On a future note I think it would.be a good idea to post the info at least 2 weeks prior so people have plenty of time to arrange time off to make it if need be. Especially since this one is not on the 2nd Saturday of the month like it was suppose to be as Daniel pointed out.

And Justin, if you and Ray decide on time, location etc. then I think it should be ok for you to go ahead and post up the info. I know Ray has alot going on with his job and may not be able to post the info up as readily in a timely manner. Just my opinion.

I would have taken them a little sooner than 2, but then again you shouldn't have to take those. Maybe you should get a sleep study done

Na, I wouldn't do that at all


In all seriousness though you should get one done. If you can go through my hospital or ask that I do you study, I need the work

try to read a book... in bed, for me it works true wonders, i can be fully awake, full of energy, and when I take a book in my hand and just think that i;m about to start reading it, and there's no pictures in it, it makes me yawn and my eyes feel so heavy.. next thing i know i wake up in the morning with a closed book still in my hand

I haven't been following along on the thread, I just saw where we posted something about his wheels.

Get some Penetrating Oil (WD-40 or PB Blaster) I highly reccommend PB Blaster. Spray it directly on the nut and let it sit for 10 minutes then spray some more then let it sit for about 20 minutes. Spray a little more and take a LONG breaker bar with the Extractor Socket and start wrenching very slowly. You need to ensure that the extractor socket is all the way down on nut and stays that way and that the breaker bar is horizontal , so by the looks of it, you will need an extension. Those bolts look a little long, so you might have to cut off or grind down the bolt because extractor sockets tend to be short and the bolt will go right though and you won't be able to get the breaker bar on it securely.

I am a Certified Machinist. I have done lots of bolt and nut extractions, most in incredibly difficult locations.
