Man, it’s amazing how a two-week project has turned into a month of work. Dad and were on site from 7am to 7 or 8pm every day this week, Monday to Sunday. We spent most of the last four days testing and repairing the problems with our cheap little fiber pigtails. It continues to frustrate me that the designers didn’t put the zones in order in a logical way. On the plus side, I got a LOT of exercise! Nothing like walking all the way around the football stadium every time you need to find a new zone!

Motel 6. Duh duh duuuuhhhh.

Think of the sound of an insane asylum and you can hear this picture

I don’t know if you’ve ever stayed in a Motel 6, but all the stories you’ve ever heard. One of our boys was solicited for a cigarette in the parking lot. When he replied that he doesn’t smoke the lady offered him to come up to her room and “share a big bowl of sketti” with her. Let’s just say I felt safer with the cockroaches that lived in my room than with the clientele that lived across the hallway. Happily we only stayed two nights there and have been returned to our happy homes with the free washing machine.

We did make some good progress this week. We had some new cables dropped off, and all but the last 7 or 8 locations have been run. There might actually be light at the end of the tunnel.

You’re not afraid of heights, are you?
