    I hauled in 10K of dirt this weekend... coulda had it done.. did it myself instead.. had to wheelbarrow it too... but flat, so no hill.... 3 days of yardwork... woulda been done, but the wife had a problem with her car, had to attend to that...

    good job on the inversion table... always thought they were cool...

    I cashed in some airline miles and some hotel points. I bought a great promotional stay and added a few days. I bought inter island plane tickets. My wife and I will be off to Hawaii. Two islands. Two weeks. Not really guitar related unless I find something I can’t walk away from. What’s disposable income if you can’t dispose of it?

    If you think you got bad roads, try running the 405 from the split to Long Beach California in a cab over diesel truck. The step ups in the twisted highways can get an 80,000 lb semi air born at anything over 40 mph, but you gotta drive 70 to stay up! For a while I'm pretty sure NASA was considering a moon launch using a pressurized corn binder cab over with a hopped up cat engine to launch from the 405, they just needed to get a good run at it.

    I knew a guy who had one of those things, he used to like to show off, and get all rigged up in it, and turn upside down and carry on a conversation with you when you over at his house. I don't think he ever did get to where he could drink his beer that way though. His looked kind of like a Ferris Wheel for midgets or something.

    I have one and have had them for many years. I love them. I use it every morning and additionally if my back is out of sorts.

    Cool!

    I'd open the top window a hair down, hang half way out of that, and then find something guitar related to buy.


    But, I have the GAS pretty bad.

    I have a friend (no, really) who swears by his inversion table.
    He’s a very healthy type, he runs, eats right, and has very few obvious bad habits.
    I tried the table once.
    I sounded like a bowl of Rice Chrispies, snap, crackle, pop.
    Thanks for listening.

    I've suffered from bad back pain since February 1995. I had a restaurant and one day bent over to grab a saucepan from under the kitchen bench. My back "cracked" and I stayed that way bent over and in horrible pain. Went to the medic and he said perhaps laying flat on my back on the floor for 12 weeks or so might help. (Don't go to him any more!)
    Struggled into a chiropractor using a 3 iron and a wedge as walking sticks a few days later and he ran his thumbs up my spine and told me to take a big breath "because this is going to hurt!" He was correct but I got up and walked without the clubs.
    Have since had x-rays and MRI's etc and I have spurs growing inside my spine which compromises my nerve system and gives painful shocks like being electrocuted especially in my left leg and foot.

    Consulted with an Orthopedic surgeon who was keen to have a go at surgery, but warned me I could "come out on wheels" so now I welcome the pain every morning I get out of bed and walk to the kitchen to make my coffee!

    Hope you get good results Mike!

    Hey Mike
    Where did you get it and what kind did you get. Been thinking about one for my wife (she has MS and back pain) and now myself (since I have a neuropothy like condition caused by arthritis in my back)
    Saw so many different ones and prices at one store I got confused.
    Of course there is that one on the infomercial.

    Please share

    Practice guitar during your inversion sessions ... Nothing like killing two birds with one stone ...

    You're fine as long as your wife asks you if you're getting taller.

    If she asks you if the machine is making you longer, you might have to buy something else.

    I missed a $700-$800 one on CL that someone was offering for $300. Forget the brand but it was highly regarded and well-built. So I went with an Ironman 4000 for a couple hundred bucks new. You can order them anywhere. No vibration or heat which is ridiculous anyways since 10 minutes would be a long time on a table.

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately the "C" word is forbidden in my house since one of my wife's best friends had a chiropractic-induced stroke (look it up - all too common) a couple years back - after her first session !

    There's a load of folks who deny that it happens, including my sister who swears by her chiropractor, but it does - and often enough to make me steer clear.

    And you're right - most actual doctors (DO's and MD's) agree on the 1/3 rule regarding back surgery : 1/3 of patients get better, 1/3 stay the same, and 1/3 get worse.

    That's why I bought my Princeton Reverb and traded away my Peavey Delta Blues. Those 11 fewer pounds make a big difference.

    In some countries, a Twin Reverb with JBL's a unit of weight measurement. "We loaded 500 metric Twin loads of gear into that semi today!"
