Yeah we're getting very little of anything storm related.

Classes got cancelled for the whole week because our campuses in Savannah and Hinesville were in the evacuation zone, meaning they shut down our main campus over here in Statesboro too, since some students enrolled over at those campuses take classes at ours, and it wouldn't really work to have students not knowing which classes they actually need to go to. 

It's funny, when I was a student I would have loved a week-long hurricane break. On the other side of things I'm sitting here angry I have to reschedule like five assignments into next week. 

When you're here and settled I'll buy you lunch or something.

Cool! Whereabouts in the area? Most people I know who move over there end up living in Pooler because it's closer for the commute to Statesboro. 



That's where I'm ending up as well!  I'll be driving to Stewart every day, but I figure the little extra commute will be worth it to be closer to Savannah, Hilton Head, and Tybee on the weekends.  Looks like my closing is going to be pushed back a little bit due Dorian closing everything down this week, but I'm glad I haven't had to worry about any potential damage this go around.

I still exist. I grew up and stopped being a useless, piece of crap, teenager. Now I'm just useless. Got on disability without a lawyer. Somehow. Almost went to prison, didn't, got my crap together. Have a Girlfriend. No marriage plans until I can get off disability. And I have my attainable dream car, which may not sound like much, but I love it. A 2004 WRX Wagon with full STI swap. Also, I lied. I'm a lady.

My son joined the Marines, he left on July 29th. He has started his first training day yesterday.  The wife and I got a call from him at 12:38 a.m., I heard the DI's in the back ground of his 14 second call.  My wife cried...I laughed.  Brought back memories of my days on Parris Island.

The last couple of weeks have been a real nail biter.  I made a plan in July to drive my car down to Haines then take the ferry over to Juneau this month.  In Juneau, I was going to put my car in a storage unit until I move in October.  The first week of October is when winter weather starts to move in to the mountain passes between here and Haines, and I don't want to chance that in a Mustang with summer tires.  This way, in October I can just fly down to Juneau, get my car out, and get on the ferry to Washington.  So I got the unit rented, booked the ferry, made all of my travel reservations, and 2 weeks ago, the ferry workers went on strike.  I was scheduled leave this coming Tuesday for the drive down, and the ferry workers and state finally reached a deal yesterday with service resuming tomorrow.

Basically just got back from 3 weeks off work.

Week one was spent in WV teaching rising high-school sophomores how to do home repairs. My crew replaced porch railings and built a new 14x10 roof over the existing porch to prevent water from coming in through the door when it rained. We fielded 12 work crews this year, taking up an entire county center ourselves for one full week. It was our best year yet in my opinion. All the kids wanted to be there and were willing to pitch in for everything.

Week two was spent at the Barony Beach Club by Marriott down on Hilton Head. Sister and Bro-in-law have a condo there they inherited. Used an unused week from last year and one of their weeks this year to take the whole fam-damily on vacay for free. It was pretty nice.

Week three was spent catching up on a little paperwork and emails, and then heading off to do some light hiking in WV before heading to my folks' place for the evening of the 4th, the 5th, and morning of the 6th. Did Beartown State Park (beautiful), Cranberry wilderness, and Cranberry Glades in the Monongahela National Forest, and then the Falls of Hills Creek as well.

This week, I'm working all week, along with the next two. Then it's off to Williamsburg where it will be blisteringly hot for the week we're there.

With our record heat and over 750k acres burned so far this year, fireworks remain very illegal up here.  But I spent the 4th in Hermosa Beach and got to experience my 2nd 7.1 earthquake in 6 months.  I was something like 100 miles from the epicenter so just felt a little bit of a shake this time around.  I was happy about that.

Didn't really feel outgunned. We played 1v1 at the end, "speedsoft" style. The kids had nice gats, but were just terrible at that style of play. And even during the regular matches, my biggest gripes were that the hopup didn't seem to be adjusted correctly, and I had a  bunch of blanks due to the BB's not feeding correctly.

Indoor airsoft is fun, but the equipment is annoying.

A kid with a 98 Custom, a $30 aftermarket barrel, and a 20oz CO2 isn't really that outgunned compared to someone with a high end marker still today.

Airsoft? Pffft. I got wrecked by a ton of people with Polarstars when I had a JG P90. Even upgraded I was no match for HPA.

Ordered a new pair of JT Proflex's, my old ones were trashed and I threw them away. The new pair seems a little different, apparently empire took them over, but for only $60 they are by far the best bang for the buck and comfy. No way was I going to pay $180 for Dye I5's.
