Go West Young Man

It's cold here. Not in the single digits but still it is rather uncomfortable for southerners.

So what do you do?

You answer the phone. Hello, Do you have the time to bring your scooper out to Phoenix to pull some samples? How fast do you need me?? Can you be here Thursday? Oh!! heck yea!!

So it's time for another trip. I get to fly this time. I am a bit excited. This will be as far west as I have ever been. Mid 70's during the day will be quite a treat compared to the highs in the mid 40's on my last trip. I will be on call the first day so I will be working in the hotel room. I might just set up out by the pool. It's a dry heat right?

I will be a few miles outside Phoenix. They usually dont stick power plants real close to town. This is the first trip I have been on where I dont get my own car. I will have to catch a cab for the first time in my life. I know, deprived huh? LOL

I have a question. How much for a 20 mile trip? Do you tip the driver? I dont typically tip the pilot.

So hopefully I will have something to write about from the trip. Hopefully it wont be about me getting groped by the TSA.

I heard this last week "The TSA pat down is so thorough that the American Medical Association has determined that you only need one every 5 years".

That's funny,looking forward to hearing about your trip. Hope it's a safe one with a little fun thrown in.

It's been a loooooong time since I got on a plane. I usually spend the days before in total panic that it's going to crash and then completely relax once it's in the air. Stupid, yes, but that's the way it is.

Enjoy the warmth. Take pictures. Blog.

Don't let them grope you.

Safe flight.

last time i took a taxi (20 years ago) it was $1 per every mile and yes, it's nice and dry out here. Phoenix is not the best, so if you can drive out to Sedona or even Scottsdale, do so. Regarding the flight don't forget to turn your head and cough....lol

let's see some pics too while your at it...I'm talking about the scenery...not the TSA groping.

On Thanksgiving, a woman went to LAX in a bikini so she wouldn't have to be patted down. The screener thought it was so funny that she let her through.

Say "Hi!" to my AZ bro while you're out there! And enjoy the weather!

I've never taken a taxi either, so don't feel bad.

It's December and in the mid 70's here in LA. :-)
