Taking a break
« on: October 14, 2016, 12:56:13 PM »
Hey all, sorry for my absence. Been battling the flu for 10 days or so. I am needing to put serious simracing aside for a while due to some worsening health issues. Not sure at this stage whether things will improve or not but at this time I'm having to take huge amounts of painkillers to stay in the seat. Still be hanging around and will jump on for some fun laps when the body permits but serious racing is a bit much right now.
Best to take me out of the league nights and free up a slot.

Sorry to hear that your condition is worsening/not improving... a shame that is also prevents you from having a good distraction from the problem.  We will look forward to seeing you drop in when possible and especially to hear when there is an improvement.

all the best, Bruce.

Thanks Bruce. I actually bought ETS2 the other day to give me something a bit more casual and hey, can't let the old G27 seize up from no use.
I can be thankful that it's nothing life threatening, just all skeletal probs. The saddest part is they take away all life's pleasures...hehehe. Had to stop smoking (not a bad thing) and allowed one beer and worst of all they want me to cut out coffee. Who takes coffee off a simracer?? ;D ::)

I am looking forward to you returning and watching you giving the young guns a run for their money, using your

Sorry to hear, slideways. Best of luck with your recovery and hope to see you back soon. I have no idea how life without coffee might be, but it sounds really bad. You have all my sympathy.
