Thanks Mike.
I am quite scared though. Not of the job, of everything else. This has happened 2 months too early. My family will not be coming w/ me. There is a house to sell, and kids school and ...???

NH Kevin,

You will have to keep us posted on the cheese runs in the Green Bay area :D... just kidding, but I here there is a great place to ride called Black River Falls or something up in Wisconsin. I need to check on it. I heard, great camping and a well run facility. This info came from the guy I bought my WR from. Always ready for a road trip -- GOOD LUCK. :)

Hey Kevin,
Look me up when you get here, I haven't got my new bike yet, but I still have a quad, and I have bikes I can borrow. There are a few places to ride yet. Black River Falls closes Oct 15, but there are more than that.Let us know when you arrive!!

If this does happen, WI, I will try to find enough areas to have an Midwestern Moab for us Central U.S. guys.

Sure can't promise anything though. Dave Van-bee will be my point of contact.

WI was supposed to call on Friday but didn't...I gave them every e-mail address and phone number in the book to get a hold of me at work.

How far are you from Two Rivers (just north of Manitowoc)? I am to be at the plant (Point Beach) for two days of exams and interviews.

Love to go have a brew w/ you!

Kev, I did the Central Village ride for fun this weekend with some of the guy's from the Amanoosuc ride, and they want to make sure when you start off to Wisconsin, you top off your gas tank. Keep in touch, Ron

Subject: Is no Point Beach AO news...Bad news? :-(


No, not really . . .

We are actually in the midst of a "hold" on hiring until we can get some
budget issues worked out. This does not mean that we will not be hiring
AOs, it just means we're going to have to wait like everyone else. So, hang
in there -- you are on the list and we will get in touch with you no matter
which way it goes.

I am relocating to our Kewaunee office and can be reached at 920-xxx-xxxx.
My new email will be dsierac and should be available by Thursday.

Also, Danielle at 920-xxx-xxxx will always have current information on
the AO file.

Good luck!
