    Yeah, High Angle is in Paradise. And yeah Jesse is my new boss. Good guy to work for. Did ya all know that he gets everything done with just 3 employees? Him, me and a machinist. I'm replacing the previous guy whos last day was today. And I cannot believe how much the phone rings.... :eek1: :eek1:


    I take 20 to almost Marysville, then a two lane road that connects 20 to 70. Can't remember the name of it right now. Long ride...I'm gonna end up moving to Chico really soon. $3.20/gal for diesel at 780 miles a week... :eek1: :eek1: :eek1:

    Cool, I forgot about this post..

    Anyways, I've found a new place up in Paradise. This coming week will be the last week I have tomake the commute. :)

    And no, I don't do the welding. The other guy does that and the balancing. I just do everything else. ;)
