It "used" to be when it was Dean and Buster's Good Morning thread, but then Dean got pissed because everyone was ignoring Buster. Oh well.

Dean got pissed because his thread got taken over by everyone and they weren't talking to him and just talking amongst themselve ignoring him.

Folks dealing with physical limitations have to be tough.. there is not the same degree of comfort....

I agree. My motivation for the first month dwelling in the pickup was that living in S&B was making me soft. Other reasons too, like wanting to live in nature and wanting to be targeted for crime less. 

It was several years later that I found the forum and realized that I could live in an RV in nature all the time.

Too funny, but that is not my low point. I am always happy to get the business taken care of, in my own bucket-bathroom. And I found that the low ceiling of the pickup cab helped me heal my back injury. Every night I climbed over the seats to pop into my bunk. After a month of that I could do those flip-over tests of mobility at the doctor office. Better than 6 months of physical therapy for me. 
I think the low point for me was getting used to being out in the rainey downpours in the PNW. Before dwelling, I thought of extreme weather in a negative way: "bad" weather. Now it's just part of the natural world.

No.  I sure hope he is doing Ok and is out and doesn't have that expensive roomate anymore.

Never heard of a flip-over test at the doctor's office. A part of PT?

I can't personally say that living in the PNW is the low point in western civilization, crifter, but if you say say so, I believe you. I think I would rather live in eastern WA or OR state, than over near the coast. Since 1984, I've only lived in places in the west that get 300 days of sun a year. That's why they call me HDQ, high desert Q.

Appears that the last Dean posted was in January, and still in Missouri.

Yes it's a Physical Therapy test. They test your back by having you lay spread eagle on your back, then flip over without using your arms or legs. You have to be able to flip both right and left. If you can, you pass. If not, back to the pain grind.
I sent Dean a PM. If he comes to the forun, maybe he will say hi to us.

Y'all went on some strange intellectual journeys since I last posted here. I always felt we might need to have a thread for miscellaneous chatting that isn't tied to a time of day.
