I have been on unemployment and looking for a job since December 1st. Although it is very conducive to caching, it is not good for the wallet or the self-esteem. This last Wednesday I got a call while ice fishing with a fellow cacher(Scrappy Scout) from the owner of Ripon Truck Repair. He said he had a job available and was wondering if I would be interested. We set up an interview for the very next day. When I got there on Thursday I had a talk with him and I was offered the job, and I started the very next day.
I am so glad to be working again, especially at a place to close to home...it has been 10 years since I have had to drive less than 45 minutes to get to work, and the gas savings is a nice bonus as well. I now spend all day sandblasting frames and crane kits off of military vehicles that have been in action and need to be re-furbished. I love sandblasting, but it has been years, and involves stretching muscles that have not been stretched in years. I now get home and want to kick up my feet and rest.
Now caching will have to wait for the weekends only, oh well!!
Keep checking back, I am hoping to do some caching this weekend!
