    To be honest I questioned weather or not I should do it before hand and I still question it. I knew I wasn't going to be in this job long anyway (I have been here a year and a half and didn't expect it to last this long) and didn't know if I had the right to mess with a system that people were obviously ok with. I knew what I was getting into before I made that call and figured that I could take that bullet better than anyone else there since I wasn't planning on staying. Everything played out pretty much like I figured it would with the only exception being that the Dept of Labor did such a crappy job that the back pay for most of the guys was a fraction of what it should have been....and I am talking about tens of thousands of dollars short.
    I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.

    Congrats on the new gig!

    Talking to the wife about maybe hitting the trail for this weekend. Last day at this job is Friday (unless I can talk my way out of it) and I start the new one Monday. I think camping would be a great break in between.
