so i got into Georgia yesterday. work sent me on the road for a job down here. i actually flew into Jacksonville, FL and then drove into Kingsland. only about a 40 minute drive. speed limit's 70 down here, as opposed to the paltry 55 we have in Hampton Roads. everybody's got a lead foot, it's great. beautiful weather so far. but it sucks cause i'm not at home. last night was the worst night of sleep i've had in a long time. i'll be a guest at the Hampton Inn here till the job's done. room's decent. i have a microwave and mini fridge that look older than me. ran to Walmart yesterday to get food and stuff. basically, i'm living on food that can be microwaved and stuff that i don't have to refrigerate. lots of Hot Pockets and Ramen Noodles. the room has complimentary wireless, so i can still post whore here on the company laptop, lol. i'm actually only working half days right now, but getting paid for full days, so that's pretty cool. i've seen a couple of nice Mustangs so far, including a Termie on the base. but it's mostly imports :rolleyes:. i'm just trying to make the most of the situation. the money i make here on the road will help bay the bill on the Mustang when i get back and maybe some other toys...

the tentative date is june 1st, but that's a projected date. they try and make those dates beyond the reasonable expected finish date. by all accounts, this job takes about 8 or 9 weeks, so we'll see what happens...
so what have you been up to, bro?

HOLY HELL, it's leadfoot.

i lived in a Marriott in Detroit for a month before they got me my apartment. it sucked. it's like living in your bedroom. lol
the company usually puts us up in suites or corporate apartments when we're on the road, but because we've got a few other jobs in this area right now, they're full. so we got stuck here. it's pretty decent, i guess...

Longest I was away TAD was for a school down in Pensacola for about two months, but it was nice because of the weather and the area, plus the Navy paid for a hotel room, rental car, and $48 a day for food. Spent it all at the bar lol.
