Thank you for the comments. I appreciate my job, really thankful I have one. On the other hand, ready to sit down and relax for a while after this. I might be able to catch a little of summer before it departs. Wish me some good riding weather!

Ouch...been there, done that more times than I care to count. (21 yr AF vet)

I always kept a calendar and would mark the days off. Something was incredibly satisfying about making that big "X" every morning.

Keep your head down and eyes on the horizon, it'll be over before you know it.

Thanks for what you do, man. (24 yr Army vet)
First thing I used to do when I got back was take off my boots and walk barefoot in the grass - Then take the bike out for a bit to warm it up, and back home to grab a beer and change the oil.
