It’s been damn near a month since I’ve graced you all with a new post… And what a ridiculously tiring and busy month it’s been. The day I left you I was bound for a 10-day stint here:
To work here:
It was a tough little trip. This is our first foray into this market, and it’s quite a cutthroat market at that. We have a fair amount riding on it. So everything had to be done quickly. And everything had to be perfect. We put in 8 12-hour days in a row in all the heat and humidity the deep south had to offer. But when all was said and done, this phase of the project got done on time, and as a company man, it was a good first step in the right direction.
From there I traveled home, and without so much as a day off I started preparations for my next trip: a 1500 km German tour of 7 systems what will certainly prove to be a quite thorough, month-long ass-kicking.
The list of shit I have to do while I’m out here is damn near two pages long. And the shipment of crap I’ll need to do it all weighed better than 200 pounds. It’s going to be a long trip; my longest stint out of the country yet. And a shitload of work. But it’s not all bad. At least I’m not in the deep south any more… They do talk funny out here, but at least no one sounds like Foghorn Leghorn. And the beer is substantially better. And more importantly, the lovely Ms. Müller is currently pouring the beers for me.
I arrived in Frankfurt one week from today, and the festivities are well underway. After a weekend in the red light district in Frankfurt (fret not, I’ll tell you all about it), and a brief stint in Bavaria, I’m back at the Best Bar in Bergheim, which might as well be my Cheers. So that’s nice. It’s going to be a trip for the books, So please excuse my prolonged absence, and come join me on my German road trip.
