    haha. i guess it sounds more glamorous on paper. the travel lifestyle certainly has some perks, but it has its stressful moments too.

    simply getting to sleep in your own bed when you come back home actually becomes a small pleasure you start looking forward to :eek:

    btw, pisses me off right now... just found out yesterday one of the people I knew in the mountain biking circle died early this week. he was part of the group that kinda adopted me when I was just starting, and was always a swell guy every time we regularly bump into each other out in the trails. anyway, he had to stop a year or so back when he found out he had tumor growing, and I remember asking a mutual friend last december how he was doing and he told me the guy's doing great and he heard he finished his chemo and he's been given a clean bill of health... apparently the cancer spread or whatever and he succumbed to cardiac arrest in the hospital where he was confined in icu. guy was just 37 years old.

    well, got a taste of my own mortality yesterday. Dad fell while working on the ranch and wound up in the ER. He's okay, was cracking jokes in the ambulance as they took him in, but still. He ain't as young as he once was, and that reminds me that I'm not as young as I once was. Also kinda reminds me that - even if I decide to see the glass as half-full...it's really less-than-half these days.

    Top that distressing news with the push-back I got from the wife when I called her and tried to weigh heading to the hospital (four hours away) versus staying put, and when she played that card (Well you know you have a family here as well! OJFC), I hung up on her and didn't pick up any of her next 6 or so calls. Turned out that she ran out of gas on the way home and I didn't know until I saw her walking up the street to the driveway. An hour later I had both cars back in the driveway. What a fucking evening.

    My dad's supposed to be released from the hospital today. But, given our family history I have a good guess how he's going to die, and me as well. (well, assuming no rapture or end-of-the-world scenarios). I thought I had made peace with that, but yesterday certainly proved otherwise.

    This belongs in the "Things I do not get" thread. How, in a major metropolitan area with plenty of easy access to gas, do you let yourself run on empty?

    Sorry to hear this, Thomas. Hope dad recovers quickly, and that your wife forgives you for not picking up the phone when she ran out of gas.

    By the way, I, too, was wondering how she ran out of gas. Is the gauge broken?

    She procrastinates and gambles all the time on the gas-gauge lottery. I mean, the damn thing has a bright orange light that comes on at 1/8 of a tank. And still.

    Oh, this was rich - she pulled to the side of the road so the car was tilted, and it took two trips with the gas can to get enough in the tank to get it running.


    Thanks. I still haven't forgiven her for pushing back on the earlier conversation, because I know that were it her parents, she would have dropped everything and left me hanging with the kids.

    Fang, hope your buddy retains his sight.

    This sort of thing worries me because when I travel I love to go on long walks by myself, it's a great way for me to unwind. Usually it's after dinner meetings which means it's after 10 p.m. or so, and I tend not to always be cognizant of my surroundings. I need to be more careful.
