    Kinda funny when you think about it. Horrible hours, lousy food, mediocre pay...

    I wouldn't want to be anything else anymore. Maybe I've given up, or maybe I have grown to accept that God made me this way. I love my life and even this silly job.

    Life is good.

    I've been to 37 countries while I was in the Navy, and now I'm going to go back out and see the states again... So I guess the spartan life and travel are in my blood.

    Just got out of the Air Force, I like not having a boss anymore and traveling again. And choosing your own hours and when you want to take time off. Can't beat this job.

    I ##### to my self almost everyday about this job, but yet I really love waking up in a different state everyday! I really enjoy it if I can plan my day to where I can shut down on a nice mountain road for the night. Last Autumn I ran alot of west coast, so I got to do alot of Hiking and such when I went to take my 10 off. I didn't get decent miles, but the quality time I had was worth it
     
    OPUS 7 and Puppage Thank this.
