    I sold boats at the McCormick boat show in Chicago for 10 years
    Between the parties after the show and talking to a gazillion people I didn't have a voice left or a liver

    When I was 18-23 years old I worked the San Francisco Boat Show at the Cow Palace in the Sanger booth...It was the time of my life. We were a Bay Area Sanger dealer and back then the booth work force was Larry Schwabenland...Maurice Tarvin..and a host of other special people. One year they brought in Dwight Bale and some other drivers I don't recall. Could not have been a better five days for me...

    Doing car shows, sometimes the booze was to help deal with the people;) I was never wired for the sales and people thing.

    Used to work the LA show when it was in LA and was legit. It was exhausting to say the least! Get some rest old timer! :D

    Worked the Ultra booth for 1 day and that ruined me.

    I now work software conferences (3-4 days) of exhibit halls and I am beat for a week after.

    Pretty much slept all day today other than going to go get my kids from school. Stacy has been in and out of bed all day as well.. She's going to bed right now and it's 8pm.

    We definitely should have stayed the extra day and just relaxed before the drive home.

    That's funny shit...He forgot he was dealing with the hooligans here that know him as "River Dave"


    The important folk probably refer to him as "Dave Johnson"

    He needs another nap;)

    When I was in the porn business we would have 2 big shows a year in Vegas and Hollywood Florida. I don't remember besides some of the greatest days of my life. But I couldn't walk afterwards because of all the standing then the funk of meeting everyone.

    Good times.

    You call it "Standing and the funk of meeting everyone."

    The rest of us refer to that as "Blue balls." :D

    Not sure I get it.. are you suggesting I post everything from the boat show immediately? It would be impossible. It takes days to write the stuff?

    Kids are finishing unloading and the girls are putting everything back. I just got back from returning the trailer to @Nordic Boats (Thanks again!)

    life should be more back to normal in a few hours.

    I don’t know if I caught something at the boat show or what.. but I have literally been sleeping since Monday. I slept 20 of the 24 hours yesterday and just woke up right now.. and I could easily go back to bed. I don’t feel “sick” just really tired and weak.

    i have had the cough and little bit of sinus for a month but while it’s lingering I feel like I’m over it..

    I’m feeling alright today but again just slept for 20 hrs.. I’d say the boatshow kicked my ass but four days later wtf?

    Same here.
    Had a chest cough and pounding headache.
    Went to bed the other night at 5pm and still in bed at 9am the next day.
    I tried having coffee this morning and went back to bed
    I'm wore out
    Good thing I know a pharmacist:)
    Mrs EZ knows it's serious if I'm still in bed past 8am
