Big Change - For real this time

So, it's been over a month since I posted. Sorry... I've been a little busy.

I decided to take my blog title seriously, and I accepted a seasonal position as a Paramedic for the National Park Service at Lake Mead. That means that the last week of April, I moved cross-country for the summer.

It's been a very interesting transition. After a month, I'm getting used to the desert. It's been very ironic that the East Coast has been hit with some very nasty rainstorms and flooding, while out here, weq've had rain sprinkles one night, and the local weather folks got all excited over a few drops of rain.

I've also had to get used to the altitude, and that's been a gradual thing as well.

The land is beautiful, even if it is in a drought.

Anyway.... Sorry for the absence. It's been a busy couple of months with getting prepared, tentatively accepting the position, buying a new car, actually getting the official job offer, then packing up and moving, and then getting settled out here. I've got some posts pending about some of my adventures on my road trip, as well as my adventures on my days off. Oh, I'll talk a bit about some of the differences in my role out here, but the usual privacy stuff applies, so I've got to be careful.
