Our middle son has been a night foreman at a diesel shop in Fairbanks for the past couple years. He was feeling in a rut recently so yesterday he called Raytheon about Antarctica jobs. They told him that if his references checked out they would fly him to Denver for an interview. They must have been awfully good references because he was hired over the phone today and told him he was going to be the lead heavy equipment mechanic at the South Pole. He sold everything he owns today, except his tools and clothes. At a salary of $250,000, he figures he can replace everything when he returns. I wonder if they need a bass player?
