Stop it! You work on your own vehicle?? Excellent!!

So is your Undisclosed Location anywhere near Virginia?

sarahk

well, i do what i can. i do know what an alternator looks like and where to find the fuse box, too!

actually, the undisclosed location isn't that far from Virgina; unfortunately, i won't be going for a few weeks now. wah.

krakatoa

A couple weeks eh? We may pass each other going in opposite directions. ;P

I haven't decided yet whether to take a northerly or southerly route west. Kindof depends on the employment situation and which direction puts me in touch with the most interesting people. I'm leaning towards driving by way of Texas though. It's definitely a prettier and less monotonous drive than thru the midwest.

Well if you decide to drive thru Virginia at all, hit me up for the sights to see. The Blue Ridge mountains are amazing.

sarahk

LOL, yeah, we may pass each other, krakatoa. i don't remember ever driving through the midwest, and as long as you're not driving Fort Worth to Amarillo (bleck), the drive through the south is quite pretty.

the employment situation -- the job is taking you to San Francisco for sure? or that's a prospect? just curious.

and thanks, if i go through Virginia, i'll check with you on the sights!

krakatoa

If I get the job I applied for, it will be in San Fran.

I haven't really looked in any other places. Just lost my last job a couple weeks ago, and haven't felt really gung-ho on getting back into corporate life, but a friend in San Fran offered to pull some strings for me at Nextel, and I figured what the heck, I'd give it a shot.

I visited SanFran earlier this year, and while I'm no match for the prevailing politcs out there, there was a lot there to keep my attention for a while.

I would prefer to work in Texas or Florida. Virginia is truly home, where I grew up and all, but not many telecom jobs there.

Then again, if I don't get the job in San Fran, I may just take the summer off and travel.

Haven't had a good leisurely road trip in a long time.

sarahk

well, good luck with the job (and the hippies & commies, if you end up in SF). though taking the summer off to travel sounds wonderful; i'm not working right now, and as soon as i get all packed up to move to wherever, i'm hoping to work temp some and then take even more time off for the same thing.

last summer i drove to utah and had a blast, just me, my SUV and my music for 21 hours.

krakatoa

Thanks!

I figure if I end up in Cali, I'll make the most of the situation and irritate all the hippies & commies I can.

You might catch me on the news getting dragged behind a hybrid car! :p

So you are actually moving, not just taking a trip? That sounds exciting.

sarahk

LOL, good, we need as many irritants out there as possible, though i don't envy you the task...

i was taking a trip to the undisclosed location, but i'm also moving wherever the job hunt takes me, hopefully in the vicinity of the Grand Canyon. i'm enormously excited about it!

krakatoa

In all my travels around the country, I have yet to see the Grand Canyon. I'm thinking that'll be something to aim for this summer, along with the Painted Desert, time permitting.

I applaud the motivation to move where the work is. One of my pet peeves is chronically unemployed people complaining there are no jobs available, or no jobs they want in the area they want to live. I've spent the last 5 years committed to going where work takes me, and it's paid off pretty well. Sacrificing geographic preferences for the short term seems a small price to pay for putting bread on the table, much less for achieving early retirement.

sarahk

the Grand Canyon is amazing, the most beautiful sight i've ever seen; the Painted Desert is awesome too. if you get a choice, visit the north rim of the Canyon, i hear only about 10% of the visitors to the Canyon go there. it's breathtaking.

i'm actually moving west to be near the Canyon, that was the whole motivation. hopefully the work will take me super close.

don't make me sissify you


  • please keep the comments "cussin'"-free, and no taking of the Lord's name in vain (including in initials form and in euphemistic form). my grama reads my blog, and i don't like those words either. if you post something i don't like, i will change your wording to make you sound like a sissy.

  • p.s. if you're a troll, i reserve the right to either wingardium leviosa your butt (which means delete and ban you), or the more fun option, to put a pretty bonnet on your head and lead you around on a lovely purple leash and make you do my bidding. yay!!
