1. Heard a noise from the rear of the R while driving <20 mph with the windows down. My first thought was the driver side rear wheel bearing. I changed the passenger side last winter and at the time thought it's only a matter of time until I will need to change the driver side. I drove some more trying to reproduce the sound to no avail. I haven't jacked it up to inspect yet.

2. MobileMe is going down. I have a LOT of photos (600+) there to move to iCloud or elsewhere. Ugh. That means most of the photos I've posted over the years are going away until I can repost them.

1. Faboulous weekend forecast. Perhaps a full vehicle detail can be squeezed in, but they typically take me 16+ hours. I might only be able do just the exterior or the interior, but not both.

Dude that would be legit the best meet ever. I have the subwoofer in my trunk however I have never tried to fit the clubs in there haha I do however have a 100 pack of Callaways back there ;). My clubs rarely leave my rear seats as I rarely have back seat passengers.

Get a fat friend. But that may be a little difficult for someone like you with such an abrasive personality :D

RAVES!
I'm getting laid off! Although I would prefer to quit on my own terms, this does mean that I won't have to deal with my boss anymore :thumbup:
Fly Fishing is HOT right now. Last weekend and this week, AMAZING Brown Drake Hatch! This weekend camping and floating for the Salmon Fly Hatch!
Playing a lot of golf.
Unemployment in the summer might not be too bad :p
Won't have to move into our crappy new office

Rants
Getting Laid off will really hurt my play and R budgets.
Negotiating my severance with my boss will be a PITA
Job Prospects for career advancement may be limited here in my mountain resort paradise...
GF extended her trip in Peru until the June 25th.

Drinking
Coffee right now, beer and whisky in camp and on the river later :thumbup:

what field are you in? you seem awfully upbeat about getting laid off! :) hehe

btw, i used to flyfish when I was a kid and now i want to get back to it for some trout and salmon freshwater (little river) fishing. Can you recomend a good setup for up to say $200? I looked at Orvis and their basic starter setups may be ok, but perhaps there's something less expensive with a better quality?

Thanks!
