    I have not participated much since February (left my wife) because I had to get my shit together.

    Well, I got it together. I retired from the Navy in 1993, and now the Postal Service has seen fit to offer me $15,000 to retire early................

    My last day is October 30th 2009.

    I got rid of my wife, rid of her house, and rid of 95% of my bills.

    I bought an RV Toy Hauler and I am heading down the road.

    My boat has become an anchor on my ass, anyone want to take her over :)

    Anyway, I am retiring and heading down the road. I will be back from time to time, but I am down the road on October 31st for at least a year, maybe longer.

    I have had nothing but a blast since moving back to San Diego in 2000, but it is time for me to spread my wings some. It's been real, and it's been nice, sometimes it's been real nice :)

    Harry, it's been a pleasure to have known you.
    Wish you all the best on your travels. Make some great memories. Be safe and don't sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.

    Good for you Harry!
    Have a blast on the road and when you do swing by SD call me, we'll go out and slay them!
    Keep in touch.
    Will you have internet access while traveling?

    Fair winds and following seas Harry. Sounds like you're about to have a blast. Good luck finding someone to pick up the boat. Hope it goes fast and you get on down the road!

    Thanks for all the rockin partys at the old house Harry. It was all you that kept the BD community together by throwing partys.
    Glad to see a smile on your face. Dump the boat. When you get back to SD you got rides on ours.
    First send over all those rockpile numbers you got :D.

    Hey Harry,
    Seems I see you more now at the post office LOL. Your toy hauler looks nice, looks like mine. Well if you are planing on dumping the boat, like jason said, always welcome on my boat as well.

    I will be on line for sure, just down the road.

    Fishing San Diego has been very much fun the last 9 years, I will certainly be taking you up on the ride offers :)
