    "What's the perfect Valentine's Day gift? ❤️ Naming a cockroach after your ex, of course! Message us your ex's name and we'll name a cockroach after them! We'll post names (First and last name initial!) starting February 11 here on Facebook! Watch on Facebook Live or on our website's Meerkat webcam on Valentine's Day at 2:15 pm to see them devour these little bugs!"
    I read that sales were so high the meerkats couldn't have consumed all of the roaches. So the zoo had to add cams for other critters eating the bugs.

    Is it odd that there's a zoo in El Paso? Seems odd.

    In my mid to late 20s I traveled every week (100k+ miles/yr) for a while. I spent a lot of time in the air up front drinking and bullshitting with guys who had been road warriors for decades. Great discussions, but the biggest takeaway was that nearly all of them were on their 3rd (or 4th) wife.

    Makes you wonder how they got the 2..3..4th one if they didn't have time for the first

    Thanks all. Good advice all around. I spent the weekend camping with a close friend in a pretty remote area. He got divorced last year and came out well- awesome new GF, etc .We tripped shrooms while sitting on the side of a canyon while the sun went down and I had some really good introspection throughout the experience and got down to some emotions I'd been suppressing. My pup was with me, cuddled up on me during the peak of the trip guiding me along.

    I'm definitely going to trip again soon- there was some really good stuff along the way, but I didn't go as deep as I wanted.

I am certain after being with my girl for 39 years (Married 35) that was a lucky set of circumstances for my marriage.

    Yeah, I don't know how my married coworkers do it. I dodged traveling this week and was able to hold off on two extra nights of traveling last week, but the expectation is that I pick back up from 50% to 75% travel in the near future. I'm off on yet another international trip next week...

Will return to Nor Cal, probably Sac town, will get a mid week pass to squaw and a new BMW R1200R for summer time. Sell insurance in all corners of Cal, just a matter of wether I bring my Surf board or skis for after the appointments.

    Fuck it.
    You can help me when you get here. Plus, my GF wants to sell insurance, she can help you sell to the Mandarin speaking market. It's huge. Many of her friends are buying Whole life plus LTC.

    Another friend of hers sells insurance here and in China. She markets to China online. Another monster market still developing.

    Been here since 2004 and filmed many segments with TGR but always forget my login and need to create a new one. This thread helped me a while ago and figured maybe I can contribute to others.

    It is very true that once they turn, they go batshit crazy, don't be surprised to get caught up in really nasty shit. It's like a switch flips from love to extreme hate. Like people said File First and Go all in if you go.

    I will also say that it is still very salvageable even if you go off the cliff. My wife and I went as dark side as you can get, really full on stuff, divorce attorneys hired and all. I fixed things a little when I stopped trying to debate instances where she thought I wronged her and came up with the line 'I'm sorry for hurting you in the past, I'm here to support you now". That shit works if you back it up with actions, you kill the argument and look like a good guy who is there for them. I then fully fixed things when I realized that after a couple beers, wife's sound so stupid, its unbelievable. If you quit beer and just smoke weed all day, they sound just fine. Weed saves relationships and saves families, alcohol destroys them, there is no debating that. It's hard to switch over completely to weed for about a month, then its easy. I also went from 195 lb Dad Bod to 175 lb and ripped 6 pack after 3 months with absolutely no additional exercise.

    Feel free to criticize this advice and justify your drinking, I know I would have. I also apologize for preaching but I want to let other middle-aged ski bums to know how profound this small change from beer to weed is and someone will be helped by this. I was born and raised in a ski town and I can tell you the only reason alcohol is such a huge part of the ski culture is to sell ski vacations to people who can't ski.

    Man it's the truth. I still drink but only if there's zero chance I'm gonna be around her, I can't take her when I've been drinking and she sure as hell can't take me. She doesn't care about weed, she probably prefers me when I'm high honestly, so that's what I do and it's a good thing for everybody.

    To each their own, and I'm no puritan, but I'd suggest completely clear heads are probably best for all if you're truly trying to heal a marriage. If you're only trying to survive it - NTTAWWT as it is certainly one approach of many - bake or drink away. However, if you're only trying to survive, it might be time to take a clear [headed] look at things and either fix what you're trying to survive or GTFO. Cuz survival ain't no way to live.

    Well in my case I don't smoke weed to survive her, I smoke weed because I like to smoke weed. I don't drink often any more but that's more about surviving, period. And it's had the side effect of letting the relationship continue, which I'm happy about, most of the time.

    Without passing judgement on its actual advice value, I have to say that this was a really refreshing take.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    My first wife did not like the fact that I would wake up, pull a few tubes, and hit the links everyday.

    Still pissed at you for standing me up at Soli 10 years ago, but.... . JK. You know I love you.

    In general, and not speaking at you particularly, but if you have to be in an altered state for a relationship to continue, even if that makes you happy, there might be something there to investigate. Of course I have no idea what's up in your thang, and it's your thang to do with as you please. Just sayin'.....

    I said for years my wife had to be stoned to deal with me. Luckily I calmed down after going to Retrouvaille with her, so now I think she is baked all the time because she just likes it.

    Ill never step foot out of California again if I come back. With HI the only exception.

    Going to ride from corner to corner of the state grinning, and book insurance appointments around pow days at Homewood.
