Post by (D/229) Hammer Sat 29 Apr 2017, 23:34

Been a pretty screwed up couple of weeks for me, so Ill probably be in and out of here for the time being.

My dad was struck by a drunk driver while walking with his girlfriend last weekend and now he's torn up head to toe. On top of that, I just managed to live through a heart attack this week and Im just coming home from ICU. Im 39, and last year I was in the best health Ive ever been in, including my time in the Marines, and now I managed to stave off a heart attack without -any- permanent damage whatsoever so long as I take my meds daily now. Meds that arent cheap. On top of that, I might have to go take care of my dad; nobody right now is sure how bad his injuries are at this point. He's had brain damage from his last accident, hes had bleeding in the brain, broken hip, pelvis, broken leg below the knee, broken shoulder and collar bone, severe concussion, and lacerations all up and down his body. At least he isnt a vegetable, but with as bad as he has had it over the last 10 years I dont see him wanting to live a miserable life himself. My dads the only family I have.

Ill be around for the next few weeks, but after that its all a coin toss. Enjoy your lives to the fullest; you dont know what kind of shit you will have to deal with down the line.

Im still alive and kicking. Just arrived a few weeks ago in a small ant mount in Michigan to work on 747s. Trying to get both feet planted on firm ground still, but my sim stuff is still stuck in georgia.

And yep, Im working for Connie Kalitta right now. We're refurbing a 747-400F at the moment. I dont expect to be here long though, heard an offer for Northrop Grumman building Firescouts for a while.

You could end up down by me. Bell Helicopter in Ozark is converting 407's to the MQ-8C right across the runway from our Hangar.

Ill hopefully find out this week, but I think the plant that builds the Fire Scout is nearby Moss Point, Mississippi. Not looking forward to swamp ass again, but Ive been out in the middle of nowhere for the last 6 months.

Thanks for the update brother!

Sorry to hear about your Dad...

Heard good and bad things about Kalitta...nice looking Whale. Fingers crossed on the Grumman helos thing, that would be way cool.

I have a few misgivings about this place myself, mostly safety (or lack of it). Aint much to do up here either, just either drink, work or become a health nut. Im not much a drinker anymore.

Ok, new update...
Hard disk took a much needed dump all over my flight plan this morning. A brand new Corsair Mp300 M.2 NVme disk that newegg sends out to me for free once in a while. So now I have to rebuild my joystick profiles from scratch (again) and do some depot level maintenance on the other hard drives while I have down time. Good thing I ordered this a few days ago before it literally hit the fan... https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147690
