Tomorrow is the big day

My company is announcing layoffs. Let's hope I don't make the cut. Worst case, next week will be good riding weather

Nice use of the word "bailiwick".


Best of luck to you Pat.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I honestly am not in all that bad of a position if I were to get canned. I am young, low debt, no mortgage, no kids, no wife. I'm sure i'll bounce back soon enough.

Not planning on selling the bike anytime soon :P

Yeah, but getting laid off sucks. I've been laid off with 2 different companies, and it doesn't get easier. My current company is also doing layoffs, so I'm hoping to avoid this one. Maybe I'm like cancer to a company
