    Between my Silverado and my parents' Tahoe, I'm going to be involved in putting quite a few miles on some Chevy vehicles. Have family and friends to visit in 3 or 4 different places for Christmas. Then I'm driving elsewhere to party with friends on New Years.

    I really enjoy driving, though, so I'm kind of excited.

    Going to Arizona to be with the inlaws, but will probably take the Buick instead of the truck. Happy Holidays all!

    The Wife dogs and myself will be heading to up North East PA. We moved south tho get away from the snow but we seem to visit the most when there is snow on the ground.

    Well plans change for me I went from being able to have some fun to working AFTERNOONS thanks to this snot nosed SOB who is the same age as me and didnt seem to care if he had a job or not his parents must be loaded! because he acted like he was 5 and could do whatever he wanted. So yesterday he gets fired, and we all have to take a bite out of the shifts that he was working and i drew the short straw on the 25th! i hate lazy people who dont seem to realize that the real world is just that!

    That stinks Mike...sorry to hear. Hopefully, Santa will be extra nice to you for this...maybe you will even find an easy fix for your heater :money:

    We are not doing anything special this year, just spending a relaxing time with family. Both my side and wife's side of the family all live with a few miles of us, so we seldom get caught up in the travel.

    btw, how old is this guy who did this to all of you??????

    Not just to me we work as a team, with only one person on per shift, 24/7 so you always have someone here.. and he was probably 25ish im only 26. But he had the night shift and just didnt do anything for his shift duties which if you havent noticed when im on the site here at night a whole lot gets done on the site here since there isnt anything to really do here at work... HAHAA....
    And if i wasnt driving 240 miles to the inlaws on the 23rd now i have to leave in the morning on the 25th (btw a REALLY bad travel day on the I35 corridor) instead of the 26th at my leausure.

    Yes, we can always tell when you are working and we know when you move from swing to days. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and you will be able to bring some great leftovers to work with you.
