I see your problem.

You should have visited in August, where within 1/8th mile you'd be soaked in sweat AND unconscious.


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.
