crawlerdan update
« on: May 22, 2006, 05:28:16 PM »
well everybody, i havnt been around as some of you may have noticed, i check mail once a week now, but the update is-im in washington state going to school to be a civil engineer, i will be done in about two months. but am away from home and all good things there. the 4runner is good with its new gears in the rear, i will be at mcr5, as for the family-my wife is 4-5 months pregnant and this is the farthest we have made it after 4 consecutive miscarriages. so thanks for the prayers all.

any way, ill be back regularly in 2 months but all my prayers and thoughts be with the mc board members

much love-daniel benoit-crawlerdan

Dang man, I kinda wondered why you'd been gone so much, but didn't have the foggiest.  Some good money in that profession, but I'm sure the schoolin is hard, so kudos to you for sticking it out. 

Miscarriages have to be rough.  A close friend had a couple or few and began to worry, but having already had one healthy baby, the doctor told her there was nothing to worry about.  My friend and his wife had several, and she ofcoure was starting to think something was wrong with her, but the last one stuck and she's due to pop june 1st.  I think you guys have crossed the threshold for worrying, probably time to start considering it a done deed.  Good luck on the schoolin, great luck on the chillins, glad to know everything is ok with you guys.  Keep in touch man 
RIP KYOTA

I was just wondering about you the other day.  Glad to see you are ok and still around.  Congratulations on the pregnancy, my wife is also 4.5 months pregnant (we are due Oct. 14).  Our thought and prayers are with you and your wife.

Glad you are going to make MCR5, Dan. It'll be good to see you again. I assume you won't be tormenting the wife on the trail again this year.
Good luck with this latest try.
