    Looks like I\'m out of the Blazer Business for awhile

    My boss called my into the office and told me if I could get my second degree in CS, they would promote me into a new position that they are creating. It would be over the entire Telecom and part of the network group at my company. We're talking big bucks here. The clicher is that I need to get that degree by the end of the year. I need about 60 credits to do that. It is possible through www.accis.com which is where I've been taking credits here and there. The only way to do it as I see is to drop all else to get it done. Now there is a series of mud races coming up, anither Blazer Bash and who knows. I dont think I have the time but I know myself and I'll do it anyway. So the Blazer is going into storage next week. Out of site out of mind. It sucks, but hopefully next year, I'll have more cash to get back into it.

    This came at the same time that our next baby is about two weeks out so it might be for the best anyway.

    Bummer, I'm going to miss out on some good wheeling this summer!

    yeah, long term you'll win. I'm sure once you get the program rolling, you'll find some free time to "blaze"

    YOu see... this puts you between a rock and a hard place. The only way to solve this is to give me your blazer instead of spending all that money on storage. And I'll give it back to you in a year.... maybe /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
    Goodluck!

    well that sucks but in a good way /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif just look at it this way you have many years to 4x4 but not many chances come along to advance or make more money so why not do it /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Believe me, it will be well worth it in the long run.
    The time will go be fast and you will have lots of fun with it when the schooling is all said and done and your in the new position. Heck, just think, with the promotion and pay raise you can go mud-whomping in a 3 piece suit and tie /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Im sure there are a few of us who could volenteer to come over and beat the sh!t out of your truck until your ready to come back /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Good Luck!
