Hi

It's been awhile just thought I would pop in and say hi, so HI!!!!!

I have been working for over 25 days straight, I lost real count at about day 19 or so. Been putting in 10 to 16 hours a day depending on how much I worked the day before... Still got about 40 something days to go in the refueling outage. I am really f'in tired but hella rich from all the overtime pay.

When will you be back here more? Or is this permanent? It's not quite the same around here without your contributions....

I will be back more when the outage is over. I am always on the move at work and only at my desk for about 5 mins a day now and usually too tired to post after work. I got off early today though, I needed some rest.

As for my investment, I already have a gixxer 1k shock but my next mod will probably be much larger than shocks for the SV. I was thinking a full replacement upgrade. Still not sure what though, I am not fully committed to the monster yet. R6, Gixxer 750 and the 600rr are always the usual suspects. The 675 might come into play as well. I will just have to see what's out there next season. Of course I may go another route all together and outfit someone else in my life with an upgrade nonmotorcycle related.

Here is a site that will show you what we are doing. If you look at the pic of Sequoyah 1, the big red crane that is pulling out the yellow steam generator is exactly what we are doing. It is highly radioactive and we are putting it in a huge tomb. Sequoyah is our sister plant, it looks almost exactly like my plant.

Clutch.

Good to hear from you Vol. Keep the SV and buy something else to keep it company since you're rich.

yeah, that sounds like our normal outages. This one is different because of the SG replacement. Instead of the usual 25 to 30 days, it's 68 to 75 days long.
