No fault of mine, I just call them as the code requires me too. Welder can be a fault, supervision, management ..... depends on circumstances. Regardless of fault, enough Bad welds and it starts costing money and time, which makes client take notice, which can cause problems for the contractor at fault.

See I worked the client side of this business for a time and became very good at ripping contractors apart.

Sounds as if you've heard it ..... besides, it's sled season, pussy's over-rated anyway.

No Cuzz, no words of wisdom today. Too aggravated at occurrences here. Time for me to go home. I realized that this past weekend spending a very nice, quiet few days with the wifey in our home, not away in an RV. Sometimes the money's not worth it, it's getting to be one of those times quickly with this company.

I honestly don't know how you can work away from your family like you do Vert. I couldn't do it.

Vert, I understand you are not going to be able to ride with us this weekend. I was looking forward to meeting you. Hope the work situation improves. I do not plan any other trips west this year so hopefully we can meet up next season sometime.

Cuzz, drag him with to the Snowies ........ lol.

Wait ...... he rides a Nytro though doesn't he ....... without a turbo, 1 trip a year may be all he can handle.

Andy I hate it, but as I told Cuzz, I'm not where I want to be to be able to pack up and leave yet.

I have a funny feeling he'll end up going out west again. Maybe I'll bribe him with my M8 to ride for the trip to see how he likes it.

You guys just BE SAFE and have fun.

Might try the beacon exercise I mentioned in another thread. Might look lame doing it if other riders see you, but fuckem, better to know how things work than about how it looks.

Nothing wrong with the Nytro. I could always bring my sons M7 if it was an issue. I have a vacation planned with the family in April so I am not sure about another trip west but I said that last year also.

I have thick skin. I knew you were joking. The Nytro handles fine as long as you don't stop, lol. It is a little heavy when stuck but it handles fine. Keith asked me what sled I would keep if I had to choose between the M and the Nytro and I told him the M. We will see what I think after this season. Only have two trips on it so far.

That is a MTX isn't it? Yeah I'd keep it over an M. That motor will be running strong long after the M lays down and dies.
