So the old project is winding down. Looks like I won't have to go Up North anymore. Looks like I might get to work near where I live.

Looks like I was wrong.

The new project requires a wee bit o' travel. Not as far as the old project, in fact 30 miles less (one way) than the old project.

Still and all, me and the Big Girl are putting far too many miles on ourselves.

Wears a fellow out it does.

But hey, last I checked, the pay check still comes in every other week.

They call the shots.

They say "travel".

I say "How far?"

Oh well.

As the great man* said "It is what it is..."

I'll try to keep blogging through all this, but I noticed that the posting frequency for this month has dropped a bit. Hopefully, the quality is still there. YMMV...

*Sources vary as to who said this first. So I'll keep it vague.


  1. Ah, the life of a Road Warrior. At least ya get to drive to where you're going and come home on weekends (that would be opposed to flying off somewhere for a month or three, or longer. DAMHIK.). You should thank The Deity At Hand for BIG favors. :-)

    1. Oh believe me, having had to travel away from home in the AF, I thank the Lord every day for these short trips.

  2. The Cuz, now that he's retired, does contract work for a certain gov't contractor.
    This week he's away from home at Leavenworth.
    Sometimes, though, he is on the other side of the International Dateline.
    The downside is there's no time for sightseeing ...unless he extends his stay on his own dime.
    The upside is the frequent flier miles.

    1. The Nuke travels for the Navy, recruiting for Nuclear Propulsion. She has a LOT of hotel points and frequent flyer miles.

      Just not much time to use them!

  3. If it puts $$ in the bank, and food on the table, we do what we have to!


Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
Can't be nice, go somewhere else...
