Default Next week will be my last in JC.

Finally....

Got great exit reviews, but the well has dried up on how I can contribute. Happy to have contributed what I did, but certainly ready to move on.

Next Thursday night will be 98 nights with Hilton this year. I either move on to my next project quickly, or possibly something even more interesting and lucrative. Stay tuned.

Yes Gene, you did miss a lot. I've been on a high profile project since last September. I traveled basically 2 weeks a month to Jersey City (and St. Louis and Omaha) over the past year. Made some nice friends at the hotel in JC and got some great customer service.

That comes to and end next week. I may finally get some peace and quiet and not have to travel so much. I'll either get assigned to another big project, which has already been indicated to me who it is, or I explore something new, and even more lucrative. Travel with that one would be to Atlanta, and we all know why I'd enjoy that.

If you can't say, that's cool, was just curious as to nature of your work, as it forces you to stick it out in some motel for extended periods of time.....I could understand if you building/installing unique stuff for high level security/etc....

but anything else is something that could be done by remote control...no??

at any rate, if it's top level shit, I"m jealous, would have loved to be involved in that, a good mental/interesting challenge, keep brain occupied.....

and if it's .mil related, having the chance to play with the BEST toys.....

What is considered a "big project"?

IT?

Having never been to those events, I didn't realize there was any money involved. Hence my joke.
