Agreed. No one forced anyone to read this post.

I enjoyed it. It is probably something I'll never get to experience. I appreciated the detailed account.

Thanks for sharing. Read the whole thing. Man, I just don't know how people do it and survive with their licenses. Close call after close call...

Thanks for the great post. It sounds like it was a blast.

To those that complained it was too long, the title did state it was the full story. Maybe in the future there should be a warning for any post over ten sentences...

Thanks for posting.

I'm a surgeon. I work an average of 15-16 hours per day. I read the whole OP. Great read. Thanks for posting, Drake.

Good read. My advice to the OP would be to break up the post into several "Update" posts over a few days, let everyone catch up, provide feedback, and still feel engaged.

This thread will die quickly because of the one huge post.


So Drake, we're all dying to know. What is Hannah Montana like in real life?
