I Live in Iowa: Week 205

Another week living the dream! But seriously, my life is pretty awesome, and I've lived longer than many of my peers. Weekends like this simply remind me of that. 

Work was good. I skipped a work trip to Germany, so I was the only drivetrain guy in the office. When we had a little drivetrain incident Monday my being in the office helped resolve the incident by Wednesday afternoon and "saving face" so to say. 

Having just finished a production launch every little issue that comes up has to be jumped on because if we don't figure it out quickly it could affect 100 machines instantly. That's always the challenge, we don't know what we don't know. I don't wonder how vechicles seem to have unique flaws any more. We test, we retest, and sometimes test a third time at full machine level, and then we go to production and truth is, there are certainly failures out there we don't know about yet.

One visit to the physical therapist and one to the orthopedic doctor, who wrote an MRI for me. Ugh, I don't even want to think about it now. I honestly think it was a tendon thing and between rest and physical therapy it's healed, or nearly. 

Then this weekend I attempted to climb Mt. Rainier with three of my friends and coworkers from Iowa. That is clearly too much of a story to include in my weekly summary.
