Back on the trail…..

A really messed up nights slumber….. felt like I slept about 4 different times… BUT- each time felt like a good deep slumber – so when I figured my Queen was done doing her thing – I rolled on out to greet the day this morning. It was still only 06:30 and even though I was late to bed after our delicious meal last night. My Queen made us a breakfast a little bigger than I wanted, but like the hog I am, I went ahead and cleaned my plate…. regretting it later as I started moving ATV’s across the street for todays romp through the rain forest and mountain top. Once you have reached a particular age (and it varies with everybody)…… bouncing around those trails starts taking it’s toll on you. Today, thankfully was 1 tour and I knew the ‘ring leader’ of the group. I consider her a friend and she was hosting friends of theirs from the states. They were prompt and had their paperwork all filled out and we were soon on our way. We have had just enough rain to leave us a couple of sizable mud puddles up on the mountain top and our friend was bound determine to ‘race‘ through everyone of them. She was handling her machine well, so I let her and took an enormous amount of satisfaction, seeing the grin on her face as splashed through each big puddle. She even managed to douse me in mud as I positioned myself “in harms way” to get pictures of said mud splashing….. Because they were ”friends of friends” we took the long scenic way back for a little added treat. Back at the yard – everyone looked to have enjoyed themselves. They got cleaned up and was soon on their way.  We got the bikes cleaned up, gassed up and put away for a very long day tomorrow. The ‘boss’ has already sent two revisions to our schedule… and that’s just today… so we now have a very long week coming up.

The day I hoped to sneak out and do a dive for my other Boss has now been blown out the window with the newest schedule….. but other Boss knew that was a distinct possibility when I took the job…… there will be other times for me to make up the dives….. So—  a bite to eat, a shower, hopefully a wee better nights sleep and tomorrow another [[looooong]] day on the trails (3 tours)……………….. I suspicion trail pictures may get a bit repetitive for you all, so I’ll try to put some other older dive pictures in as well to hopefully help keep them all interesting…….

Good Night Ya’ll = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = Thankx for stopping in~!

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
