Default Holy Road Trip.

Well as of 3 pm today I was asked if I can drive to Minnesota tomorrow to fix a broken down locomotive. So the electrician and myself are driving down. I have NO CLUE where in MN I am driving to, all I know is it is supposed to take 12 hours to drive there, maybe more.

Can anyone say OVERTIME, lol.

OT? I hope so but in one of my previous jobs were got mileage for the driving, not paid by the hour sadly; so after learning the hard way (6hrs to NYC) it was "Buy me a plane ticket" from then on.

We are taking a company truck, possibly the brand new Dodge pickup with the Hemi in it. they give us a gas card too.

I'm trying to find out where, but I might not know till tomorrow when I get to work.

And anything over 8 hours a day is OT

Depending on how it works out, If we take all day ( 8 hours) to fix the locomotive, then we drive back Saturday and the entire trip back is OT, cause I am over my 40 hours for the week.

Looks like we are going somewhere close to Duluth, so that means it will be a 13 hour drive without stops, so maybe closer to 15, lol.


Well at least it'* not like driving to WCBF, well I did sleep most of that trip anyhow.

Yes, the taxman likes it too. Anything after 44hrs in a work week and the taxman rubs his hands in a very evil fashion.

Have a good trip Mike!
