Manassas itself ain't bad. Used to go to Bull Run National Park when I was a kid and re-imagined blood and guts and dead bodies and sepsis setting in everywhere. Good times. That was pretty cool. But limited work for locksmiths in Manassas per se, your wife and kids will be happy, good schools, nice parks, mid-level MS-13 managers for neighbors to maintain the peace and prosperity, but you're gonna be spending your time in traffic waiting to get to the lock.

It's not a where, it's a who, silly. You're just outside of MS-13's tactical operational center in Northern Virginia. You'll be all right as long as you don't fuck with Manuel. They make good neighbors and keep the streets clean as long as you don't dick with their business. They will recruit locksmiths for various nefarious activities, though. Best to keep your guard up.

Congratulations on the new job and location!

I haven't lived in Virginia for years and years, but I can tell you that DC-adjacent Virginia is more fun, although the traffic is iffy, than Richmond.

That was my first thought...if Common is a Civil War buff he's in the right place...marginally better than California!

RE: Virgina or bust.
So a short update for any that may care.

My trip was fun at times. Got to see the Grand Canyon (an item on my bucket list) hit a small snag with the time change in Texas. Thought I got there at 8 when it was really 10. So couldn't try out Texas BBQ because it was to late. Couldn't find a room in Memphis because Elvis died 40 years ago and every fan had bought all the hotels out.

The bad news is my shift still isn't here. The day it was suppose to be (the 18th) so when I called it was told the truck was even loaded yet. And wouldn't be there till the the following Friday. That following Friday I was then told it would be there this coming Wednesday day.

So for the last 2 weeks I've been sleeping on an inflatable mattress and eating out. I have only a few days worth of clothes. No pots or pans. No tools. No entertainment. No furniture. No nuttinen. My new job has been understanding and has helped me out a lot.

Other then that we have been enjoying the scenery. My wife misses her family. But I'm happy to be close to mine.

I expected a poll. Sad

Good luck. Smile

RE: Virgina or bust.
Thanks for updating us. I had wondered about you just yesterday. Hope your stuff shows up soon and intact!

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?

RE: Virgina or bust.
I once knew a girl called Virginia.

We called her Virgin for short... but not for long.

...boom tish!
