[QUOTE=Ben;137221]holly *****, $600 for an enthuza. F that. QUOTE]
actually, i'm not even sure it's nice. the last enthuza i had (on the 99) looked like it's welded in some backwaters of GA.

$600 for a Miata exhaust. that'd buy.. about 1/5 of my car. F that big time.

Damn, dude, what do you do? My longest stretch was six months at the Extended Stay America in Amherst, NY (suburb of Buffalo). That job was 10-14 hours a day, seven days a week, with one day off in total. Second longest was 4 months (to the day) at the ESA in Burbank CA. Lots of radio stations to build...

I hear you about the overtime, per diem, and lack of general BS spending. The Buffalo gig was my first job out of college. I arrived penniless, and when I got home I paid cash for a new Integra, a big-screen TV, etc.

Ironically, I'm typing this from a Residence Inn in St. Louis. Only been here a week tho, and leaving tomorrow.

I work for FEMA in a temporary office in midwest city. FEMA pays for everything. $50 per day for per-diem, they pay for my hotel, they pay for fuel, and pay for my rental. I also pull 15 hours of OT per week. It helps.

I'm a "natural hazard mitigation planner" today. I also do a program called 404, 406 project review, and NFIP management. I pretty much deal with any project that lessens the affects of natural hazards, the money behind them, and I manage the mitigation planning program for the region.

Since Katrina I've payed off my $18k credit card bill, bought a notebook computer, subaru outback, $10k in miata ****, membership at a local racetrack, and I'm about to buy a 64"dlp after I take 2 months off to travel around the US and see if I can't hit a chopper drop in Alaska.

I have a good portion of money, but absolutely no social life. I am like a machine that gets up at 6 to work 7am-6pm, then lift until 8, 45 minutes of cardio, cook dinner, and go to bed; every day. I am also 90 minutes from a bad *** track, so i'm there once per month for a track day, but my car is still stock.

Hopefully i have a job lined up for me in the office after this disaster...if I don't go to wherever Dean hits.


I couldn't do it without Residence Inn. They make traveling and extended stays bearable. I've lived in marriots for like 20 months now (3 months in a W Hotel was nice); I have more reward points than god.

**** that. I have a good crew, I'm close to a great track, close to home, and will have too much **** to take home. However...I'd love to get sent down by Houston so I can run MSR houston.


At least if I go down south I can show up at BEGi in person and trade out the parts I need.

Is this just a "**** on the young guys for a few years" gig? I mean, is there the possibility in the future to sleep in your own bed more often than not, or will you need to find a different job for that? I did an on-site assignment for a couple years to get out of debt, but after that I was able to have a regular office job - I'm not sure I could do the long-term hotel bit for a whole career.

Yes and no. Its mostly retired people doing this gig. They work 6 months, take the other 6 off...and they typically bring their spouses and **** like that.

I hope to end up with a permanent job, but considering employment with the federal government is an entitlement program for x-military, I am not totally confident that it will come to fruition. However, Its nice to pay in as much as I am on student loans. My social life has taken a real hit. However, I've had a ton of time to hit the gym daily. I would love to go public and contract on the other side of this gig, but I'll do that out of necessity before I choose to do it.

If you really want too much information...right now, I'm about at my whit's end with work, and need to go home for a while. However, my roommate is now engaged, and I have a new roommate so I don't really want to go home either. I mean ****, I've been home just over 30 days in almost 2 years...and I have a miata to build when I get there.
