How nice to hear from you.
I have an idea. How about putting your need on our Club’s list server! In fact, I think I will do that right now. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Hang on, I’ll do that right now. Let’s hope you hear from someone soon!
73, Darryl, KF6DI
BTW, Dave, probably by now most of our members don’t know you or of you and that you are a long-time member of SBARC. In fact, you were our Club Secretary for quite a while, were the chairman of the Hamfest Committee and did a fantastic job for us. In fact, folks, Dave is probably the neatest, tidiest, cleanest guy you have ever met and would leave your place far cleaner than he found it! You can send Dave, K6VML, a note at dhackleman(a)verizon.net.

Subject: Hello there
I had an e-mail almost ready to send you but I accidentally erased it instead. It's too easy to do on the cheap little notebook computer I'm using. So I attached an external keyboard this time.
I was wondering if you knew of anyone who I might stay with when I make visits to Santa Barbara/Goleta. I would offer to organize their garage or a room in the house or do yardwork for the privilege. Harry and Carmen had offered to have me stay at their place but they are unable to now. Of course it is expensive to stay at a motel there and staying at a cheaper one down south in Carpinteria or Ventura is inconvenient. I talked to Harry on the air during last year's Route 66 On the Air event that our club heads up. He was glad to talk to me and very appreciative that I could leave Carmen a voicemail while he was out and about on Route 66. He was determined to do it this time and had to reassure Carmen that he would be responsible!
I start work at an Amazon warehouse in San Bernardino in a week or so. I had worked there as a temp for 3 months ending in mid-February. I was a "picker" so I pushed a cart around all 10 hours and got orders out of bins. I actually got pretty good at it and would like them to give me that job again on the warehouse floor. It is supposedly the elite position with the most pressure. As I say I liked it and I lost 17 pounds while doing it! This time I was hired directly by Amazon which means I will get benefits!
My dad is doing well for 94. My brother and I visit him daily which has kept me somewhat tied down here. Anyway it would be nice to drive up there sometime in the near future and see everyone. I don't know what my schedule is yet, last time I worked Friday thru Monday so I wasn't able to go to SBARC meetings during that time.
I hope all is well with you and Diana! Will talk again soon.
