In order to maintain PERSEC, I did not disclose the exact dates of my great western odyssey, but I am mow back at resistance headquarters from The Free States of America. B.W., your after action report on the roller coasters at Cedar Point is forthcoming. While I have LOTS to write about our trip and experiences, I will make one quick announcement here. We planned on leaving Saturday August 20th by 0700 after a quick breakfast. We did....but on Thursday the 18th at 1400 my dickhead former employer (who decided that it was the best time to) let me go. That's right, less than 48 hours before departure. FUCK `EM......it's their loss! Initially, we thought of cancelling vacation, but since we saved up to go, prepaid reservations, and they paid me for my vacation time....we went! I waited until today to begin to make plans and take steps for our departure. That's right, we now have NO EXCUSE to stay in this God forsaken hell hole of the PSRK, and I can't wait to see the "Welcome to the PSRK" sign in my rearview mirror for the last time. Don't fret though, I will still write about the PSRK with insight from those I leave behind.
