    Actually, I need to kill two birds with one thread: I've never introduced myself, and I need some constructive advice which, even though I've been reading many asinine posts from a good-sized fraction of this board's membership for the past couple of weeks, I hope to mine like Gold from a Mountain of Ore.

    I've worked from Boulder, CO for the past 4 years as a Chemical Engineer in Refineries in Wyoming. I absoultly LOVE the High Plains, Moutains, Rivers.....all aspects of life here.....even the wind and snow. My company will be merging with another, and I'm about 25% concerned that I might be laid off as a result. I need to support Delilah, a 15 yo, a 13 yo, a 7 yo, a Shi-Tzu, and Hammy, who you may already know about.

    So, I've been interviewing for another position that will, eventually require that I move back to Houston in 5-10 years. I met my potential future employer yesterday, and will have a third round of interviews in January. Either this guy was ill, or really does have the personallity of dishwater, but the job would essentially entail National Travel (mostly through the "Rust Belt) at first, then internationally (in 5-10 years) worldwide. I'll probably be offered the job (I'm perfectly qualified).

    So, whatdaya think I should do (see poll).

    Get a job with Halliburton.

    I don't think they're going anywhere.

    You should try to get a job at one of the 12 coal mine in Gillette. My soon to be if not already ex sister in law works at one on the northside of Gillette and she makes very good money.

    I dunno what you should do Samson. I know I spent around 10 yrs in a road job and if you have a family it pretty wells sucks. I hate hotels now.

    Either way, I'll be travelling at least 50%.

    But I've done this for the past 20 years, and have found that contrary to it "sucking" its probably been one reason I've not run away from home.

    Take it. Jobs don't fall off trees these days.

    Especially professional positions.

    Take it.
