    Last post for a while

    Boozhoo niji,

    OK well this is it. Tomorrow is my last full day in Florida and I still have a lot left to do. I will be calling my ISP tomorrow and cancelling my account. So I won't be posting again or even logging on for a few days in the very least. I know my uncle does not have internet at his place, so I will have to take it where I can get it.

    The camper is done, the van is almost done but I can finish it when I pick up my other stuff. Hopefully by then I can have some more money saved up and can pay for a few extra things, like gasoline.

    OK so I am trying to figure out if there is a shorter way than i have been going, so I am mapquesting it and gonna try to figure it out, but seriously I think the way I have been going is the best.

      OK so I lied thisis the last post, but I just had to show yall this...

      Go on Map Quest and search for White Earth MN, then zoom in, and superimpose the areal image. The dance arena there shows up as a road! Well not the dance arena itself but the path that goes around it. Its clearly marked.

      Check it out!

            Hey to save gas, take your time. 45 MPH is the optimum speed for the best gas mileage for a lot of cars and vans. Take the back roads which are more direct most of the time. GOOD LUCK!

              Got there, or here, you know where I am

              Boozhoo niji,

              I just found a place to hook up so here goes, hopefully before they chase me out.

              I got to my uncles home late Friday. Everyone ben hearing about those twisters in Minnesota? Well they were about a block away from my Uncle's place that morning. No damages came to his place which was good. I spent the weekend doing practically nothing, I did go with my uncle though to help cut up some wood that the tornadoes did drop around there. Yeah he has a cabin about a mile away, shares it with family.

              Mon day I went job hunting and I got a couple of good prospects. I know one place where I can practically walk in and start working if I want to, but its not exactly what I want to do and its also 60 miles from my Uncles place. Tuesday I went looking and found a couple more good prospects. Again this place over in Bemidji will probably hire me, its only 30 miles away, but that place seems cold and sterile compared to the first place.

              Today I am going to see if I can find a place to live closer to that first place, and then go to leech lake rez to see if I can find work there. Rumor has it a business there is looking to expand into Park Rapids, so I am definately going to check that out. Will keep you posted, but so far things are looking great! Hope to see some of you at White Earth this weekend.

              Derek

                      Boozhoo niji,

                      Hey yeah it was good to meet 3 of you, at the pow wow, cesptite the nasty mess. I started that job and have worked a week so far, and it sure is not as easy as fixing lawnmowers. I have been working on large trucks mostly. I just hope I can meet my employers expectations.

                      My other worry right now is finding a place to live. Where I was staying at my Uncle's place was 55 miles from where I work. I moved in with a friend of mine in Waubun, only 28 miles away, but that is going to change around in Septtember. So I am looking around looking for a cheap place to rent, or stay or figure some way of buying a house.

                      So that is where I am at, I have another thread to start, and I think I can come online at least weekly for now, so stay tuned.

                      Derek

                        I have been a member here for quite a while (joined a year or two ago but never posted/rarely visited) and just started posting a few weeks ago - I've been enjoying myself so far, I sort of skipped a formal introduction though so I thought I would do so.

                        I always had some lung problems, including several bouts with pneumonia, and mild, exercise-induced-asthma, but for a year now, my asthma's been so bad I don't know what to do. Even right now, I'm awake because every time I try to lay down I wheeze and cough til I have to sit back up to get some air!...
