It wasn't as awesome as it could have been, but it sure could have gone shitty quick. Some of us from the Knoxville area have a New Year's tradition of riding (mainly GoldWings) to Dupont Lodge at Cumberland Falls State Park for lunch. Today was forecast high in the low 20s, but no precipitation was mentioned. We all have heated gear, so Charlie and I met at 9:30 for the ~80 mile ride from our meeting point. We took 2-lane backroads as they are more "interesting". About 40 miles in it was getting bad as there was a constant light snow shower that blew around on the roads, and I was eventually searching out tire tracks until we reached another interstate crossing in Jellico, TN. We got on the slab to our exit for the park road, where it was obvious (spinning and fishtailing is NO FUN on a 900 pound bike!) that we'd have to turn back. All in all, I had good ride with my friend, and got to see my temperature display "- -", which is Honda's way of saying "you fool! It's below 14 F!". And also learned new disrespect for the weather guessers as they didn't even mention any snow on the morning news. But we both got home safe, which is pretty awesome considering the possibilities.

Wife and I decided to try and knock an item off the bucket list, so we are in Titusville, Florida. Toured the Kennedy Space Center (three days worth), and hope to  see a Falcon 9 go up on Tuesday. Won't stick around for Falcon Heavy (it's getting nuts around here already for that). Did get to see Falcon Heavy do its Static Hot Fire Test this week: (that was pretty awesome)

My awesome news is that I had my radiation and it didn't jack me up. I'll take it! My nurse had two full sleeves, so the universe picked out the perfect person to take care of me. 

This is great, GN! Now, I'll just pray that the rad does its job.

Don't know if this is awesome or shitty. My last employer called last week and wants me back as a part-time consultant test engineer for about three months. Good money, but I've been having a ball in retirement working on an old motorcycle project. It will only be 20 or so hours a week, so the summer won't be shot, and I enjoyed the project they were working on. To keep this tattoo related, I stopped by to visit my artist yesterday and congratulate her on her recent engagement. Did a double-duty trip because the next block was where I had my drug screening for the temp agency.

    • It will be a better tattoo if you do two or three sessions.
    • Thanks for the sage advice! My artist is the one who suggested one sitting. According to him, after subtracting prep and break time my actual under the needle time should be roughly 5.5-6.5 hours. My primary motivation for getting it done in one sitting is my desire to use holidays for healing time. My next window would be late May and I really don't want a half done job for that long! Great advice on the choice of foods, and I especially appreciate the tip on ibuprofin as it's my go-to pain killer. My wife is driving me to and from as we live way out in the country about 45-60 minutes depending on winter roads. My artist told me flat out there was no way he'd let me out the door if I had to make the drive myself.
    • I got a 14 hour 1/2 sleeve on my upper arm in 3 sessions, a month between each.  The timing was my artist's choice, not mine and I'm glad.  4 hours at at time was enough for me.  Not entirely the pain involved, sitting/laying for long periods, being tensed, etc.  I just find it to be more enjoyable to do shorter sittings, I have nothing to prove.  Also, some tattooers have a heavier hand than others. Couple things that I'd add to Dan's list.  No ibuprofen, aspirin or other blood thinners before (of course unless it's something very necessary and then I'd run it by you doc and/or let your artist know.)  If you're traveling very far right after, I'd suggest stopping for a quick meal.  Even with a snack during the tattoo I felt much better refueling before the drive home. Best of luck and let us see how it turns out.
