It's kinda of funny how little things can mean so much. Ride safe Mark, and if you come this way Porkbutt and I will do our best to make you want to come back.
Finish Strong!

And I'll ad my own slogan, Keep a clear eye on the horizon.

T-minus two days and counting or should that be T-minus 48 hours to launch; I'm confused...

Jumping the gun a bit!

Yesterday was my last day. Started like any other day.......

But after lunch the CEO comes on the PA to announce my departure and cake in the conference room. Was not expecting that thought I would just walk out quietly at the end of my day. (and I forgot to take a photo of the cake PowerMax is a great company with great people. They have become like another family to me. I will miss them

But got my final paperwork and an amazing Card from my co workers. I am very touched by their supportive and kind words.



My co-workers goodbye card and my final "voluntary termination" check


My boss gave me this artwork..... and how true is this.....



Packed up my personal belongings and called it a day.



awoke at 5am today.... some blue sky after many days of rain...... ready to get packed up so I can start riding tomorrow!

Mark, I can barely handle the second-hand excitement reading this.

HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR BRAIN FROM EXPLODING!
