    I just got home from my last day of work with my now old company. I was there for about 4 years. It was my first real career job after the military and college. A bit bitter sweet but the company I accepted an offer from gave me an offer I couldn’t turn down.

    I don’t start until May 13th so I’ve got over 2 weeks to fk off. I bought a flight out to Vegas. I’ve got a rental car lined up and I’m going to take a scenic route through Cali and up the Pacific highway all the way up to Seattle where a good buddy lives and visit some of my old military buddies along the way who live out there. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do so if anyone has any “must sees” let me know!

    I’m taking 7 days to get up there. The contingent plan I have is to take a lot of back roads on my way from Vegas to the pacific highway. Going through Death Valley and the Sequoia National Park and starting in Santa Barbara on the coast. I’m looking at roughly 38 hours drive time give or take which is a lot to do alone but I’ve always wanted to do this so here it goes!

    Cant turn down a great opportunity but realize the company you are leaving now gave you the shot you needed to get this new job now, they took a chance on you when maybe nobody else did 4 years ago.


    Tell them thanks for that.

    Lol I wish. Obviously it’s not that long but it’s what really jump started my career. Most people my age don’t wait for opportunities to open up at their current company, they move as opportunities come available elsewhere

    I did. I was real close with my boss. We would text about sports all the time and golf on Saturday mornings and stuff. They wanted to keep me but for various reasons I had to walk. It ended on good terms

    Columbia River Gorge is worth seeing too if you're in Portland at all.

    Take a detour inland from the coast to see Crater Lake. Will not disappoint.
