Ron & Jerry

Hopefully the weather will cooperate for you. I remember Jerry couldn't get on the road last year, just too cold. Say'in a prayer.

That really sux. Good luck and keep us informed. Tell Jean if we need to come by and abuse, I mean HELP you, to let us know.

If it's cold/rainy, we're gonna cage it. If warm and sunny, maybe Wing-it.  We just need to get past the first 200 miles... I was in Macon today and the weather was great (after about 11 am).

Shawn,

Looking; forward to meeting you. I forgot to welcome you to the looney bin. Don't forget to ask Ron for a signing bonus.

Thanks Larry, I will miss seeing you.  I have been trying to find the picture of me and Jean at the first Last Blast at Blackwater Inn but it is eluding me.

Y'all have fun, hopefully next year

We're going to miss it also :'(

Don't feel too bad for Irene and me... our older son, his wife, and little daughter fly out that morning, so we'll be with them and taking them to the airport.

We will miss all of you nuts!

Thanks Larry...much appreciated.  I believe we may have met at the '16 Last Blast (which was my first one), but I was just trying to figure out who was who back then. :-[

Look forward to seeing you again in a couple weeks.  Ron didn't mention a signing bonus, so I can only conclude he kept it. :rotflmao:

I TOTALLY understand your stance. I had C5-C7 fused on July 3rd. I was in the Aspen collar for 12 weeks and couldnt wait to get that thing off. What no one told me was once the collar wasnt required, that there was a whole new level of pain and headaches.  Daily headaches are now my new normal, and can be intense at times. The thought of wearing a helmet now is not even in my thought process. I cant imagine the pain from the wind pushing the head/helmet every which way that it does. Best of luck with your surgery and hopefully your recovery will be different than mine is.

Damn Nicole, that really sucks, what does the doctor say about the pain and headaches.  It is hell you go through surgery for pain and afterwards you still have pain AND constant headaches.  Wow, hopefully you get well soon.
