Hey guys...sorry I haven't checked in for a while.
Been finding it depressing to read.
Came back from the last recovery attempt empty handed. Drove the 500 miles to Santa Fe NM, from Fort Collins CO, and then got turned back by the weather. You know...because I had to be back for work...at my great job...which I just screwed myself over financially, to MOVE, to be closer to. Couldn't wait for the weather to clear.
Came back and got fired. (!?) Crazy. I haven't been fired from anything since high school.
So basically been sitting in the basement with the dogs feeling like poo.
Selling stuff off on craigslist to make the rent. Haven't had the money to go back for another attempt in a while.
I DO have a plan though. This isn't *all* a whine-rant.
The plan is--screw it. I am sick of info tech. Sick of working to make some other a-hole rich. Changing my plans. Retiring early and lean.
Ural goes into a toy hauler (If I ever get it back) and I am going full-time gypsy. Will treasure hunt my way around America and do whatever blows my provervbial skirt up. Maybe I will start a blog about it or something figure out how to make a little money that way. Treasure Dave? Two-dog Dave? I don't know. Maybe even make a little spot change hauling people's Urals from one state to another.
So...let's call it a super crappy year--with a giant revelation at the end leading to a huge positive life change. A big steamy peanut and corn dog turd, with a silver lining...or maybe that's a piece of tinfoil. (dang it, Charlie...)
Either way--there's a Ural in the back of that rig (With a WINCH on it and a MASDAM in the trunk) so I will still be around.
Anyone got a truck that will tow 18000lb GVW?
