When I think I am overloading the trunk carting around rock or lumber I just remind myself that itís probably still less weight than two geotechnical engineers!

BTW, LoveBunny is right about New Orleans. I believe all of our guys detailed there comeback heavier and most werenít lean to start with!

I think we've probably got about the highest obesity rate in the country. I've even heard people who went to Weight Watchers meetings here say they attended meetings in other states and were like, "Where are all the fat people?"
