    Lol Justin, well played. Most guys i know have 40 plus ones, and they told me "some things are not better when they're bigger, but some things are:/: If it was just me and/or my wife 32 would be about perfect. But we are planning on bringing 2 kids a dog and a cat. So yeah, having another bedroom would be pretty handy. Remember this will be my home, I'll spend more time living in this than i do in my actual house (if i stay working:lol:). Rajan, are you sure he was a pipeliner? The compressor and crane combined with a 550 makes me think he's a mechanic, because all of that is unneeded welding pipe, and is actually against the contracts too. Pipeliners run more or less a machine, torches, propane for preheat, and a box for tools, and pretty much nothing more. For shhhhs and giggles, check these out... i better not let the wife see these!!! This would be worth it if i planned on doing this my whole career, if i started earlier in life i probably would have bought one instead of a house. http://www.drvsuites.com/elite-suites-luxury-fifth-wheels/photos.html

    Just pulled into the hotel for the week, nice 5 hour drive one way, went home after work on Saturday. We might be getting a camper sooner than i anticipated, family friend selling a 32' 5th wheel, will be tight quarters but doable and the price is right. Just got a new box for the rig last week, the tractor supply truck toolbox would have been better in beer can form. So now i think I'm gonna have to chop this one down to get the clearance for the camper:cry::cry::whine::whine::whine::whine: Here's the new box in a messy ass truckbed.

    That may be true B, but that is not my reality at all. In the working conditions that i experience at times, your body is literally doing all it can to drop temperature, and it can't because of the humidity, temperature and ppe required for the job. What happens is that you sweat, your body temperature doesn't drop, so your body freaks out and ups the sweating attempting to frantically cool itself. It purges salts in an attempt to increase surface area, to the point where everything you have is stained white in a day. You use on average 3 pairs of gloves so they can dry and you don't get electric shock, drying them on hooks in front of the radiator of the welding machine. It's easy to say stop and cool down for a bit, but you have to keep up or you're gone, and usually if you start a tie in you work til you are done. If you are by blowing gas, add a fr coverall and nomex hood to the equation as well. There have days where i will drink 3 to 4 gallons of water, but still feel like crap because i have sweated out too many salts. Salts also allow your body to retain the water you drink.

    Well, you probably got me on the eating right thing!!! :lol: Honestly tho, the electrolytes help in my experience. I've had a heat injury before i learned that, and will not make the same mistake again. You might have been blessed with a more tolerant physique, I'm not sure. If you go to the er dehydrated, they use a saline solution to hydrate you, so i would think that in extreme weather working long hours, you need to do the same. The cdc and osha agree with you to a point, but when it gets really hot just about all companies in construction actually supply squincher packets to keep the workforce properly hydrated. That costs money, and they wouldn't do that unless it was deemed medically prudent. Electrolytes, it's what plants crave! :lol: https://youtu.be/GFD2ggNxR1g

    Tell me that after wearing bibs, a welding coat, hat, hood, and gloves all day hugging a pipe hot enough to fry an egg in a minute in direct sunlight 115 heat index and humidity so high the sweat just soaks through and won't evaporate. 3 gallons of water a day and not piss once. You will actually drop if you don't get salts in you.

    Yeah i get the mix packets of it, you can definitely tell the difference. I also use a very low sodium salt named "life salt". Mix that in some water and it really helps. Carry a thing of it in the truck.

    Some project managers understand work, and so are way more lenient because they've actually watched that movie once or twice... not to mention I'm sure if he offers a case of beer to some coworkers the leach field will be better than new. Cool tree Sean, keep em coming!

    If you feel that chemo is making your standard of living not worth living, and the likelihood of beating it is small enough that the juice isn't worth the squeeze, then stop that shit and live life to the fullest for as long as possible. That's a decision you can make whenever boss, and no one will blame you at all on that, that's your right. That's a decision we all will face one day if we are lucky, it just really sucks that it's your time to decide on that now. Anyone can die tomorrow, all we can do is live the best life we can. The chemo might be able to slow it down, and that's a consideration, but if you truly feel that going without would be better it might be time to talk with your doctor. Also some counseling to help understand your feelings and thoughts about everything would probably help too, if you aren't already talking to someone I would be amazed because that should definitely be part of the treatment program. Think of it as an old experienced bartender, a bit of talking about something can really help put things in perspective.

    I didn't know, that's still really young, i was thinking 18 or so.:? There was a time in life when you can look at someone and tell how old they are, at some point that ability disappears.... that's where I'm at.
