    Is it against the rules to drink during work hours since I'm at home? Asking for a friend...

    Of course not.

    Alcohol is like hand sanitizer for your insides, so you’re really doing what’s best for everyone.

    I mean do normal rules really apply. Nothings normal right now, I think it could help productivity as long as your not getting Jambo( :(RIP Jambo 2020) wasted!

    As a manager - all jokes aside - I def. have a problem with someone drinking on the job. Normal rules do apply - it's hard enough working from home when we aren't used to it - no need to cloud our thinking with alcohol and increase the chance of mistakes being made. Sorry to be a party pooper!

    Also, you can’t check BAC and remain socially distant.

    Your on TW your just MallyMel here! No manager thinking counts:rofl:. I dont typically drink at home so its not something I would do anyways. Also helps I'm setup to work from home normally so the only change for me is I'm not driving to the office 3 of my 4 work days of the week.

    Vodka and gin are very low cal, add fruit to make them healthy.

    Vodka is pretty much the only thing I drink - I've been mixing it w/diet soda- so not worried about calories!

    I put a fold down table on the swing out of the 4R yesterday. Would be nice to use it while out camping one of these days.

    Lookin good! Does that finish off the bumper? Waiting to use it camping might take too long. Just use it in the starbucks parking lot to hold your beverage!:rofl:
    Hopefully you crimped them better than I did the first time...:anonymous: Does the nut on the top right not get in the way? I feel like I had to run both mine outwards to clear the table when closed. Maybe not I havent looked at it in a long time.

    I did the solder method on the crimp ends. Seems stronger than the aluminum table itself. I had to space the mounting brackets wide to accommodate the existing wiring for the camp light, and the bolts are inward to clear the camp light itself, but the table clears just fine. It's close... and for a minute I thought I was going to have to relocate the camp light mount, but I made it work.

    I figured you had a reason and that it worked. Mines on strong now but I may need to look into the solder method you used in case I ever have to redo it again.

    I basically followed the instructions I saw in a CBI install video on YouTube, except I couldn't find my gas torch so I used my cigar lighter :rofl:

    I also added heat shrink to help keep water/rust from getting to the exposed wire rope at the lugs.
