It's actually 7.....

4:19 am - Saturday - December 8th - Campbellsville, KY - 31º F (feels like 27º F), 69% humidity, wind 4 mph out of the north......partly cloudy today with a forecast high of 35º F.

Back to work day is always the hardest for me mentally, and Friday was no exception to that rule.  I was ready to go home by the end of the first quarter......9 am.  We all started out the day being moved around a lot.  By 7 am I was in my 6th Pick Mod, P-3-E.....as you know 'E' is my least favorite Pick Mod, but there I was moving from 3-E, to 4-E, back down to 2-E, and then 1-E just before lunch.  I was back bouncing around 'E' in the 3rd quarter, after lunch, but finally was sent to Pick Mod P-1-F for about 90 minutes during the 4th quarter before being moved back to P-3-E, then 4-E, then back to 2-E to end the fourth quarter.  Finally by the end of the day I was feeling much more like myself.

We exited the concrete bunker to 35º temps, and it was cloudy and blustery.....a perfect winter day if you are into such things.  I'm pretty much over 'perfect winter days', and am quite ready for some sun, 70's temps, and a little bicycle riding.  Shortly after returning home we got an e-mail from the Camperforce folk advising our (shift DH-3) end date had been moved up to December 19th, and that we could even be released as early as the 15th if we wished, and still get our completion bonus ($1/hour worked)......



We are in shift DH-3....the one circled in red

.....so there it is.....there are actually now just 7 work days left (barring any MET days between now and then, which looks unlikely).  We will be rolling our wheels a few days earlier than expected.  That actually works out much better than the original 'End Date' of 12-23 (a Sunday), which would have had us leaving Monday morning to get down to Nashville (157 miles) with the Newell, and catching our late flight home (5:30 pm) all in one day.  Now we'll have time to get the Newell properly set up for cold weather, and do a little touring around Nashville!  Perfect!

Now if I can get out of Pick Mod 'E' Saturday....thanks for stopping by!
