    How awkward for the ambulance driver: To have a patient in the back screaming in pain, hopped up on pain killers and shouting at him to slow down on the straight-aways, don't slow down on the turns, coast down the hills, and lay off the accelerator on the hills. What's the pressure in those tires? Do you really need all this heavy equipment all the time? What are you getting with this thing: 15MPG?

    Best wishes, Wayne. I'll go to the MHG meeting in your stead and act intelligent for you.

    Hi All:

    ___Thank you again for all the kind words …

    ___I setup a soft recliner next to my workstation with ice packs as lumbar support so I will try and play some catch up today …

    ___The Steroids are helping but the Valium is really a knock out drug if I do say so myself. I was telling Terry I have been trying to watch DVD’s and remember maybe 15 – 20 minutes of them and fall asleep. It took over 7.5 hours to watch “The Day After Tomorrow” yesterday :(

    ___Tony, although Terry all but forbid me to go to Milwaukee this weekend, I jut might make decide to go if the pain is subsiding. I will call you Friday night. Tom will want to come along as he has little in the way of Prius II driving experience under his belt.

    ___Let us just see how posting goes today …

    ___Good Luck and thank you all.

    You are a bad boy wayne! Stop posting. If I found out you read this message I am going to come over and strap you to your bed.

    BTW, note to everyone. My internet is down at home and I have no internet at the place I am training at this week.

    I am on a "borrowed" wifi connnection, with my laptop on its side because its the only way I can get a signal as I type this.

    hopefly tomorrow the tech will come and fix it.

    philmcneal Has it been 10 years? Wow

    tom if you really wanted wayne to sleep and get some rest you'd temporarly close this thread :p

    i had the impression wayne had just a couple of days to battle from the pain, but wow looking at the drugs you took this is one serious recovery! so ya sleep dude and slave your son into helping you get back your hypermiler groove when it is time!

    when wayne gets well i'll ask more about his recovery. good luck!

    (((((Wayne))))) Feel better, man! I just popped in to tell you that my friend heard you on Rachel Maddow's show this morning -- I'm assuming that was taped, now that I see that you're indisposed. Thanks for mentioning that little gathering in Madison. :)

    Hi Linda:

    ___After the steroids, the Valium, Celebrex, Vicodin, the Hydroceatgfjrri’hg (whatever it is called), ice packs, making chairs out of more pillows then the reclining chair itself, and enough sleep to last me about 3 months, I am starting get around a bit better compared to the last 4 days ago when I couldn’t even stand up. Still taking it easy and sleeping a lot but the web site needed work and I am just getting back into the swing of things …

    ___With that, I am glad I had the chance to mention Hybridfest in the short time allotted. If I could have had another 1/2 hour, we could have done a lot more wrt HF2007 if you know what I mean ;)

    ___Good Luck and thank you for the well wishes.
