Well I made it 2 years… was holding out on buying $35,000 worth of rocks.  Last nights storm took 4’ of my yard.  Thank you wonderful neighbors for making my property erode faster than it would have if you’d have just left it alone… 😡

Pretty much won’t be able to do anything now besides look at some stupid rocks.

Home ownership sucks.

... I hear ya. The day before I moved in to my first home (new construction) I played golf with a guy in his late 40's. He congratulated me on my new home and said I should go in the backyard, dig a deep hole and start throwing money in it because that is what is like to own your one home. I thought it was a pretty crappy comment to damper my excitement but not inaccurate. 😳

Need to do a little work vent... So as most you know I work as an Ice Technician for Curling Clubs/Events. I've been assigned to go to Kazakhstan in November for 2 weeks to do an event there. It is a long flight (even from Switzerland) and the visa process is tedious at best. However that is all well fine and good. 

I have been to this same venue and city before back in 2017 for another event. People are nice, food is good, but still a very different world from what most of us are use to. Which leads me to my vent/rant. Last event we had ALL brand new equipment for our ice making needs. This equipment was taken and as we were told put into storage... apparently this wasn't the case. We had a call the other day and they want all new equipment again... however we are a month out and ordering, shipping and customs it is likely impossible to get it into the country on time. On the call we were told to forget about the 2017 kit and will likely have to source a lot locally (not easy to do) or bring a lot in bags what we can. The sad part is this is not entirely unexpected and teams here are trying to qualify for worlds and olympics which is very important so a lot of pressure on making stellar conditions. 

In the end we will get the job done, but the stress is already mounting and there is little spoken english there(thankfully my deputy is Russian), but it will be an adventure however with a little extra care a lot of this could have all been avoided and managed a lot easier. 

Before anyone asks there was no way I thought I'd be going back there either... but again the food was good!

Keep in mind Kaz has only been independent for the last 25 or so years so there is still corruption and well shady stuff. As I've been told much of it from the previous event is broken, stolen, lost or who else knows. I mean I had to use a garbage bin and sub pump to mix and spray the paint last time haha

I'm hoping to have a call and catalogue what is there and bring everything I can, but who knows. I will have 6 days (5 after TV takes a day for setup) from when I arrive to take it from a hockey arena to full curling arena with all the dressing and good stuff! It will be enough time, but bound to loose a day or two to stuff not being there, needing to build something or who knows what else.

I should say although this is a rant/vent these experiences are incredibly unique and provide funny stories, new friends and travel to incredible places. However in a normal event I'll do 12-14 days at 12-14 hours a day and this will be closer to 14 days at 16-20 hour days... just needing to mentally prepare for it and appreciate all those listening to me vent away.

Good luck. Was there a reason why you couldn’t have brought the tools back with you before? Was it because they bought it and therefore “kept it on site” in Kazakhstan

Not really a problem, but a frustrating morning today. Last night I received a request from our automation manager in Florida if I could be at a client site this morning to act as a second set of eyes and oversee the operation of a piece of equipment that has been giving the client some trouble recently. This kind of thing is normal in my job so no big deal. I have some reports to work on but not terribly busy. I arrive at the client site early because of the time difference I can be in touch with Florida if there are issues.

Turns out, the client site is not even running the equipment at the moment due to an issue with a piece of equipment on their side that is needed to supply it. Would have been nice if they had communicated to me that the issue was going to prevent them from using the equipment and given me at least an estimate when my equipment was going to be up and running so I could do something useful with my time.

The box for equipment for the event is 10 by 6 by 4 (feet) and that didn't include the painting equipment, scraping machines and blades so it is quite a lot and probably 50k US worth of gear.  Just too much, normally places rent equipment from us (world curling federation) but they wanted to buy it. Apparently the stones are okay though! Because that's another 80k of "equipment" haha
