    Not much really noteworthy except for all the a**hole truckers that were out yesterday. Quick disclaimer, that's not an indictment against the whole industry, just was surprised that the ratio of a**hole truck drivers out yesterday was the highest that I ever saw it.

    Yes, we drove straight through and thankfully the wife was with me since we switched driving duties all night long.

    And last but not least, I sure as heck ain't doing that road trip again if I have to go back to OK in a couple of months.........................

    I have found that a "show your tits" sign on your window works wonders to keep up the morale on a long road trip, even if you do get the 60 year old flaps everyonce in a while. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Yup. What happened is that I decided not to take the NM job because the town is a pisshole (I could elaborate further, but I'll wait until later when I'm thinking clearly) and I ended up interviewing at two depts. yesterday in OK before I left.

    One dept. might hire me (better pay /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif, less "attitude" /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif), I'll have to call back. The other has a formal process so if I don't get the first job, I'm going to fly back in a couple of months and start the process with the other. I got the feeling yesterday that they really want me, but they have procedures to follow and it wouldn't be fair, since the chief is sweeping out the "dirt"...........

    Well, problem was that I was on the road for all night and I don't think the wife would like me unleashing the Stinger on boobs going down I-40. Besides, there were very fews cars out on the road. I don't need to see Billy Bob Trucker's Man Boobs at 3am.............. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I had my expectations of the town. I come from a small town from up the road so they were not exactly high, but when we rolled in Sunday afternoon, I started cringing. My wife was about ready to tell me to keep driving. I was shocked to say the least.

    Then it didn't help matters none when we went to the grocery store and found bare shelves and the head guy there told my wife more about his foot problems than anyone really needs to know about /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Not to mention the guy has a big mouth and gave me some very important information concerning their suppliers......................

    Not to mention the town, just the way it's set up is just plain weird and the car starting up with one of it's weird electrical glitches, just in Ft. Sumner and some other weird crap. I felt like I was in one of those Twilight Zone episodes where the outsider comes to town and the town's people are trying to lure him in, and they are all fawking some kind of psycho cannibals.

    I was set on the job, but I thought about it after I left and I couldn't even see myself living there. The dept. seemed like it was decent, though the sheriff, who I was suppose to talk to was gone to Silver City for a court hearing................................

    I-40 is a crappy road trip. About a year and a half ago I drove from Colorado Springs down I-25 to I-40 on into California and up Hyw 99 to Sacramento then onto I-5 to Hyw 20. Was like a little over 1900 miles but I did it in 22 1/2 hr's by Myself. I drank enough coffee to stop constipation for life.
