All work and no play = me at the moment

I just wanted to write to say that I'm not ignoring the blog I'm just working, working, and working.  Yesterday I thought my field work was over so I took a little break which included a hike in the hills...wait, don't I do that for work?  The break got interrupted.  Ah, back to work: 6:00-22:00 7 days a week.  I'll try to get a little break in a day or two.     


  1. you still seem to do pretty well! you seem to work crazy hours and still write more than most.

    i don't know if it's relevant but here in NYC, it was a quiet day. a ton of cops though, they were escorting people to locations (my workplace has other locations and people there had to have "minders", basically, to get them where they were going). with the amount of powerful people in the city today, it's no wonder. makes me realize that i'm on camera from the instant i leave my apartment. i'm mostly just thankful that nobody decided to blow up the manhattan bridge while my train was on it.

  2. Hopefully that means you are making more money and at least you don't have to sit in a cubicle all day crunching numbers or making cold calls.
    Enjoy whatever free time you get with the family!

  3. Hello. My name is Evy Ramos and I work for CBS47. I am working on a story about emergency preparedness and hoped you might be willing to talk to me. You can reach me at my email or the station at 559-761-0244



  4. Hi Evy, Thank you for the request to be part of your story but I have to politely decline. I do not wish to have my name or picture on television. Most people in the survivalist community do not wish to advertise to their neighbors that they are well prepared for whatever emergency may come their way. Even though there are a million people in this county it's still small enough that people would recognize me or be able to find us. I won't put my family at risk. Perhaps you should talk with GI Jim at the surplus store in Prather. He would make a great story.

  5. Hi Max, I don't make much overtime anymore. That's the problem with promoting and going on salary rather than hourly. I called in someone who works for me to come and play with me (play is what I call work, although some people get pretty pissed off when we say we are going to go play). He made quite a bit of extra money working about 100 hours of overtime. But I did make a little bit. It's going to pay for last summer's camp for the grandkids...easy come, easy go.
