So the potential job

Will have me in the Northern VA area for 3 to 5 months, then a few days every six months. They’ll cover the hotels, airfare etc. Nice.

So I had to download the Northern VA Code Plug for my TYT MD-380 DMR radio.

Spent the day in Fairfax, VA today – nice little place but spread out like all hell. And the parking garage at DCA  – ugggh. It’s fucking insane. To get to it you have to go in where it says DO NOT ENTER then down a ramp and there’s the spot where the Zipcars are parked.

And let’s not talk about the fact that DCA shuttle is a fucking bus. In fact coming home my flight was at gate 35X. I now know what the X stands for – it means you’re being bused to your aircraft.  I hope Ronald Reagan is spinning in his grave.

Flying down we were on a Bombardier CRJ900  jet – nice one.

The flight back was an Embrear EMB-145:

And TSA – it’s definitely security theater. For example, if you’re 75 or older you don’t have to remove shoes, belt or jacket. I know I’m full of piss and vinegar enough that when I’m 75 I’d be a terrorist. :) You see my point there don’t you?

One thought on “So the potential job

  1. Ive been on both these jets for flights round the UK and love them both because they are reasonably small (I stow a bag) so you’re not standing at the carousel for hours.
    We’re going to Spain next week from London City Airport (which I hate) so hope this stupid snow mania has gone here by then.
