ok, so we are building a new plant in Oregon, so we have to have 3 new pressure vessels built and we have them Built in Italy.

Well, the first one is just about done.  So someone has to inspect it, so why not the guy that's going to oversee the installation it. 

/

so why not make a vacation out of it, one day of work and 7 days of Vacation/education for my son Mikey.

 

we started in London so we got a Uber and when and saw the sited and well I'm not much of a tourist Like to think of my self as a traveler and this whole trip kind of proved it to me. 

Mama said we are (meaning Mikey and me) hands and feet where awful. so get in the car... but honey........... get in the F$#@!ing car..... yes dear.

I'll break this up into a few posts 


it is my intent to do what is best for TOF, my bed side manners suck and for that I am sorry.
I am blunt and to the point and I do not have the ability to sugar coat it to save your fillings, So really if I tell you stop pissing on the carpet, just knock it off, man up and don't puff up carry on like soap opera. the rules here are really light so man up.

Some have asked way do you put up with all the crap some put me through. and this is it
I am tired of big business just taking form us outdoorsmen. most of the product is defective and does not work as stated. bottom line if there product sucks I want ever outdoorsmen to know about.

All I ask is support those that support you, this place is about real unpaid information, its real outdoorsmen not paid to say something outdoorsmen.........

I've spent a lot of time there Mike, although it's been many years ago. I Really like the country except for Naples, armpit of the world. Make the best of it. I bet Mikey is hating it, RIGHT.

it took a little over 2 hours to make it down, had to go a lot slower than we normally run because of the rain made it slippery

Don't know if you'll  have time to check out Pompeii, but if you do I wouldn't miss it! You being in the trades and all will be able to appreciate the magnitude of the ruins. Truly a must see in my opinion.


A toast, to Dr. Frank C. Hibben, Wherever you are out there in the ethers, Happy hunting. Happy hunting.

the farthest I made it was from Milan to Rome, the Ruins that I saw was my favorite thing of the trip, although I really did love the downhill mountain bike ride
