Good news, I have an interview with BNSF.  The bad part is I have to make a 1000 mile road trip to North Dakota next week.  I sure wish the weather was more predictable up there right now or else I would ride my bike.  Now I have a boring ride in a cage, but I will be happy to make the trip if I can get a job out of the deal.


GOOD LUCK
WITH IT

The high taxes and cost of living is my biggest issue with NY.

don't forget over governed and over regulated by down state politicians...

BNSF would be a nice gig so would NS or CSX......good luck !!

Taking off tomorrow towards North Dakota.  Just wish it was on the C14 instead of a Volvo.   :-[

Fingers crossed that they find me qualified to take care of a billion ton train.   ;D

Made it back yesterday after 2100 miles in three days.  The interview went well.  The only thing that I am worried about is my traffic tickets.  If I had a perfect driving record I know I would have the job locked up.  Now I just wait to hear what they decided.

Many oil and gas companies now are hiring ex and retired military for line security....."Gas Line Police"......and some of the northern companies are hiring "animal" relief personnel to keep the workers safe from bears and other animals....

I read something about this a while back....will try and find it again...

The speeding tickets simply prove you are the man if pursuit is needed.  Think positive 8)

They made me a contingent job offer.  That is the good part.  The part I need to figure out now is where I'm gonna live.  The bad part is that since the job is in North Dakota, my family will stay here in Missouri for the first year or so since I will be kept very, very busy. I will probably end up selling my motorcycle to be able to buy a travel trailer to live in for the time being.  I really don't want to do it but I can't live in a tent or support two separate households for at least a year.
