Just hit my 4 year anniversary in February and I have to redo the whole hiring process from the written all the way to the interview.

I meant how much time do you have to get ready for the physical agility test and what do you have to do to pass the test.

If you have never been stung in the ear by a yellow jacket… you are one lucky SOB.  Probably the absolute worst ear pain/headache I’ve ever had in my life.

 

Welcome home to Michigan… 🤦🏼‍♂️

I've never been stung in the ear by a yellow jacket, and that's gotta hurt. But I was stung in the foot and ended up in the ER. Now I carry an Epipen and I keep three in my golf bag.

Yeah I am taking a break from a certain thread and a certain guy---- And I am thinking of putting him on ignore again and if those in power do not do something on him I may be off here permantally. I have never had any trouble from any member on here and do not need someone being sarcastic or trying to argue on everything I post

Ignore list has grown by 2. One should have been done a couple years ago and the other was just time.

Theres another 1-2 that are close to getting added

There is always more to learn; no one knows everything.  

Absolutely--- I learn something on here or WRX everytime I fire up this infernal machine. I also learn a lot by applying theory to practical things. ometimes success sometimes failure. I have a staff bag full of failed wedge grinds and another one full of club shaft combos

Worst I ever got stung was by a yellow jacket that got between my motorcycle helmet and my head while riding up the road at 70 MPH. In those days in NC you had to wear a helmet on a motorcycle but no specs. I ran an old Easy Rider Captain America helmet with no liner with just the top foam pad in it and I had long hair then too. That SOB stung me about 5 times before I stopped and got him out or rather squashed him in my hair. Man my head hurt for 2 days but I never swole up or had any allergic effects

Have a month until the first attempt but until October to pass it. It’s called CPAT it’s a whole test that’s standard for firefighters 

They had just started it for volunteers just before I quit to come down here to live. In SC you had the fire Academy involved ($$$$$) plus OSHA and ISO. I was in good physical shape then and passed it at 42 yoa. My Chief at 48 yoa passed it too. LOL we used to work circles around the younger guys on a working structural fire. Man I have went to crap in the last 22 years not just from breaking my back either. Back in those days I was in good shape because I drove race cars and working on big diesel trucks plus running a lot of fire calls. When i moved down here I got lazy and out of shape

Oh I passed it before the stair stepper is what gets people to fail. I’ll pass it again just doing what I can to make my career last as long as possible

It's a process for sure!  I started when I was 44; never hit a golf ball before.  Watched golf on TV and thought "That looks easy." 😂   Now at 75 I wish that I had started playing when I was in school; it was so difficult to learn back then since we only had one golf course and it was private.  

 

And some of the things I've learned, turned out to be flat out wrong.  They might be OK for some people, but they weren't for me, so had to start over.  

We have similar paths to golf.  I started in my late 40’s also mainly due to work.  Now at 75 it’s part of my life but in a recreational way.

I was stung by a yellow jacket in the neck about 15 years ago (60yrs).  We were walking, bag carrying and I was in a bit of trouble with a allergic reaction.  One of the guys had Benadryl and something else (?).  Took the Benadryl and it took some time but it turned out Ok. Sure am glad my my buddy had the Benadryl.

In general I'm  not allergic to bee or wasp stings. That was untill I moved to TN. They have what is called a paper wasp which I found out the hard way that I am very allergic to their sting. I got stung in the left hand and thought nothing about it until the next morning. My left hand was the size of a baseball mit and my right hand was normal. It felt like the skin was going to split wide open. Couldn't bend anything. Went to the doctors and got shots, pills, and some cream. Now if I get stung I treat it like a snake bite. Suck out the poison with a suction device and take a benadryl.

And in any video I take on the golf course you will here me sniffle. For someone who loves to golf, I have a grass allergy. Not bad but enough for the sniffles. So apologies for the sniffles.

When my wife and I moved to our current house, about 8 years ago, I was cleaning up in the yard and suddenly something *HIT* my arm .. like YEEOWWWCH!!!!

Didn't see any bees, wasps, anything and the next day yep my arm swelled to twice its size... Nearest I or anyone could guess it was probably a Brown Recluse - two small puncture marks close to each other. Nasty!
