Where in the hell am I?

where in the hell have I been?

Filed under: Uncategorized — John @ 1:03 am

This week has been all about the new house. Buying it, starting to fill it, getting things working inside it, packing the old one. It’s quite tiring and sometimes stresful, but it’s for a good cause.
The week before I was in Roma, Texas. It was insanely hot, as expected. By 3 in the afternoon it was over 100 degrees outside and the breeze felt like the air coming from a furnace. We were leaving the hotel at 6:30 am, which put us in the field by 7:30, but even then it was usually 85 degrees. We also didn’t find much of anything. At least the digging was pretty easy, and we got 8.5 hours of overtime due to all the driving.
Spent one day this week surveying out near Lago Vista. A new vacation home community out by Lake Travis. We had to look at some small drainages that were going to be heavily impacted. Of course, the area we were looking at was extremely small and basically in canyons. It was beautiful, but archaeologically sterile. Lots of walking up and down steep slopes, but we were able to drive relatively close to the locations (on the bulldozed areas that will be future roads with cutesy names). I also saw 2 foxes and they were very cute.
Next week should be a little less house-intensive, although there will always be unpacking.
