I hope I’m not the only one who read this in the dramatic futurama voice

Placed an order for a full suspension bike that is supposedly in stock. Hopefully they'll cancel my pre-order the hard tail bike.

Going to the Eagles game. 8 of us crammed into the back of one of our boxes.

I have two part time ambulance jobs. One is with AMR, the other with a mountain/rural service. AMR pays me a lot (36/hr minimum) and lets me build my own shifts so long as I work one day per month. It's busy urban EMS and we work pretty hard and have to put up with a pretty dumb ALS FD with scene control. The mountain job is 24s (too far to drive for anything less) and pays only 20/hr. But I get to do cool stuff (RSI, vents, lots of meds, backcountry, etc) with lots of my friends.

By 2022 I feel I need to only have one. It stresses me out to have this much obligation. But how am I going to pick?
Sounds like my gig, but I don't make $36/hr. lol More like $25/hr. But hours 1-8 are normal time, 8-12 are overtime, anything above 12 hours Is double time. If we catch a late call, it's easy to hit that double-time rate.

How to pick? THat's the hard part. Which one do you feel happier going to? Which one sparks joy? :)

We went camping recently, and it was so much fun. Felt good to get out of the wildfires for a little while too. These days, we've been trying to stay offline and get outside whenever possible. Camping, biking, hiking, walking, whatever gets us out the front door and into nature. I love it.

Yay! New bike was in stock and should be shipping soon. Order for old bike canceled.

Cannot wait. Also ordered a trailer hitch for my Honda and a new bike rack.

Hope my wife doesn't ask what I paid for all of this.

Going to tow the Honda with the bike?
Funny cause for whatever reason the rack manufacturer suggest a class 2 or higher hitch, despite being convertible between 1 1/4" and 2".


What the hell am I gonna tow with a 4 banger Honda that I need a class 2 hitch.

Apparently bicycles.

What’s going on with AMR San Diego?
Is everyone getting laid off? They ran fine before the city contract so I I’d be surprised if that was true.
Is Falck taking people?

I just saw an article that said Falck was having trouble hiring staff and obtaining vehicles. But, isn’t everyon?
