    Positive vibes Craig. Not much worse than being hospitalized.

    Wishing you the best recovery possible.

    Weird stuff, I was in charge of testing the Legionella contamination of water at the hospital during my externship.

    Time between contamination and symptoms can be as short as 2 days so I hope they check the contamination of the air-conditionning/refrigreation circuit of your truck or a warehouse you could have spent time in.

    Well that's a bummer. Any details? I am always curious about why builders who really seemed to have figured it out and done their time learning decide to stop.

    Thanks, Doug

    Thanks Doug, I'm no longer building or painting, but I check in here when I can. When I retired from teaching in 2015 I still needed to generate income. Unfortunately the bicycle industry wasn't generating what i needed for the time invested. I miss the work, but $ rules in the end. I've been trucking as a second career, if anyone is interested, see my youtube channel, here's a link: Battling The Heat And A Walk Around Portage Maverick Yard Craig Ryan 7-21-17 - YouTube Thanks again to this community for all the support over the years.

    Thank you, Craig. You are the second guy I have followed who seemed to do everything right, got rave reviews on the bikes and hung up the torch after a few years because the work wasn't there. The other was the guy doing Coho rando style bikes, Charles Lathe. I wondered then, why the all or nothing? Why not build a bike when a customer comes along rather than completely stop? I can only think of insurance cost, getting rusty with the torch or too much moolah tied up in equipment. Anyway, best wishes and it was a pleasure following your framebuilding efforts.

    Regards, Doug
