Clancy is on the hunt and we’re on the road. Clancy has two or three interviews in the northwest and we’ve decided to make a road trip out of it. There is one interview in Arapaho (pronounced Ah-RAW-pah-hoe) and another in Shoshona (shuh-SHONE-ah). There may be a third interview in Cascadia after a detour to our old haunt in Deseret, where she needs to take a certification exam.
Our original plan was for her to do some temporary work in Sierra or maybe Cascadia, but none of that seemed to pan out. There was an opportunity in Dakota, but we weren’t anxious to spend any time there. The other bite was from Dent County, Araphao and they’re interested in her full time. Dent County, as it turnes out, is near the Deseret border in the tri-state area at the borders of Shoshona, Arapaho, and Deseret, about two hours from Mocum (where I worked in Deseret).
Meanwhile, there was an opening in Shoshona that was of great interest. In fact, Gemini Falls in Shoshona has been high on my list of desirable places for a few years now. Within a 50 mile radius there is a cluster of universities and/or institutions that draw a reasonably well-educated and middle classish population. In the over-25 population, the rate of BA/BS graduates is between 2x and 3x that which we are used to seeing. Ben Folds made his way to the city the last time he toured the region. We’re really looking forward to getting a lay of the land.
After those two interviews we will be staying in Deseret for a few days so that she can get her certification or whatever and I can meet up with old friends. We’re also going to stop by a local resort town for a day. From there it’s on to a possibly third interview in eastern Cascadia or possibly back to sign some employment papers in the Gemini Cities if that pans out.
All of this is the long way of saying that I will be in and out the next week and a half or so. I should have enough time for regular posting and commenting since I will not have as much to do this trip than Clancy will, some days I will be more communicative than others.
