    “The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry”. As per usual, I’m not meant to have fun, or so it seems. It doesn’t look like I’m going to Ardbeg. First off, I’ve been dealing with a nasty case of a 7mm kidney stone that hit me half way through my Grand Bend vacation… yippie! Its been dragging on now for 3+ weeks, with no end in sight. The last place I want to be in pain is, in the middle of the bush away from any hospital. If I start having a fever, I need to be in emergency ASAP or I’m in serious trouble.

    Second, my scheduled vacation for Ardbeg has been denied, due to lack of man-power… Awesome!

    Third, the 4Runner is nowhere close to being ready for trail travel.

    Fourth, Im scheduled to work the Saturday, again a lack of man-power.

    Kidney stone trumps work, work trumps fun. I have my head down, walking head first in a gale force wind. Maybe next time ?!?!?


    sorry to hear that Ryan.  Next time!


    oh man that sucks large buddy. just gonna stir the pot here ryan, quick question. are any of the white collar dudes workin’ on the weekend or is it just the blue collar stiffs while they’re sittin’ at cottage hoisting cold ones? by workin’, i mean out on the floor gettin’ grimy along side you!!!! if you answer no to that you guys havta band together n say F&$k you! we need some of our own time also. yeah, in days past i’ve been there n done that

    the first annual tnortt assault on ardbeg is now in the annals of history. a good time was had by all(i believe), fire ban an’ all. we had a visit from the M N R saturday nite. they were cool. i could’ve had a $650.oo fine for a lit hibatchi but they just asked to have it and the citronella buckets put out. marek was able to disguise his dutch oven that cookin’  up a killer stew.

    yes, some carnage ensued but i’ll let the one involved spill it. let’s just say doors don’t like keep a truck from rollin. but thankfully it was up to the task. ran the north trail to the tracks. what last year was a muddy mess this year would’ve made a camel thirsty

    it was great to make new acquaintances, to see old faces.

    trust all had safe voyages home.
