friend's wife. I know a reasonable guy here in Cummming if you need it I'll go introduce you to him. He has done a lot of work for the guys I work with and has always treated us right.

    Sorry to hear you had a crap shoot of a day there. Whenever I have a bad day I think of my friend at Camp Pendelton USMC Boot Camp, Then my day doesn't seem so bad.

    Well, I'd like to say nothing like that ever happened to me.

    Can't.

    All you can do is shake it off and move on.
